Sock Club – December 2015 – Review & Giveaway

December 2015When you think of California, the first material that comes to mind is generally not wool. People in California tend to live in shorts, bikini tops. and flip-flops – and that is in mid-December. I am not one of these people, as I run cold all the time. I get cold while going through our local grocery store. Since I have this temperature issue, I plan accordingly – I have sweaters in the car and I always wear socks around my house at night.

Despite the warmth factor, I tend to shy away from wool due to the added weight that wool sock provide. I can honestly say that my opinion of wool socks has forever been changed from this months SockClub sock selection for the December sock.

I received a pair called “The Wool Lustre” – the first Sock Club sock made with wool. The socks were packaged in the usual 8×11 “Sock Club” branded cardboard envelope and were packed safely inside. When I opened the envelope I found the classically wrapped brown bag package with a red wax seal in the middle, which is designed as a closure of the socks included therein. As with previous review package’s I received from Sock Club the enclosed letter explained the inspiration behind the current months selection.

The Lustre on feetThe Limited Release Wool Lustre sock is a multi colored sock with stripes of varying width in red, gray and black alternating throughout the sock as you go toward the toes. The top of the socks have a thin band of black and followed by grey, red and black. The socks went up my calf about halfway between my ankle and knee, and held there very well throughout my day. The label stated that the sock was made up of 52% wool, 24% nylon, 17% cotton, 6% polyester and 1% spandex, so shrinkage should be at a minimum. This was a comfortable sock that was thin unlike a traditional wool sock. Despite it being wool the sock allows it to be worn with just about any shoe without adding extra bulk.

These were the most diversely fibrous socks that I have seen, and I am guessing that it is due to the wool. These were very comfortable socks, and they kept my feet warm, without the wool bulk of other wool socks. These socks are reminiscent of the holidays, which given it is the December sock, it seems very appropriate. I love these socks, and I wore them on Christmas, and got many compliments. While my overall temperature still needs regulation, it is nice to know my feet are going to be warm!

If you are a sock lover or liker, I would HIGHLY recommend giving Sock Club a try!

    I love the way they feel when you put them on and how they look because they have not faded yet or gotten dirty on the bottoms.

    My favorite part about new socks is the feeling on your feet. They are snug and you don’t have to keep readjusting them and they are smooth with no lint balls.

    I love socks and my favorite thing about them is putting them on the first time. Feeling the cushion beneath your feet and putting them on right from the dryer while their still warm. Yep I love socks.

    When I put on new socks I always think that these will be the perfect socks that will fit will and be soft and comfortable. Then I would buy more of those socks, esp. if I can get different colors and patterns.

    My favourite thing about new socks is the feeling you get when you first try them on. You don’t realize how worn out the old pairs are until you try new ones on.

    There’s just something about putting on a brand new pair of socks. Maybe it’s in my head, but I swear they fit better. They haven’t been stretched out yet, worn out yet, ran through the wash, etc.

    best thing about new socks is being able to get rid of some old ones that no longer have any heels.
