  • Duty Socks - What socks do you use?

    Hey, I was just wondering if anyone recommends any nice socks for duty use. Do you use the generic Walmart ones, 5.11 socks or another brand?

    I have 2 pairs of 5.11 black socks that I've gotten with new boots.. and I love them. But the cost just doesn't seem worth it to buy more.

    I'm mainly looking for some nice black socks for the summer heat.

      Regular white socks from Walmart, with the odor eaters bulit in. Technically we are supposed to wear black socks, but with 8in boots its impossible to tell anyways.

      The 5.11 socks though are great for when i wear more low cut boots. Also their cold weather socks go GREAT with my insulated boots in the winter. Though during the hots months the extra cushoning in their socks seems to make my feet sweat to much.

        I buy my socks from JC Penney. They're either Stafford or Towncraft. I like them because they seem to hold up longer than any other brand of socks including Hanes and Fruit of the Loom. They're white, and I wear them with all my shoes unless of course I'm wearing slacks and dress shoes. That'd be geeky. I wear boots at work so my socks never show.

            I just use some generic black socks from the store. They work fine and since I always am "gellin", I don't need any comfort built into the sock.

            But if I had some extra money, I'd go for a pair of 5.11's.

              I'm not sure of the brand (maybe Haynes), but I only wear the thick, white socks with the grey toes.....from Costco.....buy them in packs of 10K.....

                I bought some 511's on sale. They were nice, but I wore holes in the toes right away. Back to cheapos for me. (Gotta cut those toenails someday)

                  Those always ride down into my boots.

                    For hot weather, I'm partial to lightweight polypro socks. Cost about 3 bucks a pair, but they last a long time and I wouldn't want to use anything else in the heat.

                        Hell last time I checked they are all cotton lol.

                        5.11's cost too much just to get 3 pairs, I can go to a store and get 6 pairs for the same price or lower.

                            Standard issue black athletic socks, by Wilson, from Walmart. Cheap and you get a whole bag at a time.
