I previously owned Bridgedale socks which lasted me 8 years and still are going strong.......I always purchase the same ones (design) so I can loose a sock or two and still mix pairs and they all match. I just purchased this week 7 pairs of these socks and would like more. Come on guys stock some more of these socks!. They wear exceptionally well, are very comfortable and hold up for years even under daily use. These socks are the best investment. Thanks for stocking this brand. Bridgedale is the only way to go in my view and Backcountry is very good reputable place that ships quickly and accurately what you order. Many thanks to all of you!
