Thanks for all the feedback. I went back today and picked them up.
I was at a shoe store earlier, looking at the C&J Grasmere. The shoes have been in the store since 2002. I'm concerned about the condition of the leather, and especially the sole, which is Dainite. The shoes are new, but doesn't leather dry out and rubber degrade/rot? I'd appreciate advice. Thanks!
I received my first two pairs of mid-calf socks this week and I love them. They are so comfortable. The top seemed slightly loose, but I walked ten hours today and they stayed up.

I wore them almost everyday for five years (yeah, yeah) and they still...

Ideally, I'd like gray socks that are darker than my charcoal suit. Unfortunately, I've searched several malls and have been unable to find what I want. A lighter gray or black seem to be the next best choice, but both look a little off to me. What do you think?
