Rapha socks

So, is indicating which sock goes on which foot a "refined high end feature"? Or is it just a bunch of dudes having a laugh at the expense of bike nerds with more money than brains? Do you increase drag if you put them on the wrong feet?
The conundrum of Rapha (not unlike Conan's riddle of steel), is that some how their ridiculously expensive cycling gear is cool and the equally exorbitant Assos is not.
Despite the excess stitching, these socks are recommened for their ability to shed the stink that often inhabits cycling gear. But they are not warm enough to go solo on cold days.
