Surino Golf Socks: Like walking on air
This past Christmas at the big family get-together, I opened a pair of socks and heard myself say, “A new pair of socks just makes my day. One of life’s great small pleasures!”
Immediately upon uttering this, I suddenly felt very old, but that feeling was fleeting, as both of my college-aged nephews chimed in loudly with their complete agreement and support.
So now I’ll say it even more publicly: A new pair of socks can make you feel like a million bucks. And this is even more true on the golf course. Walking 18 holes early in the season can get your dogs barking so loudly that it’s hard to concentrate on your swing.
I recently received a pair of Surino Golf Socks, made in the USA by Kentucky Royalty out of a rich blend of merino wool and Suri alpaca fleece.
For you city-slickers, an alpaca is sort of a wooly llama, and, apparently, they’re about as soft as a bunny crossed with a duckling and spliced with a cumulus cloud.
Seriously, I have now worn and washed the Surino Golf Socks a half-dozen times, and they still feel as luxuriant as the first time I slipped them on.
The remarkable softness isn’t their only selling point, however. They are made with a cushioned toe and arch support, along with an absolutely brilliant extra-thick heel tab to keep your golf shoes from rubbing and your heel from blistering. Why don’t all golf socks have this feature?
Although the alpaca fleece lends a sort of yellowish tinge to the Surino Golf Sock, you simply cannot beat their comfort nor, from what I’ve seen, their durability. My nephews told me of a fellow student who does not wash his socks – he just purchases replacement pairs every other week so he can always experience the wonderment that is new socks.
Maybe I am getting old, because this kid sounds like a moron to me. Someone should tell him about Kentucky Royalty socks. It would save him (or, more likely, his parents) a lot of money.
