I haven’t found them to perform exactly as advertised, but they are still my favorite pair of socks at the moment. Click here to see my initial review on the socks.
I recently completed a weekend backpacking trip in the southwestern corner of Virginia in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area. Many know to it and refer to it as Grayson Highlands. 23 miles and two nights on the trail gave me the perfect opportunity to put the Lowa Renegade GTX Mid hiking boots to the test.
