Remember that weird aunt or distant relative who gave you a pair of socks for Christmas? Well, the sock world has changed and today everyone wants that goofy relative so they can get socks.
We have expanded our sock selection at The Good Sole. We have all kinds, all brands, colors, weights and sizes. We have ski socks, snowboard socks, hiking socks, hunting socks, running socks, casual socks, and of course – toe and flip flop socks.
One of the most intriguing socks is Columbia’s Omni Heat socks. There is a special reflector shield on this sock that helps our feet conserve heat to keep us warmer.
We carry Smartwool, Fits, Bridgedale, Columbia, Goodhew, Point 6, Dansko, Injinji, Thorlo and New Balance. So stop in and treat someone – or yourself - to some toasty comfortable socks this holiday season!

On the Sunday after Thanksgiving blue posters were left at the storefronts all around Taos Plaza.
The poster read:
Don’t Throw it away.
Buy it local. Keep it local.
For every $100 spent in a locally-owned independent store, $68 returns to the community through taxes, wages, donations and other expenditures. Spend that in a national chain, only $43 stay here. Spend it online and nothing comes home.
It’s a great poster and a serious reminder how we all need to support each other. Both The Good Sole and Taos Mountain Outfitters appreciate the local support we receive. I realize we sometimes don’t have every style or size for everyone, but most of the time we can do special orders and make you happy.
Have a great holiday season and be sure to join us at Taos Mountain Outfitters on Friday, Dec. 9 for our Santa Sleigh Ride from 4 to 6 p.m. There will lots of prizes and guaranteed fun!
And, thank you to whoever is behind the mystery poster on buying local. It is a real wake-up call for all of us!
