I expected it to be a lot more expensive than $15 a pair.

I bought heavy wool hiking socks from Cabala's for winter use only. They have Kevlar reinforced heels and toes with ball of the foot reinforcement and I STILL have them.

Amazing! Wish they still sold them.

They sound horribly uncomfortable!

The kevlar is only at the toe.

What is "carbon threading"?

I bet they smell to high heaven after a hike.

"Inspired by the Milan fashion scene". I'll pass. (But the Cat in the Hat wants a pair;-)

I have worn Nomex (Kevlar's kin) long johns and they were not smelly like polyester and were as soft as cotton. If the kevlar was made from the softer versions, it would likely
be fine.
