When I think of wool clothing, images of itchy sweaters and itchy anything come to mind... but not these socks! Coeur socks are my favorite to begin with (height, compression, fit), so I figured it was worth trying these in the wool version, and I am sold!! The same height, compression and fit I love from the 'regular' Coeur socks, but now in a warmer fabric! (And I promise you, no itchy wool!) I wore these last week for a 10 degree/feels like -8 run, and my feet stayed warm the whole time! No cold or numb toes so I was able to focus on running and not on how cold it was.
