Re: Socks
Darn Toughs in XL fit my size 15 feet very well. Does make shoe shopping easier, not too many choices. Narrows the field quite a bit.

The smell made me feel sick though. If you had used the Permatex flowable windshield silicone you would not have had this problem. I did my Duomid inside and smelled nothing, nor did my wife.
