The Smartwool Experiment

Charting the wear and tear on four pairs of Smartwool socks.

No discount, no Smartwools.

Today’s installment of Readers Write In is from Lindsey (a.k.a. zinco ninco) who wrote to me about her Smartwool experience after I cross-posted my video of The Smartwool Song on Flickr.

When I first got hooked on Smartwool’s, I worked for an outdoor gear store and got an employee discount on them. I loved them enough to recommended them to every customer who walked in our doors. After I discovered how fast they wore out, I was still able to personally justify the price because of my employee discount. But when I stopped working there, I also stopped buying Smartwools. I expect to pay good money for good products, dammit!

I can’t even imagine how many Smartwools I’d have in my drawer if I’d at anytime received more than a 20% off coupon on them.  Thanks for sharing your story with me/us Lindsey (and thanks again for StumblingUpon the site earlier this week)!
