Description

Yaks smell, your socks shouldn't.

SmartWool uses their long lasting blend of wool and nylon to make their Trekking Heavy Crew Sock as adventurous as you are. The sights and sounds of an exotic land should not be overshadowed by the smell of your socks. Arch support and padding aid in keeping foot muscles relaxed and protected during long trips. Wool has the ability to keep your feet warm and dry while the outside temperature goes from chilly to steamy. Foot funk and odors are naturally repelled for day after day on the trail. Wash these wooly socks in a stream and they'll be dry before you know it.

the real deal
The Real Deal

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

If you are looking for a sock that will ACTUALLY keep you warmer.... this is it. Living in a northern state my feet get cold! I have tried many "heavy duty" socks in the hopes that they would provide some extra warmth; none have made a difference.
But this sock really does the job! I have been wearing them twice a week in below 0 weather and I haven't had cold feet at all.
No wear or tear either! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Keep your feet dry, warm, and happy!

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

I bought these for a friend for the holidays and she is really happy with them. She commutes on foot in the middle of winter months and so I wanted to get something that would keep her feet warm.
Worn around the house they are so thick they almost have a slipper-like feel to them and will always keep your feet dry/warm.
I love SmartWool and these are one of their greatest products if you tend to run on the colder side.

Warmest socks around

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Hiking through deep snow is the best test of a pair of winter socks, and these pass all around. Durable, comfy and warm in the coldest of settings. Make sure you have room in your boots for them because they are a bit thick. If you're tired of having cold feet you won't be disappointed.

Super warm and durable

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

These are great socks for winter hiking. They fit true to size if you wear a liner underneath. They are fairly heavy, I would suggest the lightweight or PhD versions for summer hiking. These wick really well, and are plenty warm for winter hiking or even a day in the deerstand. I have put many miles on these, and they have held up well. You can machine wash these on cold cycle, but I recommend air drying, as I have had a few pairs shrink in the dryer. They will not shrink if air dried. If you have big boots, hike in cold weather, or want some super-warm socks, these are for you! Do make sure you have room in your boots for socks this thick, as they are really thick and pretty cushy!

Hiking and Mountaineering Miracle Socks

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

When many are complaining of cold and sore feet I'm always thankful for my SmartWool Trekking Socks. These heavy weight feet savers not only make my La Sportiva boots more comfortable but also add warmth and life to my feet. I've been using these socks for over four years now (not the same pair all the time) and they never seem to wear out.

More like trekking slippers

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

These socks are dense! Great for house slippers, for hiking, though, be sure to size your boots with extra room. In order to get such density, these socks do not fit snugly like most wool socks.
Materials 77% wool, 22% nylon. 1% elaetane.
Great hunting socks

Cold- meet heavy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have a pair of these and only use them for the coldest applications. that means -30 and below hikes, or coldwater drysuit diving. THey kill it for cold stuff. Size 12 fits into the large super well. Super warm, and nice and cushy!

The Best, No Contest

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

I am something of a sock connoisseur, so it means something when I say that these are the best socks I have ever owned. They are beautifully warm and comfortable to wear on a mountain or around the home (I'm wearing some right now). I only ever wash them on impulse, as they never smell or feel like they actually need washing unless you've been walking around somewhere greasy or muddy. They are rather thick though, so not much good if your boots are already too small.

Feet warm-Hear warm!!!

Nothing is better for my wife to have her feet warm

The one

Great socks. Keep the dogs warm, wick sweat, I use the heavyweight all year round for hiking, skiing, anything outside. Only complaint is that it seems like the heels wear out fairly quickly, but that may be due to wearing them almost constantly.

Excellent!

I'm getting 2+ years out of these socks. Wick moisture and stay soft even on long days. Worth the $$$.

Responded on

Good point. I will update it. Just used them sunday on a climb in my TNF S6K boots, stayed warm and dry.

Would these work well inside fishing waders...

Posted on

Would these work well inside fishing waders in the winter? I've had a few pairs of SmartWool in the past, but they have either shrunken up or gotten stretched out. I haven't found a pair that doesn't do one or the other. I need a pair for winter fishing as well as a pair for summer fishing with potential for a few miles and full days on my feet.

Best Answer Responded on

I would say ABSOLUTELY! These are great for staying warm and being on your feet all day. I have worn them on long winter hikes, as well as spring day hikes.
For the past 4 months, I have only had 3 pairs of socks. One of them is the Heavy Trekking SmartWool. Even with constant use, I have not experienced any stretching. I hand wash and air dry all of my wool clothes to avoid shrinkage.
Give them a shot!

My go-to socks

I've been backpacking for over ten years, and SmartWool have always been my #1 choice for socks. I've used these trekking socks for month long trips on the Olympic peninsula, the Wasatch range, Southern Utah as well as on various cold-weather sailing trips. They are very comfortable and are great for regulating the temperature of your feet given their merino wool makeup. They dry super quickly as well, which is great for some mid-trip washing. They also won't hold all that lovely foot odor. Fit true to size.

Perfect insulated sock for warm feet!

Great sock for camping, hiking, and anyone who suffers cold feet!
The smartwool worked fantastic keeping my feet dry and warm.
I have used them when I ski as well, but be advised, they are very thick.
These worked so well, I bought some for my whole family.

Great mountain sock!

I always keep an extra pair of the Trekker weight socks in my pack. They wick well, insulate nicely, don't stink, and stay in place pretty well. One of Smartwool's best socks!

Christmas Gift

I gave these to my sons two Christmases ago and they have truly enjoyed using these socks. They hold up well and feel great. They requested this gift again.

The best of the best!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought my first two pairs of these in 1999. Wore them daily to work in sub-zero temps. Feet stayed warm even at 39 degrees below 0. Finally wore them out in 2008. If you want the best of the best for your feet, SmartWool makes them.

Good to know! I will be getting these next winter

the sock

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

All i can say is that after wearing my first pair of these socks in the cold, I replaced all my winter socks with these. They fit nice and snug and they don't crawl down and bunch up. They don't retain an odor or let your feet get cold.

WOW , from North Dakota

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

WOW, I mean it. I am very picky about socks, since I don't like to wear them. These are my first pair of wool socks and thick socks. My feet felt very comfortable in lace up boots and regular boots. My feet never got cold in 15-30F while working outdoors working construction wearing regular leather boots. My feet did sweat a little, but no odor. The price is worth the wear.

Good Sock

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I wore these socks in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area with neoprene knee high wading boots. I am sure my feet were sweating but I didnt feel it at all, and they didnt get all nasty. I think these socks helped a great deal. I will be buying these again and again.
