If these are 2nds I don't know what the problem with them might be. I always buy my Smartwool here and have never found a problem with them. Smartwool socks are always worth the money and these are no different. I wear each pair of my smartwool once a week and they usually last me 3-5 years

Not sure why there are so m any good reviews on these socks. I got 2 pair yesterday. I knew I was getting seconds, but I wouldnt think the size would be what was irregular about them. These are a mens large, I wear a 10.5 shoe and these fit like a medium. The rear of the heal is under my heal and the ribbed area is right where my shoe rubs. Total waste of money as if I continue to wear these they will surely be worn out in no time in the heal or I'll end up with blisters.

I bought 10 pairs of these. They are described as "2nds". I compared them to the "1sts" Smartwool socks that I already had, and the only difference I could find was that some of them were slightly longer or shorter in the calf area. So what. For the price (I used an email discount coupon) they were less than 1/3 the price of "1sts". As long as I can get these from STP I'm never buying Smartwools anywhere else.
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.
