Dress socks that feel like running socks

Hi.  I don't run much any more but I still love my running socks and I'd
like to find dress socks, or at least black socks, that are as
comfortable.  I searched the Internet, asked at Road Runner Sports, and
have struck out.  The closest I've come is some web sites that say they
carry a sock that's made in black they don't carry it in that color.

My running socks are Ultimax Ironman, like this:

Even at the above link, you'll see a picture of the socks in a
black/grey combo but, if you try to buy them, the only choices are white
on white.

The other wrinkle here is that I have small feet and usually buy either
the women's size or the medium men's size.  My shoe size, depending on
the shoe, is between men's 7 and 8, and a 7-1/2 in my NB running shoes.
I'm 5' 7", 148 lbs., but my shoe size is small even for that - I make up
for it by wearing a EE instead. :)

So, I'm looking for your basic synthetic, slightly cushioned, wears
forever without wearing out, sock in black in a men's sock size medium.
I'm allergic to wool.

Thanks in advance.

Wigwam makes 'em in solid black (well, probably with a logo, which may
or may not be hidden inside your shoe in use) in a full (calf) length
version.  I've got a couple or three pair.  Wear 'em with black tights
running on a dark night and it looks like your feet are disembodied.

My paws are only a half size bigger than yours.  Whatever size I got
fits me fine, so you should have no problem.  With the socks, anyway.

Thanks.  I see that Campmor carries these and I live near their retail
outlet - I'll head over and see if they've got something that would work
for me.  Some of the socks on the company web site say they're part
wool, but others don't seem to be.

Thanks again.

Steve - not much help to you - I bought them here at the
local Saucony outlet in Israel...I tried looking on the
Saucony website - couldn't see anything in the US...
