The real thing...
I initially got into Smartwool socks when I started trail running. I wanted to make sure I had good foot care and a solid wicking fabric on my feet for those long trail runs. Smartwool did the trick!
I now use these socks for both road and trail running as well as just everyday use. They are cool/warm dry and comfortable. I own about 6 pairs at this point and will continue to grab some when they pop up on sale! ;-)
The fit around the toes and ankle are very comfortable. I'll put these to extreme use this summer in a summer trail ultra and we'll see if I can stand by this review after that. My guess is "Yes, definitely".
