Stinky Feet Gone Forever

Posted On December 10, 2012 at 11:35 am by / No Comments

You’re not going to believe this. It’s impossible, right? I’ve had a pair of Dahlgren Alpaca socks for almost two years now that was given to me by a product representative. For much of that time, I wore them everyday and would go weeks without washing them, and they would not stink.

I can’t tell you why. Often, I do wear the socks with sandals, yeh, I know, it’s a fashion faux-pas. But not always. The bottoms are wearing-out after wearing them for at least three hundred days, could be more like five-hundred days.

A side benefit is that these socks are super warm. It’s comfortable being socking-foot at times when other poly/wool-blend socks would not have the thermal characteristics.

I do have a pair of wool Pearl Izumi socks that have great thermal qualities, probably better than the Dahlgren’s but I have to wash them more often. I run and cycle in the Pearls.

And last about the Dalhgren Socks. They come in great colors and patterns, especially for women. A man’s medium size will work in a women’s large sock, pretty obvious, so guys, take advantage of the cool colors and get away from boring red, black, grey, and blue.
