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.
