now then, now then guyz n galz

I always wear woolen socks - all through the year (just like Stever?)

I think these are about the best I've ever had for boots  - very comfy, very toasty

but I really like the thorlo sport sock for general casual, and smartwool sock for my hillwaking

I was just thinking how there should be a sock thread on the forum, and look what just popped up.  I agree that gold toe makes a great affordable sock but I find the durability of them not so great.  IMO Smartwool makes the best socks you can put your feet into, Keen makes a very close second.  Both offer different weights for whatever climate/season you find yourself in.

I wear Smartwool pretty much exclusively. They're expensive, but they last and feel awesome.

sounds like we're all on the smartwool bus

you need to try out the Scott Nichols tho' - the ones in the pic are merino and alpaca mix, not to heavy - look great with trickers/grenson/church's stylee

nothing special but i like American Apparel socks.  i usually go with the knee length ones.    in my experience AA socks don't become quitters as quickly as others.   they arent very thick though.

I've been wearing the Smartwool ones as well, excellent quality.  I like Bridgedale socks as well, comfy and they wear well.

J, hahaha, yeah those were a little out of my price range. I would love to see some macro shots for texture reference whenever they come.
