#209 Odd Socks

This is a warning to those considering on-line shopping for socks.

I recently took up a special offer from Rapha for 3 for the price of 2 pairs of merino wool socks. These are special because the inside ankle area of the right sock is reinforced to withstand dirt and chain abrasion (it says here) as opposed to the left, which is not.

Anyway, I received the 3 pairs. My first pair is ok as you see from the pic but the second pair is made up of two lefts and the third pair is two rights - no wonder they were discounted. . . . . . . .
