I am a diehard SmartWool fan but I wanted to be fair and try other brands, too. As I needed different colors, and wanted to stay in a price range, I decided to order two different colors of the Wigwam socks and one knee sock of my faved SmartWool.
The first to arrive were the Wigwams and I immediately put them on. The first thing I noticed is that I didn't have anything to comment on at all. No oohs and ahhhs; nothing to 'write home about'. They're socks. So, I kind of wondered why the high price then?
I think I would have been just as happy buying ANY sock from the local department store. I just simply had the "oh well" feeling of resignation; the "well, I bought 'em, I will just like them" feeling.
THEN this morning, my SMARTWOOL knee sock arrived..WOW!!!! It's a whole different ballgame!! I couldn't wait to put them on. I mean I was actually excited. Immediately you feel wonderful. Immediately your feet feel pampered, hugged and given great luxurious comfort. And as I pulled it up my calves, even my calves went "ahhhhh". THIS is the difference. THIS is why the price; why the ratings; why the diehard fans like myself. THIS is why last year I gifted three pair of SmartWool socks. And THIS is why I removed ALL my socks from my drawers and bagged them for Goodwill because I don't even wear them anymore.
I always ask myself which pair is my favorite SmartWool sock? Well, none of them - because they ALL are!
