“I was turned on to covert threads by Russ three years ago and I use them for everything I do now. Whether I’m hiking boundary lines at work, wading a stream, sitting in a cold tree stand, or training for my next competition, these socks keep my feet warm and dry. I haven’t found a sock yet that is as comfortable, durable, and works better at reducing foot odor than Covert Threads.”
