5.0 out of 5 stars Socks upgrade, May 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been in the Army for a little over 8 years now. I am not infantry but I have had my share of field evironments. I am currently deployed in AFG and needed to get new socks due to the wear and tear (literally) of my old socks. I walk around in nothing but rocks and gravel and noticed the wear on my feet and my boots. I saw and purchased the FOX RIVER on Amazon to give them a try.

I tried a pair the next day and was surprised how thick they felt. They weren't heavy like wool, but you could feel the padding in it which was good. I'm 6 ft and about 250 so I was a little worried that the mid calve sock would run a little short but that wasn't the case. They had a real good elastic feel to it.

You can feel the difference moving around during the day. Also, in this weather my feet always get hot and sweaty but with these socks they mitigate that problem. I am a fan of gold bond baby powder and with these sock the combination really helps when you are moving around and in boots all day in hot weather.

I also bought a pair of under armor boots socks to see how they match up.. more to follow.

In summary, if you are wearing boots all day moving around pay a little extra for some good socks like these. Hopefully they can last through this deployment. If they make it, I will definately write an update on the return home!

Thanks for a helpful review. What is the size chart? Does this go by shoe size? I would be getting them for my husband, who is 6' and about a 9 or 9 1/2 shoe.
