Wigwam socks have for years been a great balance between comfort and functionality. They wick away moisture really well, and they're comfortable to wear. They're the sort of socks you'll totally forget you're wearing, and you won't mind either because they're very comfortable. They're made with quality materials and craftsmanship, and after a few washes they still retain their shape well...much better than thin dress or athletic socks ever could. The gray color is a nice heathered look, but because they disappear under your boots and jeans, even if you don't like the color there's no problem. If you're looking for some well-priced boot socks that are both comfortable and will wick away sweat, these will do the job.
