Wear them around the store.  It is important especially with your chosen socks (which, as we discussed initially, should be Colorado’s best compression socks– PODsox!)  If you have the time, try to test out your sock and footwear choice prior to hitting the trails.  You may regret  not doing this if you get blisters!  This would severely ruin just about any trip.
