These are clearly very well made socks. They are comfortable and don't grip too hard on your legs. But they are not thick, about like a medium weight standard sock. When it's chilly, I can't wear them. So, if you're in a relatively warm situation, I would highly recommend them. If not, I wouldn't. If the folks who make them made a thicker version, I'd buy them.
The sock are for my mother who is 85 and sometimes she slips on her wood floors and with these socks it help her not slip.

The fit is great and the grip stips are very useful.
