I started wearing Wright Socks years ago when I was doing a lot of backpacking. I never had a blister or any sore spots. I’m not backpacking any more but still rely on my Wright socks for any hiking that I do. Actually, they are the only socks I use. As long as I turn them inside out when I put them in the washer, they last.
First off, I initially thought these were the best hiking socks I have ever owned. Several backpacking trips and urban hiking with zero blisters or other issues. That's the good. The bad is that they simply all developed holes in the heels with maybe 10-15 days max? The first pair that it happened to I thought it might be an outlier. However, after it now happening to 4 pairs it's obvious I need to look elsewhere. Disappointed.
I've worn the heavier padded Wright socks for years now and they have been very good overall. I have not had problems with blisters and the padding is appreciated.
The soles are very comfortable and the two separate layers contribute much to this. I ordered the X-Large as I am right on the upper limit of Large and the lower limit of the X-Large. Thinking the socks would be small or shrink I now have the X-Large. They are a bit tighter than I am used to but time will tell how I like them.
Had ordered 4 pairs of socks, but received only 3 pairs. Send 2 emails, but never got a replay…….Sorry to say you lost a loyal customer.
