Good for them, but I'm in the wrong business. I would love to sell a polished turn to those onion farmers and laugh all the way to the bank.
I agree. I also aim to ban all hunting and fishing. Spending that kind of money on guns and fishing rods just to kill animals is silly. Espescially when you can go to the grocery store and buy a perfectly good steak all on your own.

Ended up with these for boot: http://www.amazon.com/Asolo-TPS-520-...pr_product_top

I will most likely, after talking to a few people and some searching on the Google machine, will go with a few pairs of smartwool. I may stop at Bass pro and check out redhead also. Not leaving until the end of June so I have time to buy a couple pair and try them while working since I am on my feet 10-12 hours a day. Thanks for the feedback

I've always used thick wool socks when we go hiking/backpacking. I usually get the ones from the Columbia outlet at Birch Run when I am up that way. I have a few pairs of the blue wool Boy Scout socks that they sell at Dunhams too. They aren't as thick, but they work fine on the shorter/easier trails.

Nice boot. Make sure you give them many miles for break-in or you'll be crying when your feet are raw.

Keep in mind that the content of the socks matters more than the brand name. There are lots of nice ones out there.

I have a handful of pairs of Thorlo socks in light and insulated varieties. Always been happy with them.

I've had great luck with that brand.

I have good luck with Omniwool socks. Keep feet nice and dry. They are very durable too. Sam's Club usually carries a 3 pack for $15.00 when in season (Christmas). Not sure if they still have them this time of year.

I bought the boots now to have a couple month break in period. It does seem that any of the merino based socks get good reviews.
