This is the official introduction of my new business: GooseFeet Down Socks. I make high quality down socks and will soon make a shell to go over them.

Hi ben

But the photo of the goose on your web site shows that its feet have no down on them at all???
:-)

Good Luck
Cheers

Roger,

Yeah I know, I've though about trying to edit that picture to show that goose wearing a pair of my socks....

Just tried to come up with a name that would convey the material and the use in one phrase... :-)

A picture of them in their stuff sack would be helpful.

Justin,

When I get home Friday, I will post more pictures on the website. Unfortunately on the product page, my website builder only allows one picture per product.

Justin,

You can also reference the pictures of my prototypes on this thread. There is a picture of the stuffsack there, although it is made from momentum90 now, and has a drawstring at the top.

I ordered a pair for my wife .. who has the infamous " cold feet syndrome"... Duirng the day, a pair of wool socks and her shoes keep her feet warm... HOwever, when goes to bed at night .. ice cubes on the feet.

They arrived yesterday and , upon inspection, they appeared to be everythig as advertised..

At bedtime, she slipped them on and a BIG smile spread accross her face ... (so far so good !)

As we got up this a.m. .. the first words out of her mouth were . " these are great ! " .. Comfy, light, warm,nice fit, breathed well, etc..

Short version .. Perfect !!!!!!!!!!!!

How much down fill is used in each sock?

Thanks,

Sid- from Ben's link above, "I will be using .5oz of down in each sock"

Sid,

Brad is correct, although I begun to think that the XL's need to come standard with a little more to maximize their loft, and the XS's and S's maybe need a little less, although I will definitely get anyone's permission before I put more or less down fill in. Also, you can order extra by the .5oz if you think you need more than what is standard on any pair.

Hi Ben

Hey, hardly a GOOD rendering! I only had a few minutes to do it (bed-time), and just hacked. Need better pics of the booties to do a good job - close-ups at correct angles.
