Pros: Comfort, warmth, durability, weight
Paihama socks are the best socks I've owned. I'm a hiker, traveler, and outdoor enthusiast who goes through socks like crazy. I also have problems with socks that give me foot odor after a long, active day outside.
Paihama socks are lighter and warmer than my other wool socks. They are made with the fur of the common New Zealand brushtail possum. The possum is a threat to New Zealand's native forests. This company is the only place to buy paihama wool socks in the US. A truly unique product of amazing quality. Worth the extra money.
