I had a $25 gift certificate to welovecolors.com and I bought my mom a couple things. I chose these socks for myself. Although I could tell on their site how colorful the socks were, I didn't realize that they would come and would be as vivid and beautiful as they are. Sometimes when shopping online or from catalogs, I'll see things and they will look a certain way and will look drab or darker in person. These looked bright on the site and looked great and the same in person. The color I got was #7411.
These are very soft and silky and are made of nylon. I really like the material. I don't, however, love the fit. They tend to be slip-and-slidey. In other words, while I wear them, they don't stay in place. They fall off my foot. They bunch up down by my toes. They make me feel like I need "sock suspenders, " so they stay where they're supposed to be. I constantly have to adjust them by hand and pull them back up my shins.
Although the fit is a problem, I do like these and consider them a gorgeous pair of socks.
