These are my favourite socks so far. I am very particular about cold feet and these socks somehow always make it all right. Wearing them you catch yourself randomly thinking, wow this feels good. Hard to explain. Also, I do a lot of dog walking, 1h per day minumum. I have rain boots that gave me blisters each time with whatever socks I wore. I actually deliberately made a test and tried with several. Medis were 1st and only one that prevented me getting blisters, so now it's the only sock I would even consider wearing for outdoor activities. My sock drawer has also become minimalist now, as other aspects of my life are becoming more and more. It now consists only of alles mooi models. I rather have just 5 pairs of socks which I can wear all year round with no issues whatsoever, than the cotton, cold, tearing-appart, souless, cheap stuff I had before. And last but not least...I also like the story behind the brand. It's inspirational and worth supporting.
