Wool, always wool. Unless I'm going suit-up at work, then my proper shoes all demand thinner socks. But the norwegian army green wool socks are perfect for spring, summer and fall. The white, thicker ones, for winter.

True that, I just never got around to it, have like 50 pairs of useless polyester low-socks that I use :) Luckily I'm a denim + alden guy 80-85% of the time at work. so I get to use wool :D

They feel pretty great . . . nice and soft.  They're a lot thinner than I expected, which is actually nice.  They have a lot of stretch in them so I'm pretty sure they're good up to about a size 11-12.  Even though they are a bit on the thin side they can be surprisingly warm.  So overall, yes, they're incredible.

Tilley socks are where my feet wanna be.. Just right with the wool... They grip snug at your instep. And they are tough as nails..

Can anyone point me at those tabi(?) socks that have a separate toe (but big enough for a sasquatch foot?).

Ta much

isn't "worth" all subjective? not a fair question from my lowly perch.  it's just like folks saying, oh you don't like this or that so you are a hater.  no not a hater, just don't like the item & willing to say it  >:(

in any event that is my sort of sock rant.  oh jestre, them socks are bright as all heck.  when they peck out from under your jeans folks must be blown away & ask if you have a full santa suit under there.

I am just thinking maybe I am missing something that's all as I don't know the brand at all and can't find much on them. I fully understand something is worth as much as one is willing to pay for it. I pay a lot for what people consider junk.

Was a honest question no sarcasm involved
