Default Winter shopping .

Been shopping for some warm durable foot ware . I have all kinds of catalogs , REI , Campmor , Cabelas , Don Gleason , etc. . I found some socks , Wigwarm 40 below . Anybody ever tried these . I have always had trouble with foot ware .
There is not a sock or shoe I can not destroy . On my feet constantly .

Four years ago , I bought some insulated Danners and so far they have stood to all my abuse . Great boot ! Socks however , never had a pair that lasted more than one season .
I kill them , holes and such . The quest for the altimate sock ! Is there such a thing ? I am open for suggestions so feel free .

Wow.... I have the opposite. I chew through boots but my wigwams last forever...
Wigwams are the best socks I have...

An engineer I know wears one pair a day, and throws them away... That's his thing...
He claims since he doesn't drink or have any vices, his thing is to only wear a pair of socks once...
But I don't drink or have any vices either, and I wear a pair of socks until my girlfriend throws them away for me...
Guess I'm cheap?.......

That has nothing to do with being cheap , sensible is more like it . I wear socks till nothing is left . I've been wearing Wigwarms for decades and they are warm and comfy . I bought six pair two years ago and have nothing left . Time to
Re-up , six more pair at least .

Wool socks are the best.... In the tropics to the Middle East, I wear my wool socks with my boots...

Same here with the wool socks. Won't wear anything else hot or cold times of year.

Also, this is the only brand I buy.

Usually get them at REI too.
