[Costco] Kirkland signature trail wool socks 5pk, $9.97 YMMV

Price lowered to $9.97 from $19.99 at Kanata, Ottawa. 75% wool.

Previous discussions are here. I believe it’s the same product.

The men's one are considerably worse compared to the old style sadly...or the women's for that matter. Bought a bunch last time they were on offer and stopped using them altogether.

There were a few Costco's in BC Lower Mainland that had the women's merino wool socks @ 6.97 (seem sold out now) and those feel much better and are suitable for summer as well... as long as you aren't a above size 10-10.5 (mens shoe size). Even if they wear out quickly, they're a bargain at that price.

Good price, worth using up my last day pass this year for?
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

The quality of these socks now are absolutely terrible. Years ago they used to be great, thick, last forever. Now, you'd be hard pressed to get 1 winter season out of them (they thin so fast in the heel and on the ball of your foot). I used to buy these and only these socks for a few years, but stopped last year after 2 years of shit quality.

Agree, the quality of these socks has become horrible in the last few years. But at this price, worth stocking up to use in cold ice rinks while waiting for kids games and practices.

I use these for work socks and they get decent longevity for the price, but ya it's usually the toes that are first to give out. Last time I went to buy a pack, there were oodles of them, but all were the smaller size.

Anyone have a different recommendation for warm weather work boot socks?

Thanks op.

Echoing the posters above, that the current version of these socks bear little resemblance to those “back in the day”.

I have been wearing these as my favourite boot and winter socks for twenty years I think. I must own about 60 prs currently (not hard to do when you are picking up a 5 pack or two at $x.97 every year.

There have been at least 5 iterations over the years. Each version seemed to slip a little on quality.

Earlier versions had a higher merino content and were quite a bit thicker but were more prone to pilling and shrinkage if you didn’t care for them properly.

I think like Costco’s $1.50 dog and soda deal to hold the price point they open supply tenders to sock manufacturers and their allowed spec’s have been eased over the years to hit that price point. Like their dumping of Coke for Pepsi products at the food kiosk a couple of years ago.

I just bought another pack this week at 9.97 as I can’t pass them up but although they don’t have the longevity or performance they once did but for $2.00 a pair they are still worth it for me.

My preference would be if a regular non .97
Price was increased to say $5 or 6 a pair from $4 and go back to the original spec’s.

Costco sock buyers might not be hardcore like the Darn Tough and Smartwool $30 a pair crowd. But at current prices you could certainly offer a pair of socks that offered 85 - 90% of the performance of the above premium brands at a fifth of the price.

Inflation has hit everything else for the most part so why should a pair of socks be the same price they were 20 years ago?

“Cool” story, I know but as an early adopter to these socks (and Costco’s combed cotton t-shirts - same story as the socks) I feel like I have a vested interest in their welfare. :0)

I have been wearing merino wool socks exclusively for the last 15 years, under hard to extreme conditions for a lot of that time. I will never wear anything else again. I've pretty much stuck to WigWam, Darn Tough and Farm to Feet, but they are anywhere from $20 to $40 a pair.

I bought a pack of these a few weeks ago at $14.97 and I've been very impressed with the feel and performance. I can't yet speak to durability, but at $2 a pair, if I can get 8-12 months, I'd be happy.

I going to buy a load of them the next time I go in, provided they're still there.

Mine wore out the heels in a few months and the forefoot in less than a year.

Think of these US made socks like US made Chrysler cars.

I should add, these socks were purchased about 10 or so years ago.
