Those customers who are unsure of which socks to buy are advised to buy the Below 30 pair as they are much comfortable and softer due to the Merino wool that they are made from. Although the Below 40 and Below 50 socks will you keep you warmer inside but they were originally designed to be worn outside as rugged socks in boots. So know your usage before you buy Icelandic wool socks.
