Listen, is this the sexiest topic of conversation ever? No. But as with pens, I’ve found that folks are persnickety and brand-loyal to their socks and I want to know which socks you are persnickety about and brand loyal to. I also want to take this moment to thank the Fug Nationals who turned me on to Bombas, the no-show sock that I am persnickety about and brand loyal to.  They’re the only no-show I’ve ever worn that don’t eventually give up the ghost and just wriggle off my heel and under my foot. What’s your sock holy grail?
