>Gears and Wears>CloudLine wool socks - good value?
I have a few pairs of SmartWool socks which I like for running but I also get ice cold feet in winter so I was looking for some wool socks for normal wear too. Obviously $15-18 per pair of socks is not a price I want to pay for socks to wear around the house. I came upon CloudLine socks today which they have a 30% off code valid until tomorrow and I found a 3-pack of wool running socks for $40. With the 30% off and free shipping, this comes to be $9 per pair which is a very reasonable price.
Anyone have CloudLine wool running socks and comments about how they compare to SmartWool?

I've worn out all my many SmartWool and Icebreaker (wool) socks. So, this deal is just too good to pass up. Going to give them a chance. Bought some Ultra thin running and Ultra-thin hiking boots.
(Do people buy a size-bigger running shoe for winter, just to have some "mid-weight" cushioned socks to run in?)
Thanks for the tip, AndyTN

I've had some Cloudlines. They're good socks! I often find great merino deals at Sierra Trading Post and Steep & Cheap, too.

Mine arrived yesterday. Took them out for a 16 and felt good. As long as these do not shrink, it will be a good investment.
(I don't own a dryer, and never use even warm water for washing, but I have a few non-Icebreaker/Smartwool socks that started okay, and ended up toddler sized)
Your money is better spent on Darn Tough.
I like mine so far. They feel like plush poly-blend socks more that wool so I commend the soft feel for almost 60% Merino wool. I will say they are a bit too large for me and I'm hoping they will shrink a bit so it will be nice to be able to dry them on low setting with normal laundry.
Any expericence with Stoic socks?
No experience with Stoic but I did buy some Cloudlines after reading the thread. They are very soft and thicker than almost all of my other socks. I like socks to be very thin for the most part but I am really enjoying longer runs with these socks (especially in the cooler weather) and the comfort of all that plushness. I'd buy them again for the price. Agree that they do run a little larger than my other socks.
