The only socks I buy to wear for work. I have been using them for the last 8 years and they are the only steel toe socks I will buy.
While they are made to be thicker with more cushioning, they aren't hotter than thinner hiking socks i have. I have already worn these while felling 2 trees and trimming others.
These are the only socks that my husband will wear. He has plantar fasciitis and needs the extra cushioning. He's been wearing them for a few years and won't even talk about wearing any other sock.
I have been buying these socks for about ten years now and wear them daily with my Carolina steel-toe boots and they are the best, extremely comfortable and last on an average of two years.
I wear these with steel-toe shoes at work. I am on my feet every day and these help tremendously with foot comfort.
