Thanks again!

lol even synth blend socks suck, spend the extra bucks on some merino socks. i wear them all the time when its cold out as they are so comfy, so you definetly get the use out of them whether you use em for boarding or not.

Actually im moving to only weraing merino socks as they seem to be the only cure for my stinky sweaty feet.

As far as goggles, Scott and Bolle actualy make half decent ones for cheap, not the coolest looking but they work better than sun glasses and dont fog up to much Bolle Mojo Ski Goggle, 88758 | Snow Sport Goggles | Snow Sports | GEAR | items from Campmor.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Just picked up a couple styles of merino Wool socks.

I'm Borrowing my bros goggles he got from a friend. How do I figure out what model of oakleys they are if I don't have the box? Or is there a thread where i can post them up and ppl can identify them? My bro lost the packaging sometime last year.

Oakleys are a solid brand what ever goggle you have will probably be fine. But if you really want to find out try and see if there's any thing specific to that goggle or any thing that you could name and try to google them.

Unfortunately there is nothing I can see in terms of wordmarks or print. The graphics are sketched grey skulls on a white frame. And grey skills on a black and red band....
