Wear the Icebreaker Hiker Mid Crew Socks during your long, cool-weather hikes for comfort and warmth.

Wore on a 5 mile hike in the pouring rain, kept my feet warms, fit great with my hiking boots. I plan to buy more.
Huge fan of wool socks and these are my new favorites. Definitely buying more.
This is the sock that was worn for two days.
One new and one used (2 days)
The sock in new condition on the left and the sock after two days of very light home use.
Alternative to Smartwool
In the last year or so my wife and I have switched to SmartWool. We saw a couple pairs of these on sale so my wife gave them a try. They are very good socks and seem to be extremely durable.
They tend to run a little big. She normally wears mediums but had to buy smalls.
Good socks for light hiking
Even though these are billed as midweight, they are more like lightweight in Smartwool terms. Top of foot has small amount of cushion. If you want to use these for long distance backpacking carrying more than 30 pounds wearing heavy duty boots, you should go with heavier weight Icebreaker or Smartwool midweight hiking socks. But if you want to use these for day hiking or fastpacking, then these are great. These are also more tightly woven than Smartwool, so they feel like they should last longer. Finally, make sure to check sizing charts. I usually wear Medium in smartwool, but for these I had to go down to Small, and they are still a bit large.
