Sock off 2011 Sock Durability.

Categories:Gear | Hiking Tech | PreTrail

Since we ( Dave, Bill, and I ) were unable to really to determine the durability of the socks in our single sock testing hikes I have been wearing both the Point6 and Thorlos socks on a rather regular basis. I have been wearing them to work, on vacation, and even around the house. After more than a dozen washes and many wearings both pairs are going strong. They look just like they did when I opened the boxes. I have been very impressed with both brands and it will make the final determination of a winner extremely hard. As far as the Injinji toe socks go I have honestly not worn them again. They were just not my cup of tea.

Have you tried any or all of these socks?  What did you like or dislike about these socks?
