Where can I find these athletic ankle socks?

**This is the sock**

My Google-fu isn't working. I bought them a few years ago, but don't remember where. There's a blue "P" logo on the toe, with a breathable mesh top with a tighter band around the middle, and they're not too tight around the ankle. I love them.

Do you know this brand?
Do you know where I could buy similar socks?

I think that logo is Prospirit but I can't remember who sells them. Wal-Mart maybe?

I bought athletic ankle socks, possibly similar, at a New Balance store.

My girlfriend wears them and I sometimes see that little blue P at Ross when I'm getting socks for myself.

I have socks like that and I'm fairly sure they came from Target.

If it helps, I believe the snug band around the middle is often marketed as "arch support".

I think that these are the socks (look at second and third images). I'm pretty sure I've picked them up at Ross or Marshall's.

I think workerant is right that it's the Prospirit logo. Here's some similar socks on eBay.

Like bizzyb I have socks like that from Target but not identical, just in case you give up and want to try some other brand. Mine are these by Champion.

The breathable mesh snug band around the middle has become pretty standard in the athletic sock arena. I have some Champions, some Brooks and some Thorlos that are all like this and I've acquired them from Costco up to specialty running shops. Basically, you shouldn't have any trouble replacing these socks from just about anywhere that sells socks and being pleased.
