These socks are so fun and are great performance socks. Don't be fooled into thinking these must be poorly made just because of their whimsy. I bought these to wear for a 10k St. Patty's Day pub run recently (bought these and the "lucky" clover socks and wore one of each). They are comfortable and moisture-wicking, and the collar fits snugly but not too tight, they are NOT cushioned. Sizing is a little odd... I wish they made 3 sizes. If you are right between S/M and L/XL like I am (I wear women's 10-11), I suggest sizing down. The L/XL were a little too large to fit my foot perfectly but it was more annoying than anything, did not create any discomfort.
