The sock all others will be judged by
It's really hard to go wrong with any Smartwool product. I own a few different socks of theirs, but this one is my favorite. From the moment you pull these out of the packaging you can tell that these are some seriously well made socks. The attention to detail is very noticeable from the "Feels Good" stitched around the top, to the fleecy lining inside. These socks keep my feet warm and comfortable all winter long. Anyone who questions paying nearly $20 a pair obviously doesn't own any of these. If you like your feet to stay warm in cold temps, these are a very worthwhile investment.
