Review: MP Magic Socks pass the test of Las Vegas heat

The MP Magic Socks team reached out to me the other day and asked if I would be interested in testing out their odorless socks and writing a review about them.

The first thing I thought was, "Where were you a few weeks ago?" 

Earlier this summer, I went on a two-week trip to the Middle East and did several hours worth of hiking every day. On one of the first days of the trip, we hiked up Mt. Sinai and slept on the top of the mountain. I wore the same socks during the hike up, while sleeping that evening, and hiking down the mountain the next day. 

That was a bad idea. 

My socks smelled terrible when I finally got a chance to change them and it would have been nice to have some MP Magic Socks for that hike. 

But that was weeks ago. 

Fast forward to this week and the MP Magic Socks arrived at my door.

I don't know why, but for some reason I wasn't expecting them to be very comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they are extremely comfortable -- perhaps now the most comfortable socks I own. They're thin and very breathable, which I especially appreciate living in Las Vegas. 

I try to avoid being outside too much during the summer here but at least once a week I have to do some yard work, whether it is cutting the grass, weeding, trimming bushes, or a combination of all three.

Yesterday was a mild 100 degrees Fahrenheit so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to put the socks to the test in the Vegas heat. I worked in the yard for about an hour and drenched my socks in sweat. 

I didn't wash them after that, though. I left them on the floor in my room -- they still had another test to pass. 

Today I wore them to the gym for an hour workout. 

After a day in the Vegas heat and a day in a stinky gym, the socks were ready for the smell test. 

They passed! No stinky odor. 

I only put the socks through a two-day test but the MP Magic Socks team tells me they can go odorless up to six days without being washed. They are perfect socks for hiking, camping, or really any kind of outdoor activity. As I found out, they're great for working out indoors as well. 

They're not just for great for physical activity, though. The socks can be worn for everyday use, too! And if you're going to the airport or anywhere else where you need to take off your shoes, it's nice to know that your socks won't be stinky when exposed. 

I highly recommend these socks and their affordable prices. They start at under $10! With fall arriving and the Christmas season right around the corner, these socks would make great stocking stuffers. Get yours here.

BurgaBox review: Bronco Burga Feast draws A+ for taste


How would you like to eat like an NFL offensive lineman?

Denver Broncos center Matt Paradis and Vaynersports, the agency that represents Paradis, recently teamed up with BurgaBox to create The Bronco Burga Feast.

Here's Paradis and VaynerMedia CEO Gary Vaynerchuk announcing the burger earlier this month:


BurgaBox is a company that ships cheeseburger meals across the U.S. to those brave enough to take on an "over-the-top" burger. The Bronco Burga meal has been dubbed an "outrageous feast" by BurgaBox, which seems appropriate.
