Model: Argyle Tall Boot Socks
Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I purchased these socks through Dover Saddlery for approximately $8.00 since I was sick and tired of wearing out nylons and having to use baby powder!
Likes: These socks are very breathable, so they don't get all sticky and nasty after a hard ride. The soles are extra padded, so it provides a little bit of extra cushion within the shoe. I also like the height on these -- they're tall enough so that they actually allow the boots to slide on, rather than other "tall socks" which bunch up and get caught on the end of the breeches. I also really liked both the argyle pattern and the color options!
Dislikes: Shortly after purchasing these socks, a teeny tiny hole appeared in the toe -- however, I have three pairs now and it's only ever happened to one sock, so it may just have been a fluke...
Quality: They are very well-made socks, in my opinion. I've found it hard to find tall boot socks that actually do the job as well as these.
Summary: While the $8 price tag may seem a little high for just a pair of socks, it's well worth it because of the all-around comfort and convenience they provide.
Usefulness Rating: 2.4 out of 5.
