Love these socks
I won't ride without these socks any more. There are seams in the toes, but I can't feel them and they don't give me blisters. They wick away moisture and dry very quickly. They are thin, so they don't take up too much space in my boot or make me hot. And they are just over the ankle so I don't have socks up to my knees making me hot. They are worth every penny.

Great boot socks for 3/4 boots
Ordered a bunch of these, very comfortable, should wick away sweat nicely on longer rides and not bunch up.

These A* socks fit well and are very comfortable. They flow a good amount of air and keep my feet dry in full length race boots in the South Florida heat. I also think they are pretty stylish. My only concern is that after a couple of wears and washes they look pretty worn already which is why I gave them two stars for protection and durability. However, overall I would order another pair because the cost is minimal. I think I ordered the large size and I where a size 11 U.S. sneaker/boot.

Good summer socks for short rides
The socks are great for summer. Specially for short rides/commuting. I use these socks when riding with my SIDI Slash Low Cut boots.

Best socks out there?
I own a few other socks from different competitors and I really love these things; I've got several pairs. There are cheaper out there, but I feel these are a really good value for the money. They look good, breathe well, are very comfortable, and the fit is good. I wear short riding boots, so the length is perfect IMO. Long enough to cover the ankle plus a little more, but not long enough to cover the calf where socks would normally start bunching up. I wear knee protection under my jeans and since these are short they don't get in the way. If you wear full boots, the non-short versions are for you.
Only issue is after a few washes, the finish wears a bit. It's only an aesthetic issue, so not a deal breaker.
