Favorite Non-Running Socks? (Read 52 times)

    Debated on putting this in "Gears and Wears," but it probably belongs here.


    Getting to be about time to replace some of my more "ventilated" casual, white, low-cut socks.  So, I made the trip to "Journeys" in the mall, which is where, believe it or not, I'd found the ones I liked best.  This was many years ago (they weren't lying when they said they were well-made), and apparently in the interim, they've stopped carrying that type of sock.


    So, does anyone have any particular brand or store that produces your favorite sock?

    Feeling the growl again

      My general wear and running socks are generic Wal-Mart socks. I wear better ones for races.  works for me.

      If you ask

        DH loves socks from LLBean.   They, too, last for years.

          Socks?  When not running??  Confused


          Running is stupid

            wigwam, experia or wright socks.    smartwool phd are also very nice.  sorry I work at REI so had to do plug.  wigwams are actually my favorite either synthetic or the ones with low % of merino wool.


            around home working in yard still use cotton (boo, boo, cotton is bad) but only because have a drawer full of them when wife used to buy the 8-10 pks at costco.   for running/hiking its either synthetic or merino wool.
