A little bit of both because you're too lazy to take your socks and undies off after racing? That's us. And because we're classy we designed our socks to match our undies for ease.
Occasionally it is possible to enjoy one too many Recovery Drinks with teammates and "pass out", so we provided a friendly reminder on the bottom of the socks in case your juvenile friends carry a Sharpie with them where ever they go...like ours do. Because no one wants genitaila drawn on them as they slumber.
