    Woolie Boolie sock lifespan?

    While I LOVE these socks and wear the hell out of them, they are the only socks I've ever had to get a hole in them (two different pairs) before replacing the pair for some other reason (stretched out, sick of the style, gradually turned yellow like plain white socks, etc). Does anyone else have experience with these socks? They're kind of pricey but sooo comfortable.

    Yea I have 6-7 pairs and they're great but my two oldest ones got holes in the toe. Probably worn them a hundred times and I put them in the dryer which wears them out faster...

    These are the cockroaches of socks. They will be around long after you're dead. I've got 5 pairs that I bought at some super-sale 5 years ago. Only one pair shows any sign of wear. I wear them riding, backpacking and for everyday usages. Heck, you barely have to wash these things. I wore the same pair everyday for 5 straight days of 10 hour per day bikepacking with temperatures ranging from 35 to 75F everyday. I just did a 4 day backing trip with with an 11 hour slog one day and wore the same pair the entire time. Only took them off for about half an hour one time. And I used the single pair that is showing some signs of wear ...with full confidence. I've got a half dozen other brands that I like a lot less. I also like the Wool-ator and the air-ater isn't bad I'd you want something thinner.
