My daughter survived boot camp, her feet just barely. When she was home on leave we went shoe and sock shopping. She returned to TX with a few pairs of coyote brown defender. Now I am sending her more. We will be replacing all of the other "recommended brand" socks with these. That they are available in acceptable colors is also a big deal.
My husband and myself love these socks for their warmth and cushioning.
I have a number of issues with my feet and these socks were comfortable; they made the problems less an issue.
Delivers on the technology description for keeping dry and comfortable in most any endeavor. Really impressive. So much reduced risk to critical blister-prone areas by keeping dry. Never got wet in any situation where they then needed to dry. Highly recommended technical sock.
I need extra padding for the balls of my feet, inserts don’t often work well or they shift. The sock give me the extra cushion I need to spend more time doing!
