After 20 months of use

I originally bought these socks in April 2014 and regularly used them for hiking (with and without loads) and for snowshoeing on warmer winter days. They do an admirable job with both heat regulation and with moisture wicking. I also found that they fit true to size and are comfortable. If it makes any difference to the reader, these socks were used exclusively in Lowa boots. But by October 2015, I started to have to begin to throw them out because I had worn through the heels. And by December 2015, of the five pairs that I'd originally bought, I was down to a single sock without the heel gone (but very thin). A year and a half seems to be pretty great for a sock to last, but I have similar socks from other manufacturers that have lasted much longer. So four stars instead of five.
