Well sure shootin, these here wollen beauties live upter their name! Bought mah first pair in 2006, wore 'em skiin and trompin around Wiscow. Bought mahself a couple more pairs ta head up to Canada for mah first 10day packabackin trip, and I've still got all for pairs! I've taken this one red pair on every overnight excursion since then, I kint even imagine how menny miles they've been worn. I just love em. Sure nuff, these socks are dern tuff! They've not let any threads loose, they don't stink up yer pack like other brands and they're just so comfy.
