    Dear Toots,

    They fit amd work for you? Your shoes with your feet in them don't repel friends and attract dogs?

    Then you have just worn out your socks. Cry a tiny tear and buy as many as you care to afford.

    I like and prefer defeet wooleater crews. Clearly your mileage has varied.

    Cheers,

    Will

    Inspired somewhat, I bought a bunch of different merino socks from REI and tried the first pair today - beautiful. They're Icebreakers.

    REI had REI branded wool socks that were my favorite. They are thin, never fall down but not tight fitting. Sadly they don't have them anymore and mine are all wearing out. The replacements they have are OK but not as good.

    Cycling Sox: I haven’t found anything better than defeet. Then again I haven’t really tried. Most of the novelty brands are made by them so I just go direct. I have 8+ year old woolie boolies.
    Running: I recent started some running and find that smartwool phd make the experience much more enjoyable. Smartwools quality varies but these are worth it
    Daily: Whatever’s clean, but I like darn tough if I can afford em.

    I used to be Defeet only but no longer! I like these GripGrab Lightweight SL socks, well made, good height and a great price.

    This made me do a happy dance, especially on the heels (yuk yuk) of my wife giving me grief for wearing socks with holes all over.
