The thing with the Stance Praisey Snow Socks is that once you get them into your ski sock rotation, you'll find yourself never wanting to wear any of your other socks. One day riding in that nicely cushioned but not-too-thick merino blend fabric and your old stretched out prolly-ester things just aren't going to feel right anymore. Luckily for you, the Holding has been treated with Feel360™techonlogy which makes the already moisture-wicking, odor-resistant merino wool that much more moisture-wicking and odor-resistant. That means you'll be able to squeeze a few more uses out of them in between washes. Maybe you should just do yourself a favor and snag a couple pairs.
