The best part of hiking, walking, running, biking, and plain ol' getting outside is how it makes you feel, both physically and mentally. The worst part is sweaty, stinky feet; the ultra-thin SmartWool Women's PhD Outdoor Ultra Light Mini Sock is designed to keep you focused on the best part. The mini cuff provides ankle coverage without going too slippery-low or hot-high.

Wear them everyday
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
From hiking to biking to running around town, these socks keep my feet dry and happy (and not smelly!).
Style and comfort
Light, thin, but oh so comfortable. One of the best sock choices out there for everyday and activities. They look good too!

I almost exclusively wear SmartWool socks because I know that they do an excellent job and keeping my feet dry and last a really long time.
I gave these particular pair as a gift, but own several of the men's version in all different thicknesses.
The Ultra Lights are really, really thin. It almost surprised me that they could get away with a sock like this as it doesn't feel like much at all.
Well that was before I put them on. You can hardly notice them once they're on. For biking or skating, or whenever I need the most sensitivity from a sock, I'll slip these on.
Even with being ultra light, they still hold up great to the toughest abuse.
