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.
Let me start by adding to the scores of enthusiastic reviews of how great your socks are. They truly are a superior product, unmatched by any other sock on the market. This merit is earned not only because of the exceptional quality and comfort, but because of the immense difference in effectiveness that Sockwell compression socks provide over all competitors. At a younger age I would never have thought that a sock could have such a huge impact on my quality of life. I have read the reviews from runners, travelers, and other athletically inclined users, and share in their passion for the relief you have provided with your remarkable products. Living in western Montana, at the age of 34, I still live a highly active lifestyle both at work and in my free time, and have been able to do so because of your commitment to excellence.
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.
Just wanted you to know how much I love your socks...(I) find them to be a real value. They feel wonderful, wash well, keep their shape and I also like the different colors and styles. Just ordered 10 more pair for my daughter and daughter-in-law. I also just ordered some for my husband--hope he likes them as much as I do. Thank you so much for a great product made in the USA.
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!
Goodhew socks are...the first socks I've ever put on my feet that seem to massage and support them like nothing I've placed on my feet before. I think the rest of my body is a little jealous as it has started having little pains ever since my feet became that comfortable.
