I read lots of reviews about how warm these socks are. I live in the low desert near Phoenix, AZ where summer temperatures range from a comfortable 100 degrees to a bit toasty 120 degrees. Pavement temperature can easily hit 140. I wear net topped shoes (New Balance 1540) to get maximum ventilation in an office casual environment. We usually get a couple frosts a year if it is a hard winter. So, warm is not what I was looking for.

Still, I hear lots of survivalists insist on having wool socks available during bad situations. I wanted some wool for a Get Home bag and my Bug Out bag. So, I tried these thick crew length socks for daily wear in the Sonoran Desert.

I am impressed wool allows nice ventilation. Maybe because of evaporative cooling, these socks are no warmer than the Thorlos socks I have been wearing. They are thick enough to feel cushioned. I also wear Under Armor Heat Gear shirts that are best air dried. Wash and air drying wool socks won't be a problem. Only surprise is the black socks are more light gray. The picture is accurate.

My wife feels empowered to throw out my clothes when she decides they are too old. My socks have been slowly disappearing. Looks like I will be converting my sock drawer to these wool socks.

People Socks replied within hours to my prepurchase questions. Shipping was fast. Thanks for a nice first purchase experience.

Second order -

I'm a value conscious buyer. Quality and durability are more important than lowest price. Cheap stuff usually costs lots more than quality stuff, especially when you have to throw out the cheap stuff you bought and buy the quality stuff anyway. But, it is nice to find quality durable wool socks that are inexpensive too. Worth my hard earned dollars.

I've been buying high end wool socks at close to $20 a pair for the last five years and after buying these socks my life has been changed! The same quality as the $20 per pair but for four pairs! Great deal, great quick shipment and who doesn't love to help a start up? My first four pairs (one order) was so great that I'm ordering a bunch more for the family for christmas (and myself!).

The price & the comfort = awesome.
I had several pairs shipped to me in Afghanistan, and I couldn't be happier.
Every Service Members knows how crappy the basic standard issue boot sock is... get these!

Thick, warm, and comfy socks. Exactly what I needed for my first real winter in 11 years (California spoiled me).

I wear US size 9.5 and these are a great fit. Thick and comfortable. Wool is way better than cotton especially for hiking or being on your feet all day. Just got back from Yosemite where I used these socks exclusively and had almost no blisters hiking the Yosemite Falls trail and Half Dome.

Great price, less than the gold toe I replaced. Very thick and cushiony. I will wear nothing but merino wool socks.

Great socks. I spent a couple of years looking for a replacement for my old Filson Grey socks. (Filson had a perfect product, and then they got cute, and improved them so much, they are unwearable.) These fit the bill in every way. They are U.S. made (Thank you!) and are super warm and comfortable. I ordered four pairs to give them a try, and after more than a year of tough love, they are still in great shape. I just ordered an additional 8 pairs to round out my sock drawer. Summer or Winter, these socks keep my feet warm and dry. If they came in over-the-calf, I would buy a dozen more pairs.

First of all, let me just say that these are some very nice socks for the price. SmartWool socks are a little bit nicer but are so expensive I just can't justify buying them. These People Socks are comfy, warm, thick, soft, and great at keeping feet dry and sweat-free.

I only have one slight annoyance. I opted to buy the mixed variety pack which is a few dollars more expensive because I didn't want to just have 4 pairs of the exact same sock. When they came I thought that there was a mistake and they accidentally sent me 4 identical socks when in reality the brown, navy blue, and heather black socks all look pretty much the same.

Just buy the heather black 4-pack. They go with any shoe and the socks are great. Don't spend more for variety.

I'm loving these socks.

When I deployed to Afghanistan, a buddy recommended I stock up on wool socks. After the first time slipping my feet into a pair, I was sold - never going back to cotton/poly blends. I decided to buy a bunch of pairs of wool socks. Learned they don't come cheap. So, I shopped around quite a bit to find the best bang for the buck - when you're a single dude in the military, you're not exactly rolling in the dough.

My research discovered the best wool socks out there (IMO) were the Redhead brand that Bass Pro shop sells - $10-15 for a pair. And that's where I've always gone to buy wool socks. But it's out of the way - 20 miles away.

So, since Ive pretty much sold my soul to the Amazon gods and purchase more and more of my goods via the Amazon app, I decided to take a look at what wool socks options were on here. Stumbled across these socks and was pleasantly surprised to see 4 pairs for so cheap. Naturally, I was skeptical. But then I realized this was one of those times being a Prime member really pays off. 66% off?!! Heck yes!

About these socks...
-They fit just right. A little tight on me (I don't skip leg day at the gym), but not uncomfortably so.
-They arrived promptly, minimal packaging - respect to the environment, y'all!
-They're made in Amer'ka! F ya!
