I am something of a sock snob. I live in a place that gets mighty frigid in the winter months, and the only way to keep your toes intact until Spring arrives is socks, socks, socks!
Sock Dreams brand stockings rarely let me down, and Super Basics are no exception. They are both super as well as basic--they are a very standard long sock that isn't extremely thick nor wimpy and thin. They're super...why?
Super Basics currently come in nearly a dozen colours, from demure Natural to shocking Red to fashionable Delft (which is a dusky medium blue, for reference). They also come in two sizes, so if you have big feet or small, you can enjoy these socks.
I like them because they can be worn full-length, which for me goes up to the tops of my thighs. That's something, as I'm 5'10" and mostly leg! I have thin legs, but these socks stay up unless I run around, which I really don't too terribly often. Don't worry if you happen to be a bit shorter; cuffing them or scrunching them is not only lovely-looking, but suggested on the website.
The socks are stretchy, warm but not too thick, and comfy enough to wear during the night. With a great price (and free shipping on any order!) and such a wide variety of colours, you make want to sock...er, stock up!
