Yeah, and Smartwool midweight after a season is pretty thin. Gotta beat those socks in.

Darn Tough also have various thicknesses, and I think they fit/feel better than smartwool.

I was looking for “I use xyz socks and they work great”. Some of the other comments sounded like, hey maybe try this one brand.

I did go to public school though. I miss things.

I have been of the opinion for quite some time that Defeet Woolie Boolies are the finest socks in the history of existence.

Seriously though, they are great socks.

Excellent! I did order some wool/synthetic blend socks that are taking forever to arrive. These are now on my radar.

If someone would make some wool toe socks, that would be supa cool.
