Huge wools socks

21 posts in this topic

I've got a friend of a friend who's looking for huge wool socks. He's 6'10" and has proportionally (ridiculously) large feet. Anyone know where he can get wool socks for size 23 feet? I'd guess it'd be something like XXXXL sized socks...

23?!?!? Cripes, I have known some big dude and only seen up to size 18. That's enormous.

I hear that in the woods of the northwest there is a creature with feet like that. I bet if you find him he'll gladly borrow your friend a pair of his socks.

Yikes! My kid is a size 16 so I know what a problem it can be to find big sizes but 23..Holy Moly! Only thing I can think of is find some Granny who is willing to break out the knitting needles.

Im guessing wool socks in a 23 will have to be custom made. The biggest I ever saw were xxxl.

NL, I thought you wear size 23??

Find someone who knits. A family friend used to knit heavy/tall ones for us and they are great.

Scoot, does he have hunting boots in a 23? If so, contact the company, they might know who makes socks that big. I only wear a 14 and know how much of a problem it is to find footwear and socks, let alone a 23. I started using under armor socks this winter I really liked them.

Thanks for all of your responses-- I figured I'd get a mixed bag of responses to this one! I don't actually know the guy- he's a friend of a friend who I've never met before.

My one follow up question is- does anyone out there have a couple sheep you'd like to donate? grin

who is the company in Ely that makes the Muclucks? It's Will Steiger isn't it? Maybe this guy could invest in a pair of those. From what I have heard, they are extremely warm and comfortable, not sure about waterproof however.....

I will keep looking around tonight, nothing else to do

You could always find four wool socks. Have someone stitch two of them together and you have two pairs of socks.

And they say there is no sasquatch?!?!

Another option would be to call Shaq and see where he gets his.

Talk to the Brainerd Chamber, maybe they can contact Paul Bunyon. What about snow shoes with some blankets wraped around them?!

Google Stephan Marbury's shoe store. He has many HUGE sizes at his store and may have a place you can get wool socks.

Northlander, I must be doing something wrong with the search-- all I can find is info about the punk NBA player who's with the Celtics. I can't find a shoe store by that name... What am I doing wrong?

Yes thats it Im sorry. E-mail them and I bet they can find ya socks in that size. Shack has to get them some place.

I just checked the site and its poor at best. He had a store where he sold BIG shoes etc. but I cant find any info on it.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
