So these socks were my boyfriend's but very quickly became mine..lol. Material is amazing, stretchy, comfy, and no rips/tears. He has to take them off of me to get them in the wash hahaha, I don't think I have touched one pair of my Nike socks since these came in to the house. I wear them around the house, outside, etc. The color has not faded at all and the material looks how it did the second he got them. Highly recommend.
