I have a lot of snazzy socks, it won't fit on this page. But when I have time, I'm going for the shark ones.

If those orange/magenta/blue stripey ones have actually been on your feet...you are about a trillion times cooler than I thought you were, friend.

I still take that as a compliment! No ... actually as a true approval to a sock Connoisseur! Or something like that.

Unfortunately, on another bike forum I'm on - this one ... PERSON ... stated that she had as many socks - but also had another drawer besides. I've been outdone. She is the true Sock Imelda.

course said person has yet to cough up a pic yet.

My only gripe with Smartwool is how they discontinue them so quickly.
