I bought these socks for my teenage kids. When they arrived, I told my daughter to pick the ones she liked and give the rest to her brother. She kept them all! There are nine pairs and they are all unique, with a different type of monster/ghoul - some of them are really funny. The pattern/concept of each sock is on the entire sock, not just the top. They are men's style socks of standard quality. I may have to buy another pack for my son!
