Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dissapointed gifter from Minnesota on Tuesday, January 13, 2015
We purchased 3 pair of Smart Wool socks for our daughter as a gift. Sierra Trading had great on-line prices. I thought that the socks may have been overstock, therefore a better price. As it turned out, the socks were "irregulars". This would not have been so bad had it not been physically stamped on the socks themselves. They appear to look good, with no other obvious defects other than the stamp on the socks. We wish we had known they were factory seconds when we purchased them, especially since they were bought as a gift. I'm certain that the socks will perform as well as any other Smart Wool socks. Just be aware that there is a permanent stamp on the arch of the sock "IRREGULAR".
