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 North Face Dhaulagiri II GTX boots which I simply love and wish they were still on the market! I will use the shorter cosins of these type of smartwool socks with Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX shoes. I was worried about cushion and bought both medium and light, I now wish I had stuck with light because the medium are nice and warm!
