    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.

    Comfy and Burly

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

    Was looking for some thick socks for when it gets a wee bit nipply and these are just the remedy. Smart wool is hard to beat when it comes to socks to adventure in. These feel really really good. It's like I put two teddy bears on my feet and they are giving me a cuddly bear hug. Highly recommended!!!

    Great heavy hiking sock.

    This sock is perfect if you are going somewhere that you have to leave trails behind. Any time I go hunting with my family these are the go to socks for me, my two brothers and my dad. Wear these with some gaiters and you will never have to worry about discomfort from moisture or unwanted debris getting in your boots when you are in the think of things. I wear size 11-11.5 socks and shoes in most brands and the LARGE was perfect for me.

    Overall great heavy duty socks that are great for hiking off trail or in cold weather. Every adventurer should have at least a couple pairs of these ready to go.

    Keeps me warm at night

    I bought these socks to keep my feet warm during cool weather camping (night time temps of ~15-30 deg F). They are super comfy and keep me toasty. I'm a very cold sleeper but they're up to the challenge. I haven't really worn these with shoes (except to go pee in the middle of the night) so I can't speak to that functionality. I wear a women's 6.5 or 7 shoe and the small fits perfectly.

    No other hiking sock needed

    • Size Bought: L

    I hike and backpack with SmartWool Trekking Heavy Crew Socks and I never use a liner or any other gimmicky apparatus in my boot. I never get blisters. I've tried other wool socks and they just do not perform as well.

    Toasty & Comfortable

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I was looking for a couple sturdy wool socks for hiking as well as for wearing with boots during the winter. I really liked the brand Wigwam, but since Backcountry doesn't carry these, I went with another sock brand I trust: Smartwool. I have been very impressed with their ski socks, so I decided to try their wool hikers as well. I have only worn them a couple of times but they are really toasty, and due to the length of the pile on the inside (yarn that faces your foot) they are also really cushy. I agree with another previous reviewer though, they are thick enough that you should wear these with shoes that are roughly a half size to a full size bigger than you normally wear.

    I am not saying that I am a sinner, but I never thought I'd get to walk in the clouds. These Smartwools are like walking on a cushion of air, a cushion that keeps you dry and warm. These are better than a lot of slippers I have worn! I have bought Smartwool for years and never realized what I was missing. Killer on the mountain, awesome on the street. Treat your feet!

    Very Warm

    • Size Bought: Medium

    This is a nice, thick pair of socks. Be sure to account for their extra volume because your boots will feel tighter. To me they seemed to fit slightly large/loose, but still completely wearable. I wear size 7.5 sneakers and I got the mediums as per the size chart. Looking forward to some winter hiking in the Adirondacks with these.

    Umm.. Wow.

    Alright, so I'm not active, let's get that out in the open. I got these to wear in the winter because I suffer from Reynaud's Syndrome in my toes and they will get cold and turn white even if the rest of my body feels fine. Trust me, it's a terrible feeling and I wish it upon no one. These socks are SO DARN WARM and provide an amazing cushion for my feet. They are VERY thick and definitely require shoes that are .5-1 size bigger than what you would wear with "normal" socks. For reference, I am a female with size 9.5 feet and I got these in a medium, they fit perfectly!

    Smartwool; what else is there to say?

    Best socks ever. I've been wearing Smartwool Trekkers for about 14 years now, from the blazing hot flightdeck of an aircraft carrier, to the glaciers of Patagonia, to the jungles of Honduras, and they've never let me down.

    Average socks.

    I've read all the stellar reviews of these socks and, indeed, it is part of the reason I ordered them. I live way up in the Rockies and we spend lots of time in the snow in winter and ranching (workboots) in the summer. I've always relied on heavyweight, dense weave wool ragg socks over the years. But such dense weave socks don't seem to be available anymore (I've been looking without success for some time). So I ordered several pair of these. I find them to be merely *OK*. That's it, really. They are reasonably comfortable, but they do not stay up all that well. They could be better served by being a slight bit taller with better elastic at the top of the sock. They are reasonably warm, but I wouldn't call them better than those old wool ragg socks that are unfortunately wearing out. I find that threads also pull on these fairly easily. Not sure what all the fanfare is about. These will do, but I'd be happy to find something better.

    I made an attempt to buy these socks from smartwool but they never got to us because their website is slow and it turned out they were sold out. Never got the news until weeks later. So thankfully, Backcountry had plenty and I received my socks right away! These socks live up to all the great reviews and so, I am buying more right now.

    Cozy and WARM

    These are my favorite winter socks for work and play in the snow. I love wearing them around the house in the winter too! After 15 or so wears/washes they are doing better than my other wool socks as far as holding up.

    For the right occasion, it rocks

    Smart wool makes so many socks with so many names who can begin to keep track of 'em. IMO, their "Trekking Heavy" is about their heaviest sock - at least that I have tried. Normally I would NEVER want a sock this heavy. However, this serves the PERFECT purpose for me. I have an old, used to the max pair of backcountry ski boots with trashed liners. While I buy the latest and greatest jackets and pants, I'm too cheap, or at least don't see the point, to invest in new boot liners. Hey, nobody sees them so why invest good $$? Anyhow, these socks provide a great extra cushioning and fill for old liners. They can extend the life for, well, in my case, years. And on top of that they are just rad socks in that at the end of the day your feet feel great and there is no totally obnoxious stick. If you like to hike around in warm, heavy socks, get these. Or if you are like me and want to keep from spending mucho $$ on new liners, get these. In either case you will be pleased.

    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

    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!

    Would these socks be good to use in a three season mountaineering boot. Looking for a socks that will give me enough padding and support but not just roast my feet

    I have a pair of these.. but I only use them in the winter. They do have great padding and comfort, however I find them to be too warm from late Spring to early Fall. They are definitely too heavy and warm for the typical 3 season temps (40F-80F+).

    Are you going to be doing high altitude mountaineering?

    Best Answer

    Ryan,

    I agree with Eli: they're a little warm for summer months. Check out the Icebreaker mid crew sock (http://www.backcountry.com/icebreaker-hike-mid-crew-sock-mens) for something with a little (less) cushion that you won't cook in. I own a light crew pair and love them, and other reviewers have said they outlast smartwool by a longshot (and they're cheaper, to boot).

    Happy trails!

    Best Answer

    The SmartWool Heavy Crew Trekking socks are a great choice for three seasons plus light to medium winter use. I always wear them with a silk or polypro liner. For cold winter activities, an insulated boot is your best insurance against cold feet plus a heavier sock. I wear a pair of boiled wool Dachsteins for snowshoeing. Here's more information:
