A Message from the Tall Rights Activist Group
With the inclusion of an XL sock fitting a foot size of 14.5, the TRAG would like to thank Meh. Although our brethren have feet sizing up to 19 or more, we see this inclusion of an XL sock as a step in the right direction. The sun rises over the horizon. A new day is here. Stand tall, brothers. Stand tall.
@Gypped yeah, there’s no info I can find. I see socks like this all the time that are 5 % wool, rest polyester. Just from the picture, these look very low in wool content, plus nothing about this company online. I can get 4 pairs of People Socks for $35 that are 71% Merino Wool ,21% Nylon, 7% Poly,1% Spandex. They’re decent for the money, probably better made than these socks.
@the_inevitable People Socks are pretty good, but the pairs I’ve had wore out generally in about 1-2 years. Of course, I bought them when they were a much newer brand and trying to get out there - usually 4 for $15-20.
Most of the socks I have now are from Costco - Weatherproof socks. They have a much lower wool %, but they seem to be lasting pretty well so far. And they’re MUCH cheaper, 4 for $10 when not on sale.
2% Lycra Spandex
@Gypped Yeah, mine are a little weak in the toes, but I also wear them daily. For the price, though, it’s not bad. I usually try to hit REI in spring when all the wool socks go on clearance, but I’ve been negligent this year.
I also like the moisture wicking part so I can wear them year round. The synthetic socks just don’t feel right any more.
@a13z Most of the “good” brands of Merino Wool socks are 70-85%. Good point to bring up! Also, are this THICK or THIN Merino Wool socks? My Costco are THICK Merino Wool. They do sell “dress socks” made of Merino Wool and “ladies” Merino Wool socks, both appear to be thin.
I am 58 years old, and made the switch to Merino Wool socks this year, and could not be happier! I live in Houston, TX, so Merino Wool socks are not just for cold weather. As for price, go to Amazon and search for Merino Wool socks, you will find the price is all over the the place, I have seen a single pair of Merino Wool socks cost more than this. That said, I stocked up (or should I say SOCKED up!!) on Costco 17.99/6 pair of Merino Wool socks. Google Merino Wool Socks to find discussions about “the converted”! I got rid of all my other socks, and have only Merino Wool socks in my sock drawer.
Oh, the Costco Merino Wool Socks are:
72% Merino Wool
Made in USA with imported Merino Wool
OH MY GOD THEY HAD THE PERFECT PRODUCT TO SHOWCASE GLEN BUT THEY CHOSE NOT TO BECAUSE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN TOTALLY CLICHE AND ANYWAY ITS BEEN DONE OR MAYBE THEY WERE JUST BONEHEADS AND DIDN’T THINK OF IT THIS TIME!!!
This looks like a personal producer(it looks like overseas?) who purchased the logo design via contact bid. All that adds up to a big red flag when it comes to socks with specialty wool, especially when there’s not any standard on blending.
@hchavers seriously though, you need to educate yourself about wool and domestic sheep. Sheep need their wool shorn every year, because they can’t shed. There are reasons there’s been a relationship between humans and sheep for millennia. They are not killed for it, and the majority of sheep farmers are responsible and treat their flocks well.
Woo-hoo! Socks in sizes other than “men’s”. Thanks Meh!
Boo! No info on fiber content. I need a couple of pairs of new socks and wear exclusively high merino wool content socks. But without knowing what these socks are actually made of, this is a hard pass (meh pass? hard meh?).
I have too many socks. We live near some of the mills that make for Costco, the military and others. They have sales you would not believe. Like 24 pair for $10. Of course they are irregs. But hey they work. Pass.
Really, really hard, especially if looking for anything specific. Nordstrom Rack used to have some shoes for me, but now inexplicably just has UGGs and the fugliest boots you’ve ever seen, occasionally offset by some loafers that are in awful colors.
I usually have to resort to ordering three or four pairs from Zappos and just sending back until I get something that kinda works.
I did find a local shoe chain that actually occasionally does carry big stuff, but usually they’re in the $180 range for New Balance
I’ve been wearing mostly merino wool socks for fifteen years (with a few cotton socks thrown in) in a million different weights, and I’ve generally stayed with seconds from Smartwool and Darn Tough. Unfortunately, there are some lousy merino blends out there, so even at this price, I’m wary. Personally, I never put my wool socks in the dryer, since I’m wary of them not only shrinking, but felting.
I didn’t get the email until 8:25 EST, why bother selling this if there’s none left when I get the email telling me about it? This is not the first time this has happened. You guys are really starting to suck.
Are there any reviews on the producer’s products or this brand? Can’t find any. Was thinking yes but now thinking nah… $14 is a good deal for decent socks, but I cannot seem to tell if they are decent. I didn’t know the whole “special treatment” for non-treated wool socks.
I was wondering why people couldn’t find any info on Xtreme Feet other than the little bits and pieces mentioned above. At this point it’s my theory that they are new and are using Meh as a way of “breaking out” into the market and generating initial sales. This used to happen on woot from time to time.
Though if that was the case, it would have been nice if meh said that up front in the description. Would make it easier to give this company a shot, rather than looking like a series of red flags…
Sigh Only small left for the 4pm release and even those were sold out in less than two minutes. Apparently people like possibly good socks offered in a variety of sizes. Maybe these will be back at some point.
So I actually ordered the socks. They were just delivered and the size small and size medium Both say the same shoe size…ummm not sure how that works but the medium looks like it Might be a little larger than the small. Hmmmm…
Now that they have arrived, I think the only issue with these socks is that the tag is mislabled. It says Medium is US-size 5.5-7.5. However, they fit my 9.5 feet very well. The Listing on Meh described the size accurately: Medium=8.0-9.5. (BTW, they’re really warm and comfy!)
