My husband swears by the Dockers brand, and I've become a believer too after purchasing basically every type of clothing item they manufacture, from slacks, to shirts, to underwear, and socks. I typically buy the "Cushion Comfort", but took a chance on these as possibly something a bit dressier. These are indeed a little bit dressier looking, and they are an excellent quality, but when worn with dress shoes he commented that they are just very thin and his nice dress shoes end up hurting by rubbing sore spots because of the lack of cushion. Also, his feet tend to get cold anyways and these socks really do not help. I give 4-stars because they are still good quality knit, fit as expected, and have not lost shape or stretch after washing and wearing, but they are just more thin-knit than we were expecting.
