Back in November (right here, as a matter of fact), we brought you word of a campaign that was underway that was promising to deliver you socks that were comfortable, did all the necessary sock-related things, and ALSO managed to stay odor free. Since then, we’ve been able to spend time with a pair of the MP Magic Socks, and can give you our impressions.
The short answer is, yes, the MP Magic Socks work just as advertised. I found them to be decently padded (but not overly so), comfortable, and they did stay odor free. How did I test this? Well, that was easy enough – I just wore them for a week straight (five days in a row) to the gym, and at the end of that time, put them up to the ol’ sniffer.
So, at under $10 a pair, these are reasonable workout companions, particularly if you’re the sort to forget to clean out your gym bag. I will note that the pair I tested seemed to have an abnormally tall cut to them – taller than 1/4 socks, but shorter than calf-height. So, for me, they’re taller than I would prefer for the gym, but I do see a new design on their page that has a shorter cut to them that might be the ticket.
Time will tell how these hold up (and yes, they will be closely scrutinized against my regular Darn Tough 1/4 socks) over time. Though, at $48 for a 6-pack of socks, you can probably sink that cost to test it out. You can see those, and their other designs, directly at their website. mpmagicsocks.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
