I've used these socks for years as work and casual-wear socks. They've always been comfortable whatever the weather. Nothing lasts forever, so I'm glad to be able to replace my worn pairs at a good price. No doubt they'll work just as well as the old ones.

Got a great deal on these socks, but they had more noticeable blemishes than I generally expect even on something clearly sold as 2nds. On a few socks, the stitching by the heel was irregular enough that I'm worried about it reducing the longevity. They are all stamped "IRREGULARS" in large font on the sides, rather than the typical mark that appears only on the price tag.

I only wear smart wool socks. I have purchased from Sierra Trading post over the years. I have recieved numerous pairs. I try to buy 10 pair at a time. My most recent purchase was awful. 1/2 of the "seconds" had dime sized holes which meant they are worthless. So for what I paid I got 5 pairs of socks. I will not buy seconds from Sierra Trading Post.
They are unused. Seconds are items that have minor cosmetic blemishes or irregulars which do not affect the fit, performance, or longevity of the item. Label is usually clipped by the manufacturer. A small flaw means big savings.
