Bought for hiking trip

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I hiked 18 miles (in Chicago) as a trial for a planned hiking trip in New Zealand (Milford Trek) which spans 33 miles over 5 days. I felt very comfortable with these socks; you will want a sock liner to use with these type of wool socks, planning to use these with Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX shoes and the longer cousins of these type of smartwool socks with a pair of North Face Dhaulagiri II GTX boots which I simply love and wish they were still on the market!
