Kentwool Socks Guarantee

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Two years ago, based on MGS member comments of Kentwool socks, I decided to splurge and buy the Kentwool Tour Profile socks.  They had a sale so the sticker shock wasn't too bad.  Since then I have purchased more Kentwool socks and love them.  I can see why they are the preferred socks of tour caddies.  I won't wear anything else.

 

I decided on my last purchase that I needed a pair of pink socks; don't ask!  I have worn them only a few times this spring, and on Monday I wore them with my True Linkswear Game Changer Pro shoes when I walked 18 holes with my buddies.  I don't normally walk 18 holes in these shoes; just ride in a cart, but I did walk in them last fall with MyGolfSpys Tim and Dave in California and had no problem.  When I got to #9 on Monday, I started to feel a blister forming on my left heel, and by the time I finished 18, I had a good one.  I also noticed that the heel of both socks was starting to pill.  This has never happened before.  

 

I remembered that on the Kentwool website they have a "no blister" guarantee, so I sent them an email.  Kentwool Customer Service responded the next day and they are sending me a new pair of pink Tour Profile socks.  I am impressed!  Great socks and a company that stands behind their guarantee.

I've never tried Kent but everyone seems to say the same. Guess I need to try a pair one day.

Now if they'd claim more distance and straighter ball flight I'd order some today!

I'm in the minoritry I guess.  After visiting their booth at the PGA I came away so impressed with the product and more so the people.

 

I ordered a supply and have worn them a few times.  I will say they are very comfortable, but I must have an odd foot, as I have problems with them staying in place in my two main pair of golf shoes.   I have spoken to many others and they don't have this issue at all, just seems to be me.   They are a bit thicker than the normal golf socks i wear (UA low profile) so I'm not sure if it's just me not getting used to something new or what.

 

I do still wear them from time to time on weekends with my Puma Spikeless, as I know I won't have to deal with the slippage for 18 holes.

Wait for one of their sales.  The Tour series are thicker than the 19th hole Fashion socks.  I thought they would be too warm in our hot summers, but I like them.

I thought so too on the too warm, but after hearing the backstory to them, and hearing that it's the preferred wool supplier to the US Army, I wasn't too concerned.   I have had no issues with the comfort of them.  I had meant to buy some of the 19th hole ones (I ordered some for my boss, but not myself) so I'll have to do that.

Best socks ever but only wish they made a true white version, don't get why they do cream/ beige color instead, looks too weird with white golf shoes

Not surprised by their response. Great people there and an excellent product.

Seconded...not much experience with them yet, but I have heard many great things about their customer service.

Kenny, had the exact same problem. With the Game Changer Pros...check the heels of those shoes, they started to wear in the heel and tore up ALL my socks.

I agree that the heel of the Game Changer Pro is different than previous Trues.  My heel is pretty narrow and the shoe is sort of rounded.  They are still comfy, but I only wear them now while riding. My walking shoes are the True Motion spikeless since I got two pair for $80 in the sale last month.  No problems walking in them.

I agree. I'm not big on cream colored socks.
