    I havent worn UPS issue socks in a while but lately we have had some apperance issues. I cant believe how pricey these things are.

    Well, yeah they are expensive, but I've had pairs of socks last as long as 4 months.

    Their new style socks suck. The glued on UPS logos fall off the first day.

    Very high quality...some of the labels last almost 2 washes!

    I did buy the Cintas 1/4 socks off the UPERS.com link last Spring. And unlike most of you, mine have held up and still have the Logos on them. I do admit that I went against my own advice concerning shoes, I have worn a pair of lightweight Rockport Hiking shoes all summer instead of a low cut work boot. They are comfortable, but not waterproof at all. The top of the shoe doesn't touch the logo, so its not knocked off. They have faded out a lot, and are way over-priced. I think that the company should furnish us with socks, with a shoe allowance, should be in the contract. And shoe polish too! I have to dig it out of the supply cage, they don't put it in the shoeshine racks here anymore.:bored:

    UPSBOI You don't want to know!

    I have a pair of hiking shoes that I wear when the forecast is dry, and another pair that is goretex for when it is raining. Also, as far as the shoes go, that is a tax deduction, since it is work related. Also, laundry is a deduction if you do it at home, or at a laundry.
