Ah, the noble sock. It’s kind of funny how something so small can make such a huge difference in our day-to-day comfort level. We take it for granted, but without men’s socks, our lives would be drastically different. Our footwear would be teeming with funk and our feet would be far, far less comfortable. Long hikes would be plagued by chafing and blisters. It would be total anarchy. Fortunately, we do have socks -- loads of them actually -- from great brands like SmartWool and Lorpen. Stock up now. You never know when a sockocalypse could occur and send us back to the Stone Age.
