[Dollarama] 6 pack Men's Body Grove Socks $4 YMMV

Price:
$4
Retailer:
Dollarama

I posted a couple weeks ago a deal on women's body glove 10 packs of socks Dollarama. I went in there tonight and they have men's six pack Socks by body glove for $4. It's not as good of a deal and they are bright colours, however it sure beats buying them from winners or somewhere else. 95% polyester.

I bought these a few weeks ago, good quality, but they fit really small and I had to give them to my son. Also, they are very much Jamaican/Rastafarian influenced if that attracts or detracts you...

Depends on the construction of the sock. The whole idea is to keep the feet dry. Historically some polyester socks did not allow feet to breath, leading to moisture buildup. However, modern polyester socks are not only more breathable, but many also wick the moisture away from the feet. For example those Under Armour type materials are all very good at wicking away moister, which will decrease smells.

I can't comment on these particular socks, but your statement about all polyester socks leading to bad smells is incorrect.

Wife and I used to wear polyester athletic socks several years ago (Puma, Hanes, etc.) Odour mostly ranged from moderate to quite bad. When she started wearing a lot of memory foam insoled shoes, the odour and moisture buildup became disasterous Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes
Don't know how far poly has come in terms of odour but we have stuck to Cotton and mostly Cotton blends.
Back in maybe 2013-2014 we bought several multipacks of Body Glove brand socks from Winners which are at least 70% Cotton. Same with Skechers brand socks. But I've found Cotton/blend socks are harder to come by at Winners/Marshalls...I might revisit polyester socks and save the Cotton stockpile for the Mrs. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Wicking works well when the moisture can be passed out to evaporate, but in the case of socks this may not work well depending on the breathability of the shoe being worn. Many shoes no not breathe well (one of the reasons they often smell!).

They are polyester because it is a cheap material for the manufacturer. Cotton costs more and is better.

If you have unbreathable shoes, sock choice isn't going to help you. One of the first things they will tell you in any outdoors course is to avoid cotton clothing at all costs. Cotton absorbs moisture. Wool (if your skin can tolerate it) and breathable artificial fibers are far superior for dealing with moisture issues.

Any outdoors course(s) you recommend?
