    You never fully realize how bad your old worn out socks are until you put on a new pair.

    Speaking of socks. If you want to good sock to try, go with some Thorlo Light Hikers! Damn I love those socks! I ditched the tube socks after I found the Thorlos!

    I'm always amazed at hoe expensive socks and underwear cost. Even the generic stuff.

    Not in those colors but yes I do.
    Let’s take and drop heavy tools, and other things on your toes to get the feeling, then scrunch said toes into a normal sock.

    Besides purple socks are soo Donny Osmond.

    Well, it turned out to be a really good day, just as I had expected. I walked around to a lot of places and just enjoyed the socks.

    How many times has that actually happened? Are people avoiding you because you want them to use your nice pen?

    This thread is supposed to be about nice sock feelings.

    I hear you on the way a new pair of socks can make your day. Literally, gives you a spring in your step.

    I don't wear tube socks, haven't since I was a little kid with a matching color band(s) on them coordinated with my nylon shorts.

    I wear foot shaped socks, and when I bartended I'd wear a regular pair inside a cushioned pair. Long hours behind the bar with comfortable (non slip soles) shoes the socks would make a difference. I'd also change shoes and socks right after I got off work, and my feet sweat so much my toes would be pruned.

    Well, hybrid socks are where its at. Tube preamp with SS power section really can get a lot more sound out of your socks without being overly heavy or fragile.

    They still make tube socks?:eek: Must be some sort of retro fad.:rolleyes::lol: Once I tried FIT socks, I never looked back. You don't even know what nice socks feel like until you try FITs.

    WARNING: They are pricey, but you ain't gonna be wearing tube socks again.

    Full disclosure: My son-in-law's dad own a shoe store that sells them.
