UPDATE: dropping my 5 stars to 3.
If you'd asked me before my recent order what my holy grail socks were, I would've said Balega Hidden Contour. I also own (and love) 2 pairs of Hidden Comfort. Anyway, I treated myself to a new pair, and I'm pretty disappointed in how they've worn. After just a couple of washes and wears (literally 2), the socks have these huge, fuzzy things. Under the fuzzy area feels thinner. My previous Hidden Contours (white) did not do this. These shouldn't do this, either, not for the price. So bummed.
These are very comfortable socks. A little spendy, granted, but if they last and keep my feet happy then I guess it's worth it. I have not had the same experience with all Balega socks (Hidden Dry shrunk like CRAZY for me) but these were fine after a washing. Very soft/cushiony.
