Any of the Swiftwick socks would be a terrific gift. This amazing made in the USA sock has all different lengths and designs. The trademark color for most swiftwick socks has been black. Recently the color options are exploding. The new styles totally pop. These stripes are one example. The are super bold and sharp. This adds some great color to an amazing product. I have always enjoyed wearing Swiftwick running and biking. Now with the new styles I also wear them to business meetings and with a suit. The all around comfort is always a plus.
