|Is there an expiration date or something? I notice a pair of these Air-E-Ator socks are from 2001 and probably need to be updated with the 2003 model! I think I can tell when it's time to replace socks - thanks, though. I don't see many dramatic changes over the years on these things when I glance through cycling catalogs, so I have to wonder why they bother to tell when these socks were created.|

|... manufacturers use dates to track lots... for various reasons including quality and recall issues... If a problem were caught soon enough after manufacture... it's easier to trace down the source if you know the date and place...

|Some of the designs are so goofy that I tried turning the ankle cuff down a bit to hide the design. And my ankles then said "2003."
I think the solid colors and some special runs that were made for bike clubs don't have the date stamp.
