Summary

Great product, but short-term life. The socks will be warm and comfortable, but only for about one season.

Pros

  • Warm
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Wears out easily

I love these socks. They are comfy and warm (especially during the harsh Minnesota winters). I've been buying pairs of these for years, but that's just the problem—two pairs only last one season before the bottom wears out below the toes and heel.

Lovely socks, just wish they were more durable.

Summary

Very versatile either in a hiking boot or in a dress shoe. Can hand wash without damaging sock. Limited odor retention.

Pros

  • Multiple sizes for a good fit
  • Thin thickness with good heat retention

Cons

  • Not for extreme cold

I have had two pairs for 2.5 years now. One in grey and one in the same pattern pictured here. I do not wear them daily, but I have worn them dozens of times in a variety of activities. I have worn a pair in Torres Del Paine over a five-day period of time alternating the two pair. No holes or tears yet.
