Sockspert Opinions

John's Thoughts

If someone put me in charge of naming this sock, I would call it the "Half Pounder" or maybe the "Thickest Sock I've Ever Seen In My Life." Thankfully, Wigwam doesn't listen to me when it comes to naming socks. I'm just saying that is one super thick and dense sock. The thickness of this sock will literally change the fit of your boots. Plan accordingly. The feel of the Ice Sock is very traditional wool. It doesn't mess around with that soft merino wool. Nope, this sock is meant for tough guys and gals. These socks would look great with an old Woolrich Buffalo Plaid jacket from the '50s. Don't even try to wear these socks for lounging around indoors, they are just too darn warm. I would only make an exception for our friends' Christine and Scot's house. They keep the temp set at 58 degrees. That's mighty cold to be kicking back on the couch. Brrr!
