Well I wore them when I went camping last month. Would have been fine ... cabin rule was when you go into the cabin first thing you do is remove your shoes so that mud didn't get tracked threw (less mopping on the last day - I can live with that ;p) but for some reason the father's didn't hear this rule and wore their shoes thru the cabin. And well the soles of the socks got filthy~!~!
Since daughter was already doing a load of laundry (its one of her chores, especially when she starts to fall behind) I asked her to throw them in with the darks since I wasn't sure if they were going the shed dye or not.
Well, my daughter being a normal teenager ... didn't do them. And I found them while getting hubby ready to go on his camping trip.
As it turned out -- it was a very good thing.
I couldn't believe how much green came out of these socks.
