SmartWool used a soft blend of merino wool and synthetic fibers in the PhD Snowboard Medium Sock. Midweight merino wool traps heat so your toes won't freeze inside your boots while blended synthetics get rid of excess moisture and provide energizing compression right where you need it.

  • Merino wool blended with nylon and spandex helps regulate temperature, manage moisture, and provide gentle compression
  • RilaWool technology uses reinforced panels for longer-lasting impact protection around your calves, heels, and toes
  • 4-Degree Elite Fit system uses two different elastics for extra flexibility and focused compression
  • Strategically placed ventilation zones get rid of overheated air
  • Flatlock toe seams are tough without creating hot spots inside your boots

Horrible rash

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I tried on the sock for size for less than a minute and got a horrible rash over the area that required medical treatment. Very disappointed.

They Keep My Feet Nice And Toasty

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

These socks are very warm and great at keeping moisture from building up. I can wear them 4/5 times before I can detect any sort of foot order beginning to stick. Definitely a plus! Oh the other hand, the fabric has balled up a little and they don't look as nice as when i first got them last season. They may not look as good, but they still perform every bit as well as when I first bought them!

Amaze-balls

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

Great price, kept my feet dry through 3 hour sessions. Buy these. And super comfy! Also they don't have the weird compression part on the top that other socks do that will really squish your calf when in your boot.

Awesome socks

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

I wear these snowboarding for 8 hour days in the single digits and stay warm all day. They have thickness where you need them and it's thin where you want it to be. They keep you warm but not sweaty.

Great socks, perfect length

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These will become my favorite winter socks. Perfect length for me, I've got large calves and I need a sock that gets to the knee or else they end up at the ankles. These fit the bill perfectly. Wore them snow blowing yesterday and ice skating today and they were perfect for both. Nice and cushy on the feet and plenty warm. I'll be ordering more of these soon.

Nice socks

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These socks are a fair bit thicker than my other smartwool ski/snowboard socks but mostly in the leg and not the foot (which I think is good for boot fit). Haven't worn them a lot yet and nervous about the thickness on a long day of riding but hopefully they give me some extra warmth without jamming up my boot.

Smartsocks to wear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My feet tend to sweat a lot in my boot which causes numb toes on cold days if the sock does not wick well. These wick amazingly and keep my feet dry all day long. These are my go to socks for all types of conditions in the resort and work really well for touring also. I also use these for ice climbing and they never produce any hot spots when approaching long climbs.

Best snowboard socks I've ridden with.

Weight is perfect in nearly all conditions. They stay put and are the perfect height. Hard to knock anything about these guys!

Really Good Sock!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have worn these 2 full seasons of snowboarding and I can honestly say they are the best I've ever used. I have worn Volcom, Burton, Ride and several other brands all of which I have worn through the sole/toes and stretched out the elastic in the calf area. NOT these. They are constructed very well. I haven't even begun to wear through the sole/toe and the elastic not only in the calf, but everywhere, is still as tight as it ever was. Not to mention, I am a woman and have cold-proned feet and that hasn't been a problem since I started wearing my SmartWool. Not even on the coldest of days!I most certainly recommend these to any/everyone!

Great mid winter sock

I've taken these bad boys in a lot of different weather thus far this season. They're great for new boots your still packing in because they give you padding without smushing your toes. I've taken them through thigh deep powder without ever feeling cold. Wicked happy with them on. Also they fight the smell of a first to last lift day quite well, obviously that changes with the potency of each person.

Warm, ideal padding, no pressure points.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Title says it all. These are pretty much my favorite socks ever. (I have Smartwool socks that are 8+ years old that are still great). Just enough cushion without feeling bulky. Warm enough for single digit temps, wicking enough for warmer days (although look into a lightweight version for springtime if your feet tend to get sweaty).

Comfy, warm, and lasts years! These socks are great!
