Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:Runs small

My 7yo is super picky about his socks and he LOVES these. They're very soft, but you need to allow for shrinkage. We bought a large for our 7yo boy. His shoe size is a 3. We went back for seconds!

My son is 11 years old and wears a size 7 shoe . What size should I get?

Best Answer

Hey Scott,

He's already outgrown even the large in the kid's size. By the time you allow for shrinkage, you want to go up to a Men's small.



    These are great socks, easy on and off, they are a little thicker than I expected and they do shrink in the dryer. I just buy a size larger to prepare for them shrinking.



      Wow. Amazing socks. Easy to put on and rake off. Just don't put them in the dryer.


      Warm and Dry

        After my 3 yr old son came home all red he was so cold and wet I invested in these and other wonderful warm and dry socks, and he's been a happy camper ever since!

        great socks

          My daughter loves them on our hikes, even wears them for everyday walks.


          Great socks for hiking!

            I like SmartWool's hiking socks, but a bit expensive.
            As my foot is relatively small, I ordered socks for kids which is a bit cheaper than adults' socks.
            It's best fit and there was no problem.

            From now, I'll order kids' socks for my hiking.


            Great socks!

              Great cushioning and keeps very warm. I love that it's wool, yet I can just throw it into the washing machine together with the rest of the laundry.

              SmartWool Hiking Light Crew Sock - Kids'

                My daughter has no complaints about these socks, and no complaints from her equals no complaints from me! Just remember not to put them in the dryer on high heat- unless you WANT them to shrink.


                Great for colder weater

                  Loved them for warm to cold weather. But they did not breath well in hot weather hiking.


                  love these

                    These are perfect for the little man (or lady) that enjoys the outdoors. They do not slide off like so many kids socks!


                    warm & comfy

                      It's great that these socks come in different sizes, they fit great and they keep my feet super warm!



                        I like sheep. Because they gave me these socks! Nice and soft, great cushion, and insulates well! Even when soaking wet! (From personal experience)

                        The denim socks look different than the other two colors. Are they shorter, as pictured, or hit mid calf as described?Thank you!

                        Same sock, different photo. Backcountry often has different photos depending on the color shown. Sometimes it may be because they haven't got around to taking their own shots and are using the stock images. Or they were taken at different times. It's funny though how the appeal can change based on how the product is displayed (hence models being pretty people).

                        did i order the adult siz socks?

                        did i order the adult siz socks?

                        Well if you ordered the socks pictured above you got the kids version but has a great return policy. Give them a call maybe they haven't shipped out yet.


                        HIGHLY RECOMMEND

                          These are the best socks ever -- adult or children. Not too heavy, but cushioned enough for hiking. Excellent with sandals, too. They last and last, wash and dry easily, and are good and stretchy -- no lumps or bumps!!
