Be aware of the intentionally unnoticeable "2nds" that leads the description for these socks on Sierra Trading Post's website. That is important because these are not retail grade socks. These are irregulars which the manufacturer deemed unsuitable for retail sale.

Normally I wouldn't care too much because the imperfections are usually too minor to be a concern. HOWEVER, every one of these Smartwool "2nds" socks comes with a HUGE "IRREGULARS" stamp on the side of the sock, surrounded by a box. This stamp is intentionally BOLD by Smartwool, but Sierra Trading Post does not state anywhere in their description that these socks have this obnoxious stamp on them. The stamp is in fact 2.5" x .5"in size and VERY NOTICEABLE.

If you will never take off your shoes in front of others, then no worries. If you do ever plan to wear these socks with no shoes in front of others, they will definitely see this label.
