I purchased 6 pairs of these socks for my 2 sons who both play baseball. If you are looking for great quality, look no further. These socks are the best because they protect the legs while sliding. They also hold their shape and don't get holes in them. Expensive for socks? Yes, but worth it. If you have players who are into their game, into their equipment, and into having quality apparel look no further. You won't be sorry you bought them.
