mfw I realize my socks cost as much as my shoes


Yeah, for a couple weeks recently I was wearing CAD$35 thrift-store hiking boots (to be fair they were probably over $100 new) with CAD$50 merino socks.

My conclusion:

The socks *are* great. They’re remarkably comfortable especially compared to my lower-end wool socks, they’re well-built. They’re better than Walmart socks.

…but they’re not *fifty times* better than Walmart socks. And they cost fifty times as much.

I will be reserving them for hiking.
