    Need some socks

    Hi,
    while I like Smartwool socks, this year seems to be the year of the snug fit.
    I am switching to roadie shoes that are a half size smaller, and my new sneaks
    are also snug. So I am wondering if there's anything better out there.
    I only buy socks that have at least some natural fibers in them. Doesn't have to be
    all natural, I just haven't had good luck with the all synthetic socks.
    And they need to be paper thin. Anything out there you really like?

    Hmmm... what is it about synthetics that bother you? I only ask because I've had great results from Lin cycling socks and they use all synthetic materials. I wait until REI has a big sale on them. If you're adamant about natural fiber then you might want to consider socks made from Alpaca wool. I'm thinking about getting some myself.



    I love those little guys...
