I have become disillusioned with Thorlo Socks, I used to buy the wool light hiker style at the factory store at the Intesection of I77 & I40 in North Carolina. The pairs I have bought there the last couple of trips have torn apart at the toe. The few remaining pairs from several years ago are still holding up but are getting thin. I like a wool sock that I can wear year round. What brand and style do you recomend getting and where to purchase them. Also are there any other brands to stay away from.
