These socks are without a doubt the best!! I had tried thorlos socks, some fruit of the loom ones from walmart that are SUPPOSED to be reinforced for work, but do not do anything for me, another brand that i forgot the name of that did work pretty good for steel toe shoes, but nothing compares to these! I can't smell, but usually at the end of the day @ work, ( I work in retail standing up ALL DAY; my feet are killing me afterward! ) I can just feeeel how sweaty, stuffy, & I'm sure smelly my feet are...my wife won't even let me put my feet up on the ottoman without washing my feet first!! Glad I can't smell. Anyways, with these socks, my feet doesn't feel tired or smelly! ( No complaints from the wife! ) I bought 3 pairs of the Smartwool on the job heavy crew socks just to try it first, ( they're kinda pricey) taking a chance that these might do the job, & it does!! So now I'm gonna buy a bunch of em' to replace all of my socks in my sock drawer!! I hope this review helps someone else that has the same problem as I do!
