Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I've worn nothing but SmartWool cable crew socks for the past 3 years. They are the perfect weight for everyday wear through Fall, Winter, and Spring. I wear them everyday with my leather boots and they keep my feet comfortable all day long. They are very durable and it's amazing how the socks resist odors. If you're looking for a thick, cushy sock- keep looking. These are thin, lightweight 'dress' socks. With regard to scratchiness that other reviewers have mentioned, I don't feel any. I wear an 8.5 to 9 shoe, and I order a medium and they fit me perfect. With that said, I will second the reviewer who mentioned these socks do pill, and if you have cats that shed (like me), the socks seem to attract the fur. Nothing major. I just use a sweater comb and go over the socks when I think of it. Overall, these are great socks and I will continue to buy them.
