I had purchased these tights in anticipation of starting a new job, and had been planning to wear them with a skirt on day #3. I pulled them out of the package and started to put them on, before my foot even reached the end of the sock I noticed a large run. (Note that I always buy tights in a size bigger than recommended, to ensure that I am not over-stretching them.) They were unwearable. Complete waste of $$$. I did purchase the Argyle tights with the same order, and those seem to be wearing alright.
