The highlights

The Barricade socks are my hands down favorites. And I’ll tell you why.

First, the fit. Because there is a specific right foot and left foot sock (clearly marked), the socks fit like a glove! There is no bunching up of extra material anywhere (I hate that). The height of the sock is just right too. It doesn’t come up too high like most crew socks do.

Second reason why I love these socks? The material. The Climalite technology really works and does a great job in keeping my feet dry. It’s a nice blend of many different materials, which I like because I’ve worn 100% polyester socks before and they make my feet smell. Gross I know.

And lastly, I love these socks not just for the material used, but for the amount used. They don’t feel like they’ll rip if I pull on them too tightly. They aren’t super thick like a Thorlo sock, but there is just enough there to make me feel like this is a high quality product. And the proof is in the pudding, as they say, because I’ve worn and washed these for months now and they still feel and perform like new. Who knew I could have so much to say about socks?! But for me, these Barricade socks are like the Highlander: There can only be one.
