Fox River Socks are some of my favorite for working out, hiking, and everyday wear. They have a ton of cuts and styles available, making them the perfect stocking stuffer for that eventual pair of socks that everyone gets.

These are my favorite sneakers, hands down. I wear them every day! Barefoot-inspired, super comfortable, and they look great with just about anything.
