Iím of the opinion that unless youíre golfing in cold climate (in which case thumbs up for smartwool), any old socks will do fine.

But if your feet sweat and you're a walker, you need good socks to guard against blisters.

I play in 90*+ temps in the summer.  My feet never feel hot in Kentwool socks.  The best golf sock I have ever worn and it's not even close.

One area that I really haven't taken too serious, I use "no show" Under Armour socks in the summer and regular Under Armour "ankle socks" for the winter, but I don't go out unless is 45* or better.

100% worth it!  I know they are expensive, but so worth the money.  They also last forever, I have had several pairs last 3 seasons.  I play 4 times a week.  Gotta take care of your feet.

If you are worried about durability, you shouldn't be.  If you follow the instructions and wash them inside out they seem to be indestructible.  I still have the first pairs I bought.  And, if you sign up on their website, you will receive sale notices.

This isn't the only sock thread.  There is also the winter sock thread, the caddie sock thread, the no-show sock thread, the summer sock thread, and the sweaty feet sock thread.

People are passionate about their socks!

I used to think that socks were socks until I put on and played a round with Kentwool. Now I'll never go back. Super comfortable, not too hot or too cold, better than cotton for odor control, and perhaps most importantly, durable. I bought one pair and they've lasted ages.

Have never tried Kentwool (or wool in general), mostly because I've never had any blisters.

I tend not to wear the no-shows, mostly because they end up riding down my heel and being uncomfortable. I have a thick enough foot that they don't quite get far enough up in the heel of the shoe. For that reason, I usually do ankle socks or ones with tabs to prevent to heel slipping down

Oddly enough I really like the Copperfit no show socks. You can get a 3 pack at Dicks for $10 I believe. Very comfortable, good support, padded tab on the back. All around a great sock. I believe I have about 10 pairs or so now. The only socks I golf in anymore. I donít really buy into any of the copper infused stuff or whatever it is. I just know they are good socks.

As huge ballgame hidden comfort fan, I find this intriguing.  
Is there any particular model of the darn tough youíre talking about?  Also, have you compared them to kentwool?  Thanks!

Kentwools are great but Swiftwick pursuit wool socks are more durable.
