I have a size 15 wide foot, so I’m definitely NOT part of the “majority market”. For shoes, I shop at various sites that cater to individuals with ‘larger-sized feet”. For socks to purchase, I only buy these. I have 6 or 7 opened packs and ALWAYS stock up when on sale (about 12-16 more packs unopened). These are VERY soft, fit PERFECTLY with my Nike shoes, NEVER slide down/off, and have not ever frayed/worn out/gotten holes. LEGIT, I will NEVER buy a different sock for athletics/everyday casual wear than these.
