I might get some. It seems like a lot of money for socks, but that is quite a donation on their part. Good quality socks for the homeless. Not only is that the most needed item, but they need good quality socks. I just got some pumas and they are shredded after 3 wears.

I just ordered 32 pairs, lol. After discount it was $261 dollars with free shipping, so that is about 8 dollars/sock.pair. It is also 32 pairs of socks donated to homeless shelters. Of course, I will keep some of them myself and give them a rating. If they don't make it past the pumas, the company won't last.

I realized I never reviewed them. They are the best socks I've ever worn. I will probably only ever buy Bombas socks. I'll accept free socks as gifts. I hike so much, I go through them. I've only ruined one pair. 2 weeks ago I hiked and there was 3 feet of snow at the top. I hiked in sneakers until I put spikes on at the top. My sneakers were soaked and the socks are not salvagable. They are great socks though.
