Best socks in the world
A quick update from here in NZ for you. I walked 1400 km in your socks before the first hole appeared – this was a small hole in the gap in the padding at the ball of the foot. I sewed this up and they did a further 800km before now being religated to camp socks.
Conversely on this trip I have also worn a set of smartwool PHD socks that lasted less than a month, a set of heavier duty ice breakers that lasted 8 (albeit very wet) days hiking through the Richmond range and only 14 days ago i purchased through lack of option another set of icebreaker low cut socks (very similar to Bridgedale) and they have already several large holes in them.
You guys really do make the best socks in the world.
Keep it up!
