I purchased these in early 2012 and they were some of the best socks I have owned in a while. The fabric was thick, the socks were long and they were durable. They held up, didn't lose their elasticity and didn't slide down easily. I loved them. Now here I am in early 2013 and I went back to pick up more. Guess what happened? I took them home, tried them out and thought I had purchased the wrong brand. After 3 more trips to different Walmarts I soon realized I had the correct brand, but the socks have been downgraded in every aspect. I guess to save money, Hanes has reduced the quality of these socks from what they once were. The socks are 2.5 inches shorter now then they once were. The material now is thin and cheaply made. The socks themselves are not as durable as they were. The elastic does not hold up as it once did. My older sets of socks from 2012 are outlasting the new sets I have purchased! Why, oh why did they change them?! It's very irritating and frustrating when you expect a product to stay the same or even improve in quality, but in this case the opposite has happened. Now these are just like ever other brand of cheapo socks out there.
