The seven inch tall cuffs on these Swiftwick Pursuit Seven Merino Wool Socks make a lot of sense. After all, you're likely to wear these thicker Merino socks when the temperature drops a bit and you opt to leave your thinner summer socks in the drawer. While they're certainly not winter socks, Swiftwick's Pursuit Merino Socks offer a touch more insulation which makes them fabulously suitable for trans-seasonal days that may start chilly and warm up as you tick off the mileage. The superior temperature/comfort range of wool ensures all day comfort. Swiftwick makes the Pursuit Merino Socks on a 200-needle knitting machine. The benefit is that you'll get a high density, seamless sock. The process allows variability in the finished knit of the socks, as different parts meet different performance requirements. For example, the cushioned footbed gives way to the thinner, channeled upper -- both components playing a crucial role to increase your comfort. When you slip into a pair of Pursuit Socks, you'll immediately feel that they're tailored for your feet.

And when we say that wool absorbs less stink than most synthetic fibers, it's true. The Swiftwick Pursuit Seven Merino Wool Socks are available in Black, Coal, and Heather Grey. They come in fo...
