As I get ready for bed, I am nurturing my gratitude for wool socks. Quality wool socks are the best ever, and every time I wear a pair of new wool socks, I feel like I am on cloud nine. They feel so comfortable, with such great support for my overworked feet (when you're working on your feet almost thirteen hours a day, or do some heavy duty walking/running, or have flat feet like I do, you suddenly start appreciating your feet a lot more).
I discovered wool socks a few years ago, as I was window shopping (a favourite pastime of mine) at a sports store. The label caught my eye, which said "Smartwool PhD". I thought to myself, "Honestly, PhD as a marketing strategy for socks, really?" I picked up the pair of socks, and sneered at the price, something around 19 or 20 dollars. Then I got reading about how the socks have great cushioning to the arch and toes, etc., and at the time I had just finished my first 10k run, and realized that blisters were becoming a problem, and since I only have two feet that work really hard, I decided to try out these highly intelligent socks. Remembering the first time I put those socks on still make me feel all warm and fuzzy, almost orgasmic if I might say so (hey, if people can get all tingly from shoes, I can get tingly from a brand new pair of socks ;-) Needless to say, I have become a fan of these doctorate socks, and well, the marketing strategy worked, lol.

Thank you, wool socks for pampering my feet, and Smartwool, for helping me discover the world of gloriously divine wool socks.
