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.
