I've been using these socks since Summer 2011 and overall I've been happy with the product. For the price point the are a great value. The socks are warm, comfortable, and do the job. Whites Diving has an opportunity to make a good product even better. If they reinforce the stitching between the top of the foot and shin they would have a killer product. As you can see in the photo's I've had to repair the seam numerous times.
