2nds, barely perceptible blemishes. If your three wishes include staying warm, dry and reducing foot odor, then Lorpen's ski socks will grant that for you thanks to a blend of merino wool, PrimaLoft® and nylon.

I love these socks and am glad I bought 2 pairs. However, 1 of 4 socks I purchased had a major issue ( a 4 mm circumferential swatch where there is just one thread thick). I suspect this will result in an irreparable hole at some point. Otherwise the socks are awesome and I love wearing them outside and even to work under pants. Check carefully before wearing so that you can return if necessary.

I ordered 3 pairs of these socks to wear with tall rain boots. They're a little thick, but perfect for looser fitting water-proof boots like Wellingtons. Also, they extend up over your knees so they don't slip down while walking.

I've ordered lots of other "2nds" socks from STP before (albeit from other brand names) and have never had any trouble with them. These ones however had a hole the size of my index finger right where your lateral ankle bone would be, so they're pretty much unusable and it's not worth the hassle fo trying to send them back to the states. I will continue to order 2nds from other sock makers but not from Lorpen!
