I use these socks as a substitute for slippers- I'm not big on going barefoot and I have some foot problems, so I like having something soft on my feet when I'm not wearing shoes. These socks are nice and thick (which is why I don't wear them with shoes- for me, they are WAY too thick for shoes or sneakers, about the same thickness as a traditional tubesock) and despite being washed several times, the elastic has held up nicely and the socks don't lose their shape.
However, the heels have worn down on several of the pairs and I've had to replace them. We have laminate and carpeted floors so no "rough" surfaces, just regular wear and tear. But the socks are very inexpensive and hold up really well in every other way so I don't mind having to replace them every few months.
I highly recommend. I wouldn't use them for daily wear with shoes (except something very roomy, like Crocs or clogs) because of how thick they are, but they are perfect socks for lounging around, when you want something warm and cushion-y on your feet that won't slide down or roll off.
