My wife loves comfortable socks so I am always in the market for a good pair. These are as comfortable as her smartwools but they are a lot more durable. She will wear through the toes and heels quickly on every brand but Fox river. A normal pair lasts her about 3-4 months but these are going strong after 6. The color of these socks also do no fade so they look new every time you wash them.
I like the spandex compression zones but these socks are far too thick for my personal taste. They may be right on the money for some, but I guess I just need to stick to lightweight socks from now on.
