I always go for Damart thermo stuff - just an example here. https://www.damart.co.uk/F-10018-socks--w/P-386591-pack-of-2-thermolactyl-calf_length-socks

I think I would be looking for; 1 cushioned soles 2 longer socks rather than short ones 3 merino wool content. These look okay, but you might do better on other websites like Great Outdoors that someone mentioned; https://www.mandmdirect.com/01/details/QW30094/Trespass-Mens-Stroller-Merino-Wool-Trekking-Socks-Black-Marl

Updated, modern twist on the old socks n sandals issue (lol)

Oh as you know I love me sliders and socks. Dead comfy, Especially when a bit chilly. Can't be white socks though! Nar, none of that lark. Black socks only and any colour slider you wish (y)

FactProvider

I've never heard of 'sliders', apart from the TV series and the american meat-bun product. They look like sandals for name-brand bellends.

ccnp

Rohan normally unless I'm in CH where socks are about £25 a pair but are seriously good.. About to test drive a Salamon pair from Go outdoors at £12 a pair on sell off. Starting the SCP next month

leitchyleck

allready have walked 20 mile/day in bridgedale light socks i got for £15 for two pair with no problems, just looking for any deals and suggestions. was looking at yuedge in price range but they seem to be a heavier/winter sock.

ArcadeAssassin

You are walking nearly a hundred miles and you want to spend £4 each on a pair of socks!? Madness! The foot is the most used part of the body when walking and that suffers the most wear and tear so invest in some good quality socks else you’ll not even complete a full day let alone the week as your feet will be fudged! Anything by smartwool or darn tough is what i use and i do 20mile hikes each weekend!

Thread for darning socks
Hi, Found a small hole in one of my socks so went to my sewing box to get some thread. Unfortunately the only thread I have left is a tad thicker than the sock material. Should I g… Read more

Turn the sock inside out, and see if it's gone!

psychobitchfromhell

You could use the saved thread to Make ties to keep the socks up, in the style of baby bootees. Perhaps you could unwrap the slightly too thick thread ( you'll Probably find it is made of several strands) and re wrap the thread to the correct thickness. If you have any silkworms handy, you could make your own silk thread. I saw this done once in China. A cheaper alternative might be to spin cobwebs together. These frequent the eaves spaces of many older houses, or the wallets of many hukd members

neversay

Is this the darning socks thread? :D

psychobitchfromhell

If I were you I would carefully unravel the top of your sock and use that thread to darn the hole. Then I would unravel a similar amount from the other sock so you have spare in case of further holes. Either that or cut your foot off.

Prosamuraiman

Every pair of socks I've ever bought from Hennes has developed holes, so definitely return them!

jamie15

Socks should be fine to return unused, not a big deal.

If you bought online then you need to read this. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/consumer/changed-your-mind/changing-your-mind-about-something-youve-bought/

MrHappyGilmore

Yea probably just felt thin as hell. They were £12 for 10. If they are that qualify i may as well just buy the asda basic ones at 7 pairs for £3

Haircut_100

Didn't like the material? It's just a sock. Unless they were extremely expensive I wouldn't worry about the material, I'd just wear them. I bet that once they are on your feet anyway you won't even notice them.
