Let’s Talk About Socks!
Do you have a favorite sock that you enjoy wearing while hiking and camping? Do you like to wear a specific sock with your hiking boots? SmartWool socks are my favorite socks by a long shot!
I discovered these wool socks about five years ago. I purchased my first pair at the Eddie Bauer Outlet when I was on the Eastern Shore of Maryland visiting my dad. The socks felt great! They offered extra support, especially around my arch. The pair I purchased back then finally needed to be replaced, so I added Smart Wool socks to my little Christmas list. My husband kindly obliged and headed to REI to buy me some new ones. This year, I received their PhD high performance socks. Made from Merino wool, they are made specifically for a woman’s foot and they feel just great. They have extra cushioning in the heel and on the ball of the foot. And, the wool keeps my feet really warm. Yes, they are quite pricey, but I figure I only have two feet, so they are worth it!
Do you have a favorite sock for when you are camping? A dry sock, of course, is best, but I’d love to hear your opinions on SOCKS in general.
