Great comfy socks!

These are great socks. They are uniform in thickness and color throughout the whole sock, something that I like and look for. I am not a fan of socks with padded soles or thin uppers that stretch tight like nylons. I also don't like socks with patches of different colors... where the sole, heel or toe is an accented color. These have a nice speckled look, the grey looks great with slacks or jeans.

These socks are medium thickness, medium denisity. They're thick enough to be cozy without being hot, even in the southwest heat, but they're not bulky at all. They stretch quite easily so it doesn't feel like you're wearing nylons, but they're not so loose that they fall down either. Feels just right.

I have been searching for a replacement for the Wigwam smartwool socks I got from sierra about ten years ago (YES, those socks lasted ten years of daily use). These are as close as I have found so far, but the material feels like a less dense weave, so I suspect they'll be cooler but not as durable. Time will tell.
