Great Socks

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

These socks are some of the softest and most comfortable I have worn. They wick the sweat away from my feet and don't stink much. When I got some snow in my boot, the socks continued to insulate and keep my feet warm. The size is pretty much right on - order according to your shoe size. I like these better than the Thorlo's I have, and I actually really like those. I have only worn these on one backpacking trip, and they don't show much wear.

Sock it to me.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

These socks are comfy, durable, and fit great. Favorite socks of all the socks in the world. I've been wearing stoic socks for a few years now and I still have my first pairs and they are still in the rotation just starting to thin out a bit after a ton of wear.

Great value and comfort

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

I've used these daily for at least 2 years now. I was initially a little put off by the reviews saying they wore fast, but it took me until a couple weeks ago to see them wearing through. And even with that, they're still very comfortable.

I'm on my feet at work from 7:30 to 6:30 or 7:00 and never have issues with discomfort with these socks, and when my supposed waterproof tevas leak, these remain comfortable.

They don't get a day off, either. I use them when hiking or hunting, unless I'm wearing a heavier boot that requires a heavier boot sock.

Bottom line, buy some if you want some comfortable socks!

Stoic socks rock.

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

I love all my Stoic socks. I recently bought the "hiking" socks and they are perfect for of course hiking. But I mainly use them in the winter for running. With these, I don't have a gap between my tights and low cut or no show socks. And they don't come up too high on the calf to make running in them too warm.

Great out of the box, but...

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

I have bought many pairs of these socks over the years on S&C, both the low cut and hiker versions. They are fantastic feeling - perfect padding, highly breathable, not too stinky. The downside is that they wear out at the back of the ankle/upper heel long before the rest of the sock is ready to die. So they never last very long.

I'd skip this one

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs small

These socks perform ok, but they became very worn very quickly on the back and bottom of the heel and the ball of the foot. Also, the are not very stretchy, which makes them very hard to put on. Maybe if you sized up it would work out, but these are definitely the socks I find left in my drawer when I've slacked on getting laundry done.

Perfect fit.

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

I love these socks. The fit is perfect. Can you believe a "R" and "L" sock? Still a perfect fit after washing. No wrinkles to cause blisters.

A good sock

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

Not many frills like the SmartWool PhDs I often wear, but waaaay cheaper. Snug fitting, so no sag on the leg. Good stitch placement; can't feel them. Cool aesthetic elements for when the shoes come off. Good all around sock for 4 seasons; not too thick, not too thin.

So, just bought two pairs and they are the...

So, just bought two pairs and they are the first Merino wool socks I've owned. The first time I wore them, they got soaked pretty thoroughly by rain and slush. By the end of the work day, they absolutely stunk, like wet, awful grossness. My question is: Should this be expected with Merino wool socks each time they get wet? All the comments I've read keep saying how great Merino is, but to be honest if they smell this bad with just water on them, they will be unwearable with sweat stink.

Best Answer

answer is yes, but the stink is good. i have numerous merino socks(theyre all ill wear)

the smell is usually what sheep smell like! crazy i know. i have a pair of extra heavy cushion trekking socks that i use for backpacking and at the end of the day, its all sheep!
