As I see it, there are three tiers of socks: the ones you’re forced to wear when all others are dirty, the ones you don’t hate but aren’t first round picks, and the top-tier socks that go first in the drawer. Well these, my friends, are top-tier socks. I have bought more and more pairs over the years as my other wool socks start to wear out and have noticed that these are quickly becoming my go-to, year-round choice. These socks are easily the most versatile ones I own. I can wear them casually with my work shoes, use them on warmer day bike rides/runs, and put them through the ringer on chilly multi-day treks through rugged mountain terrain. Can’t recommend them enough!
