    Great socks

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    We give out smartwools socks as the perfect "stocking stuffer" gifts for Christmas. And everyone loves to get these socks. these are comfortable, keep your feet warm, without causing a lot of sweating and heat rash. And the extra padding means you can wear them for a long hike or for a day at the office.

    Three seasons

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I bought a total of seven pair thee years ago. I'm a roof inspector in Florida and I hike the PCT yearly. I wear these with Danner Acadia's, Lite Hikers and RAT boots. This week I've had to retire two pair as they have worn through just above the heel.. The Loam color did not seem to last as long as the charcoal grey (not available here), just an observation. I can't say enough good things about SmartWool. If you are still wearing cotton you owe it to yourself to own a pair of these socks. You'll never go back to cotton socks again. Highly recommend.

    good lightweight sock

    • Fit:True to size

    Picked up a few pairs of these on sale at s&c last spring to keep my feet cool with my muck boots for work and wore them most days last field season. No sock can wick all the sweat away inside a rubber boot, but these did a quite satisfactory job. I'd recommend them, especially if you find them on sale.

    Great Socks

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I have used these socks mainly for day hikes lasting about 4-5 hours and they are great. These socks are light weight which is nice for the Utah heat in the summer time and they are very comfortable, I even wear these socks with my normal everyday shoes. These are my new go-to sock for day hikes, but if you are going on longer multiple day backpacking trips I would recommend that you go with a thicker version of this sock.

    It's Never Too Late to Learn "the Way"

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    For me it's either Smartwool or Darn Tough socks in my sock drawer, and it's been that way for a few years now. Fortunately, the once resonant shame of all those white tube socks from times past is all but a fidgety memory...



    Smartwool socks--compared to Darn Tough (DT)--are slightly more stretchy in my experience, but they are a bit more comfortable than their rivals. Besides being comfy with some stretch, they're breathable when it's hot, and cozy warm when it's cold. AND...they'll keep your feet warm when wet: Imagine you've just stepped through some thin ice into shin-deep water and you're still a few hours from camp--this type of situation can turn grim quickly, so wear some wool and have the upper'foot'.



    SEEM PRICEY?: Yeah, they're $18/pair, but once you own 'em, you'll understand why they're called "smart" and You Will Notice The Difference. Still not convinced? Well, try to think smartphone versus flip-phone and then apply that logic to your feet...yeah, like I was saying, it's a no-brainer.

    Light?

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    These are my go to socks for everyday wear, whether teaching or hiking. I don't know if i would consider them light, but they are definitely comfortable and wick well. I wear a 12 and the large fits perfect. The only beef with them is the heel and ball of the foot areas tend to wear out sooner than i think they should- especially for almost $18- watch for a sale!

    Too tight at top , no give at calf

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs small

    Had to split with a pair of scissors to wear, too constructive at calf, the foot portion was okay, wore kayaking in Blackstone Bay in Alaska. if you have a muscular calf, these are not for you . My husband couldn't wear his either so now we have 4 pairs that are split to the ankle

    Favorite socks

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I finally wore out all the Smartwool light hikers I have had for like 10 years! The new ones fit even better than the old ones. These are definitely not cheap socks, but you get what you pay for. What you won't get is blisters. I probably have at least 12 pairs of different Smartwool socks or varying ages. If you have never tried the brand, you're depriving yourself.

    This sounds like a dumb question, but if you buy one quantity, is it a pair of socks? or is each sock 17 dollars? cuz everytime i turn around, it puts 2 quantity for the socks in my cart and it's throwin me off

    I am trying to decide which sock would be best for me. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between these liners and the regular SmartWool Hiking Crew Sock?

    I have just started walking trails and light hiking and am getting serious about what I wear in socks and shoes. If my shoe size runs between 11 1/2 and 12, which size in socks should I get, large or extra large? Thanks for your help.

    do you have smartwool socks in medium size?...

    do you have smartwool socks in medium size? I want 5 pair but they only seem to be in small size.

    would these socks work well as inner liner socks with other socks over them for long distance hiking?
