Pretty much your go-to Merino Wool sock, from the box to the obstacle course. Athletes dig on the attention to detail that keeps this thing in place and that it delivers comfort through all sorts of conditions with endless mileage to go.
Bought these right before the WVA Beast. Forgot to bring a long pair of socks with me, but really wanted a pair for the tyrolean traverse and the rope climb. These worked awesome! Kept them rolled down for most of the race, but pulled them up for the travese and climb. Kept me from getting rope burns like I've had happen in the past. Provided nice cushioning and no blisters even after the swim or mud. 15 miles right out of the package and these worked great. Would highly recommend!
