why the hell are massdrop advertising these in the newsletter if they're sold out? wtf?
I happened to see these Fitsok socks advertised here, and I though that I would comment, and start a discussion about them, and socks in general. I own, use, and test numerous types, (probably way too many), of Hiking/Backpacking/Every Day Use socks manufactured by Bridgedale, Cloudline, Darn Tough, Duluth Trading, Euro Sock, Falke, Farm to Feet, Fox River, Injini, Lorpen, Point 6, Redhead, (Cabela's/Bass Pro Shops Brand), Smartwool, Stego, Thorlo, Wigwam, Wrightsock. In my experience, and to the best of my knowledge, these are the most readily available sock brands in the U.S. that the vast majority of hikers/backpackers, or just every day sock wearers will probably use when out on a trail, or in their daily life, with dress, or formal type of socks excluded. There are a few other brands that I have not yet tried, or tested like fairly well known Icebreaker, and some more obscure or lesser known brands like Balega, Defeet, (Sorry Andrew), Drymax, Stance, and Swiftwick. I did once purchase a pair of Icebreaker hiking socks from Sierra Trading Post, (which were seconds), but I returned them due to defects that I would not accept. By the way, and I digress, I do own, and have used various Icebreaker, and Smartwool, Merino Wool, and Merino Wool, combination fiber (Nylon, Tencel), baselayers and shirts that are very good quality. Additionally...I have never tried or tested the Fitsok brand, showcased here by Drop. I think that here are three (3) things that can drive you crazy, or at least irritate you you to varying degrees while out walking, hiking, or backpacking, which are 1) Using an ill fitting, overloaded, or uncomfortable backpack, 2) wearing ill fitting, or uncomfortable boots, or shoes, 3) wearing ill fitting, or uncomfortable socks! Obviously blisters can ruin your day, and socks that bunch up in your boots, or that cause your feet to burn, or that droop around your ankles, can be very irritating and uncomfortable. In my experience, the majority of high quality hiking/backpacking socks like the Bridgedale, Darn Tough, Farm to Feet, Smartwool, and Wigwam brands are comprised of high percentages (50% to 70%) of Merino Wool, combined with lower percentages (25% to 45%) of Nylon, with a small percentage of Lycra for elasticity. Of course the stitching protocol, and assembly of the sock is extermely important too! In addition to Merino Wool, Nylon, and Lycra, socks are also made with many different combinations of fibers, yarns, and materials, such as Acrylic, Alpaca, Coolmax, Copper Polyester, Cotton, Elastane, Olefin, Polyester, Polypropylene, Rayon, Silk, Spectra, Tencel, and Yak Wool, with some manufacturers using proprietary, or patented variations, versions, and combinations, of these fibers, and materials, such as Cupron, Cutec Copper, Drirelease, Drystat Silver, Microsupreme Acrylic, Nanoglide, Silvadur, and X20 Acrylic, just to name a few. Additionally, some socks have treatments like Microban to eliminate bacterial growth, and odor, (it should be noted that Merino Wool socks are naturally anti bacterial, and anti microbial, and Copper Polyester Yarn socks are extremely effective at preventing bacterial, microbial growth, and odor, as are socks impregnated with Silver or Silver yarn), and Insect Shield which will kill ticks, and other insects upon contact with the treated sock surface. I have performed a little research on these Fitsok socks, and they seem to fit into the parameters that I referenced, as they are comprised of 58% merino wool, 40% nylon, and 2% Lycra, so in theory they should probably perform well, and they do come with a Lifetime Warranty. Fitsok states on their website that they use a proprietary yarn, and Hydrotec Polyester in their CF2 socks as follows: "Utilizing the high performance capabilities of Shadow Yarn, the CF2 transports moisture and heat from areas of highest to lowest concentration for a comfortable, thermally balanced sock." "Microban®, an antimicrobial product, fights the growth of odor causing bacteria to keep socks cleaner and fresher." Fitsok also states that they use ISW Wool, and Flowtek channels in their CF2 Limited Edition socks as follows: "These CF2 Limited Edition (socks) are constructed with ISW Wool for superior wicking performance." "Mesh venting and Flowtek™ channels move moisture and heat away from the foot, while a Max Arch support keeps the socks snug." Sounds like they may have some good sock technology! The language of their warranty found on their website is as follows: We stand by our product and like to keep things simple. If you are not happy with our socks, they don’t fit correctly or over time they develop a hole or a defect just reach out to us at orders@fitsok.com with a picture of the defect and we will send you a replacement pair. Simple right? So it seems that with their warranty there would be little or no risk to purchase these socks here on Drop, on great sites like GoBros, or on the Fitsok website. By the way, Lifetime Warranties can be a little deceiving, as only Darn Tough, Farm to Feet, Icebreaker, or Wrightsock, and maybe one or two other companies have a similar no conditions, or questions asked warranties to the best of my knowledge, and the last time I checked. Some companies like Wigwam have (Conditional) Lifetime Warranties on their socks, which state that they will replace your socks in the event of a manufacturer's defect. Good Luck proving that your socks were defective! In all fairness to Wigwam, they do make very high quality socks, and I have never had a problem with them, however it is nice to know that if you wear a hole in your sock, you can get that sock replaced by Fitsok, and the other companies that I mentioned above, and your only cost should be the postage to return the sock. Some like Defeet have no warranty that I could find, and if memory serves Thorlo and Fox River also have minimal warranties. Speaking of Fitsok, It appears that they are selling a 3 pack of socks here, but are now apparently out of stock on Drop. If you want to try them it does appear that GoBros has the Fitsok CF2 sock in stock, with free shipping, no minimum, and the Fitsok website also has seems to have various socks available. Hopefully my little sock dialogue proves educational, and informative, and helps somebody determine which socks to best select for their needs.

I'm guessing these are the last socks we will see on here. I've been too long only to see each size sell out without any being restocked. rip fitsok+massdrop marriage.

Need the low cut socks back!!! I'm doing the great COVID sock cleanout and trashing all non-matching socks. My push is for only ONE brand of each type of sock in my 4 person home. Life's hard enough right now. I'm done sorting 100 random socks.

Well, I pay $10 for a pack of six extra thick merino wool socks here, so I don't know why these are $20 apart from branding maybe.

Nothing makes one look more like a German guy on holiday in Miami, than wearing dark socks with athletic shoes (even more so with sandals ;- )

Warning: these are completely different socks than the ones that were sold in the same drop in 2018.
