THE BEST Boot Socks for Railroaders– Winter Weather, 87%-Wool
Sweet Daisy mother of cream cheese! These socks are the just about the greatest thing ever. If you get cold feet – and here in New England we all do – these babies will keep your tootsies hotter than two shots of ‘shine on a Bangor Saturday night. Just a Jim Dandy set of THICK wool socks. 87% wool at that! Even damp and sweaty these socks will retain over 80% of their insulating value because that is just the way wool works. Mother natures natural cold weather wonder – you ever see a sheep shiver? Not unless it has a nervous condition! I love these socks and I think you will too. A little pricey but worth every last penny.
Incredibly comfortable but not as durable as I expected.
These socks ended up lasting about 2 years with regular indoor wear. I never used them with any shoes and boots. Both socks now have inch wide holes near the soles. 20 bucks for two year lifespan of socks isn’t a ripoff but considering that I wasn’t too rough with them, its a bit disappointing that I’ll have to buy new ones. Next I’ll try out “Darn Tough” socks since those have a lifetime warranty.
Great socks for winter camping
I wore these socks in the U.P. of Michigan camping in January. The high temperature was 1 degree and the low at night was 15 below. I couldn’t ask for a warmer or more comfortable sock. I wear a size 14 boot and the XL size socks fit great. These socks get a bit too warm for me if I wear them with my boots all day, so they are used to keep my feet warm in the tent and around camp. They are quite thick…my Merrell boots still fit, but my house slippers will not fit if I wear these socks.
The End to Cold Feet!
I finally got fed up with having cold feet in the Winter. The athletic socks that I wore for the past several years just didn’t cut it any more. Those socks wore out at the heel quickly. I saw the stellar reviews for the Carhartt Artic Wool Boot socks and although expensive, I decided to give them a try. Best $20 I’ve ever spent. I’ve had these socks two months now and my feet have been super comfortable and toasty. My shoe size is 10-1/2 D to size 11, and the XL size fits perfectly. I highly recommend these socks, and I plan on reordering them, I-F they ever wear out. Five stars!
Great, but took too long to get here.
I ordered these socks 2 weeks before Christmas and they ended up taking a month to get here. I wondered if they had to raise the sheep, sheer them, make the yarn, knit the socks, and THEN ship them to me !!! My husband fishes off the coast of California and although he hasn’t worn them yet (he would have if they had arrived on time!!) they will be great to keep his feet warm inside his fishing boots. I’m docking off 1 star because 1 month to receive a pair of socks is ridiculous. I would have gone to a store instead had I known.
Most comfy pair of socks I own by far!
I just LOVE these socks. Having recently moved to New England from San Diego, my wardrobe wasn’t exactly screaming single digit weather. I stocked up on a few things from Amazon of course and some local stores. When I found my feet still getting a bit cold even with my new thick socks, I went a looking for some heavy duty warmth and found these Carhartt socks. Words like Arctic, Wool and Heavy gave me the impression that I could walk in the snow with just these socks alone and my feet would stay warm! Of course, I didn’t do that.. I’m from San Diego dude, but I’m not stoopid! Sand and snow are two different things.
Makes your feet sweat
I bought these socks based off of other reviews. Yes they will keep your feet warm even in tennis shoes with it 10 degrees Farenheit outside but they will also make your feet sweat as there is no air flow at all. If that’s a price you are willing to pay for warm feet like I am, then these are pretty decent socks albeit, very pricey just for 1 pair.
