2nds, barely perceptible blemishes. Underfoot cushion and enough length to wear with boots, SmartWool's Double Insignia socks make the perfect walking companions, and keep things fresh, cool and dry thanks to soft merino wool.

Needless to say, these socks are splendid. They fit well and look great. Rarely have I encountered a company which does a few things as well as SmartWool. Socks are always well made and very durable. Same goes for their layering tops and bottoms.

received these socks - washed and ready to go. In Michigan this time of year, are very comfortable. I am not sure if they are seconds but if so I cannot tell. At this time and with minimal use, I am very happy with these SmartWool socks

I wear Smartwool socks (well wool socks in general, but mostly Smartwool) for work. I have been wearing cotton for years and my feet just stink after a long day. Not with wool., SmartWool makes great design and these socks last so much longer than my cotton socks. It is painful sometimes paying for one pair of socks what I would pay for 3-6 pairs of cotton, but in truth the wool socks outlast the cotton anywhere from 6-10x longer. A pretty easy choice in my opinion.
Each pair is a somewhat different style. The Double Insignia socks are a middle weigh sock which is nice at times because my feet get really warm sometimes. And most importantly, they are comfortable; I never want to take them off.
Bottom line: If the price is the only thing keeping you from purchasing these socks, just buy them. You won't be disappointed.

Nice and cozy for winter walks! I prefer men's socks (I'm female) because they seem to be better quality, last longer, etc. though they are a little bulky around the toes like most men's socks tend to be. I guess women's toes are narrower? These were great, have washed well, and I hope to have them for many winters to come, so long as my husband doesn't steal them. Couldn't find the barely perceptible blemishes on my 4 pr. Recommended.
