Here's a question... I looked at Kmart, and discovered that they don't
carry nylon dress socks above the 11-13 (sock) size, which handles up to
about size 12 feet. Since I wear size 13 shoes when I'm not hiking, they
don't do me much good. Has anyone know of an equivalent source that comes
in an extra large size (sock size 13-15)?
