Jeep Men's Terrain Thermal Socks


Whenever I do the laundry, I always shove all the clean socks into a big sock bag before matching them up into pairs and putting them into the drawers in the various bedrooms. For me and all three of the kids, it's dead easy because all the socks have different patterns or colours (not to mention sizes) so the kids love playing "sock pairs" and enthusiastically help me sort them out. Then it comes to Daddy's socks. They're ALL black. But some are slightly longer or slightly darker or slightly more worn out at the toes so it's a real pain getting them matched up correctly.

I had a bit of a giggle when Mike received some new socks to review from Jeep because -you've guessed it -they're black ! But these ones will be easy to recognise because they're really thick and soft and have a luxurious feel to them.

My first thought is that they remind me of the thick socks I used to wear inside my walking boots when I was in the mountaineering club at uni. The funniest thing was always when we arrived at the little climbers' shelter and put our boots and socks to dry in front of the fire and they would literally start steaming ! Well, the best socks always managed to keep our feet warm and dry, however wet and cold the conditions, and these Jeep Terrain Thermal Socks look like they'd really fit the bill.

The socks are made from a blend of 64% Acrylic, 24% Wool and 12% Polyester. They are quite thick as well as being thermal so if you're wearing them inside a centrally heated office, they might keep your feet a bit on the warm side. However, the Jeep brand is all about the outdoorsy adventurous lifestyle and they'd be ideal for outdoor pursuits of any description, even a spot of gentle gardening or Christmas shopping in the wind and rain !

The socks come in the typical men's sock colours of black, navy, khaki or denim (not real denim, just the colour !) and are discreet enough to go with everything, from work suits in the week to jeans and trainers at the weekend.
