Of my last sierra trading post sock haul, these are the best that I got. They're a good thickness for both daily wear and working out. A couple of washes helps the toe box lose it's seamed shape. A couple features to note: The sizing for these is a little larger than standard US sock sizes (where a Small is something like a 4-6.5) -- for Icebreakers socks, a Small is a 5.5-7. So my 5.5 sized foot is right at the lower end of the small range, meaning that I didn't really get the fit that I had hoped for. Another minus: These socks don't seem to breathe as well as other brands of merino socks, so my feet get sweaty enough to notice after a couple hours.

These are items with barely perceptible blemishes or slight irregularities that do not affect fit, performance or longevity such as an error in the stitching or a slight fading of the productâ€™s color. Labels on 2nds are usually clipped or marked by the manufacturer, and 2nds are often offered at lower prices.
