I received my shipment of 4 pair of socks this week. You might be wondering why I have purchased 7 pair of Pearly's, and I can tell you I now wear them to work every day, cycling and hiking. I'm the Shop Foreman at a Ford Dealership, and I'm walking on concrete floors 10 hours a day. I have always worn Smart Wool socks, because comfort is essential. I've been wearing your socks, even with the warm temperatures, I find they work great.
Got your note about sponsoring. I actually belong to two clubs. Orange County Wheelmen (OCW) here in Orange County California. We are the largest bicycle club here in Orange County, but we are primarily a road club. I'm the mountain bike director of OCW. We host the annual Amtrak Century, 1,200 riders from Irvine to San Diego every year.
The other club I belong to is Idyllwild Cycling, located in Idyllwild California and we are a mountain bike club and trail advocacy organization. We only sponsor one event a year, the Idyllwild Spring Challenge.
So, both of these events have occurred this year, and won't occur until 2016 again. Sponsorship is always, always, always appreciated. I don't know what you normally offer, money, products etc. so I'll leave that up to you.
Thanks again for selling such a great product. Do you think someday they will ever be offered in black? I really think you are short changing the product by marketing them a cold weather bicycling socks. I actually wear them when road and mountain biking, hot or cold weather. Believe it or not, I don't find them uncomfortable in warm weather. I intentionally worn them in 95 degree weather for a 5 hour ride, and my feet did not over heat.
