What’s good? You know the pre­con­cep­tion that socks make re­ally naff Christ­mas presents? For­get it if you get a pair of these this year – they’re gen­uinely bril­liant.

It’s the per­fect an­swer to boots that have a ten­dency to let wa­ter in. They’re com­pletely wa­ter­proof thanks to the Stretchdry mem­brane, some­thing that I’ve even gone to the lengths of test­ing by sub­merg­ing my feet in a bath, find­ing that my toot­sies stayed com­pletely dry. They’re also hard-wear­ing, com­fort­able, breath­able, wind­proof, and come in dif­fer­ing lengths and thick­nesses to suit your footwear. I was ini­tially scep­ti­cal about shelling out £33 for a pair of socks, but a week of wild camp­ing in Scot­land with no dry­ing fa­cil­i­ties forced my hand. If you need the hosiery equiv­a­lent of a Swiss army knife then look no fur­ther.

What’s not? £33 of your finest English pounds may seem a lot to pay for a pair of socks, but they are worth it.
