Do wool socks REALLY not stink after wearing several times? Episode 2

Hello all,

Wear 2.  February 28, 2012

The weather was much warmer this day.  Again I am not sure of the actual temperature, but I ended up being sweaty and that is all that matters. 

Today we have 400m intervals.  Before I get into the stink factor let me just compliment how well these socks keep my feet from grinding when I am pushing through the uptempo portion of intervals.  When I am not wearing them and I run flat out, I tend to get hot spots on the balls of my feet as I push.  The socks act as the perfect liner and keep those hot spots from forming.

On to the stink.  Once I got home, after my shake of course, I went upstairs and de-socked.  As you can see from the photo, you can't even really tell I had them on.  They were not nasty sweaty or dirty even though I was burning up.  The only thing I can say (and I am not sure it is a negative thing) is that they felt thinner than the first time.  It did not alter the performance of them that I could tell, but it was just something I noticed.

One thing to note is that the heel looks a bit dirtier than the rest of the sock.  I think that is mostly from the ink on the bottom of the shoe coming off.  Look at the picture on the previous post and you will see smudged ink from the brand logo.

So far the lore of wool repelling the evil stink spirits is proving to be true, but we are not even close to done putting these bad boys through the test.  Stay tuned for more updates.
