I really liked that these socks are thicker than most hide-a-sock style of socks. I generally wear this style of sock with tennis shoes that I want the look of going sockless (but I absolutely cannot stand going sockless in tennis shoes!! lol!!!) The problems I saw when reading the reviews of this product where the back of the sock wants to try and slide out of the shoe does happen, but once the shoe and sock are in place properly they do not slide around - so it's just a shoe & sock combination that takes a little extra time to put on - definitely not a slide on and run type deal. Other than the time to put on factor I am very happy with this purchase. Covers enough of my foot that I know I am wearing them but still gave me the look I wanted overall.
