Excellent socks. I walk around all day at work, in ANY normal socks I would always have aching feet ready to take my shoes off when I get home. These are the second socks after X-socks Carving Ultralights that completely took that away. Although these are even better, The moisture management of these socks is incredible, even in the X-socks, my Shoes for Crews are terrible with breathing, after working all night, and walking home in rain gear during moderate-heavy downpour, kicking through puddles, my feet were so dry I didn't notice until hours later that the inside of my Shoes for Crews is even still moist from my feet sweating, I can't wait to get Gore-Tex shoes to compliment these! I also don't even have a concern with taking my shoes off right away because they are so comfortable. I highly recommend these socks to anyone who expects to be on their feet for 10 or more hours a day, or even on their feet for a couple days in a row. And to complete the review: of course the odor resistance provided by the merino wool is great!
