Hear what others have to say about Sockwell
I am someone who can hardly sit still for more than the length of a movie. I have had some circulation issues and a neuroma in my right foot. However, after discovering Sockwell socks, my active life can continue like normal. I stand on concrete for work all day. I workout. I hike and explore trails. The most important thing for me, though, is my running. I need my feet to be taken care of. I've tried other socks and quickly gave them away. Nothing feels as soft and as comfortable as Sockwell socks. They also provide compression and allows circulation to my feet, which no other sock has done for me as well as Sockwell. I love what they do. Plus, it's a perk Sockwell's colors and patterns are so dang cute!
...I must say these Goodhew are the best! I have beat them hard and they are holding up. I sent a few pairs to be tested at the military test facility. The 50 wash cycle testing results were a pass. For me, they don't fall down!
There are certain things in life that you just cannot imagine appreciating until you actually experience them. Socks would have never come to mind. How much improvement can be made over the standard cotton sock? Quite a bit, it turns out. My first pair of Goodhew socks didn't see any action for weeks after receiving them as a gift. My thought was, "Socks are socks, and I'm not buying into some sales pitch about the evils of cotton socks." Once I tried them, though, the difference in the quality of craftsmanship and quality of materials was immediately apparent. You can't put on a pair of Goodhew without being struck by the sense that feels something like "this is what a sock SHOULD be." My suggestion is this....give one pair of Goodhew a shot. That's all it will take. You can't NOT recognize them as a truly superior product.
I spent 4 days trekking in Peru, high in the Andes and into the edge of the Amazon Jungle. Of all the gear I hand-picked for this 36 mile trip with 7000 total feet of elevation gain and 5000 total feet of elevation loss, I was most impressed with my Taos Crew socks. I wore the same pair for the first 3 days of the hike...we hiked nearly 30 hours, often straight uphill or on unnerving downhill grades. Through all of that, my feet were kept warm at a misty/rainy 14,000 feet, and cool at a jungle-humid 8,500 feet. Prone to blisters, I had none on this trip...for that I'm incredibly thankful.
Tough Mudder took place in Georgia on Saturday March 12th www.toughmudder.com It was a demanding 12.4 mile obstacle course race based off of the training exercises of the British Special Forces. It was well beyond a traditional mud run. 5 minutes into the race we were neck deep in freezing cold water and still had 12 miles to go. Some of the other obstacle highlights were carrying with a teammate a 8ft log for a 1/4 mile up and down hills on a wooded trail, diving 15ft off a plank into a pond then swimming 15 yards, and running 10 yards through mud while live electrical wires dangle in front of you. I (wore) my Black Goodhew Sport Footie socks. The best compliment I can pay Goodhew is that not once during the race did I notice my feet. I was sore on all other parts of my body but not my feet. I have no doubt the decision I made to wear these Goodhew socks helped me get to the finish line of Tough Mudder. Not only that but the socks withstood the pounding they took during Tough Mudder and after washing are back in my drawer ready for more wear!
These are great boxers. I've been more of a boxer-brief guy over the past 10 years or so, but these boxers make me want to replace my entire underwear drawer.The cotton feels like silk and they have a great sort of retro look.Great item, I'll be sure to buy more!
