- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I wanted to title the review TOEsty, but couldn't bring myself to do it. I really love these socks. I have had them for a long time and they just barely started to wear down. I have a size 11 foot and was surprised how tight they were at first but they stretch a bit and are comfy after a few minutes
Bang for the buck, yo!
Stoic socks are the best bang for your buck. At a killer price you get a sock that feels like a Smartwool. This is the best place to save money without sacrificing quality.
Love these socks!
I struggled for a long time trying to find decent socks for winter or trail running. These are it. I got them on the cheap at SAC, but would now pay full price for them without question.
My feet never get cold, hot, wet, etc... They are always comfortable!
held up well after a few heavy extended uses. these are good for me to down around freezing. i wish they were either longer or shorter. they come a couple inches above my ankle. i like calf length or no show socks, but at the 18 chucks i paid for 3pair off SAC, i am not complaining. decent socks at a good price, but they are not smartwool. so dont be fooled and pay smartwool prices for them!

What does the 1pr mean compared to the 3pr? does that mean how many pair's come in a pack?
Drew, yes that is the quantity of pairs per package.
Merino is the best
While these are no Icebreaker socks these are pretty awesome. They offer great arch support and after the first few times of wearing them have stopped pilling. No stink is the other bonus!!
Best, most comfortable sock I have. I use them for hiking and biking.
These are my go to socks all winter. Once I get out of my ski socks I change into these. They are simple and not bulky and very comfortable. I wear them whenever I am in town walking around or doing whatever. Also they work great for when you are mountain biking. Also, once again a great price for a sweet piece of gear.
Too many loose strings inside.

A little shorter than I was hoping for.
Nice comfortable socks, but just too many loose strings in the sock.
Great Merino Socks
These socks are padded, dry quickly, keep your feet warm, and good looking. They are extremely comfortable; I would say more than most. I would recommend these socks to anyone who does backpacking or hiking. I just couldn't justify giving socks five stars so gave them four. :)
Hot Monkey SOX V.2
I'm really digging these socks, they are very comfy so far. My feet run hot, (pun intended), but they stay at a relatively good temp in these bad boys. These socks are thin, so they don't work as well in hiking boots, at least for me. I like to wear them around town in my tennis shoes. Bomber construction. Recommended.
I like socks. I really like the backcountry socks over the years. These are a worthy prodigy. I've used them for hiking,running and casual use. They work well. A little bit more cush than traditional thin bike socks, but not overly so.
Do have to admit, I'm not a big fan of the 'R' and 'L' thing.
Think I've got a pair on right now!
I picked up a few of these before the Ragnar, and ran in a pair in each of my legs. They're a nice mid-weight sock and pretty comfortable all around. They're a bit too warm/thick in my opinion for a running sock. Stick to the hiking trails with these guys.
Nice hiking sock with all the great qualities of merino wool. They are right level of thickness for a hiking sock. They wore very well on a four day hiking trip through southern Utah through 100 degree days, sand and cooler nights. No stink after four days.
Nice light sock
These socks fit great and feel great. They are a little light for me to want to do serious hiking and backpacking with them on. But they are good for pretty much anything else.
Re-review. I was using these socks with a big heavy full grain leather boot. I recently switched to a shoe half the weight and these socks work great with the lighter weight footwear.
Just like the No-Show's I can't sing anything but praise about these socks. They breathe well and are very supportive. Do good at keeping trail dust out. Again only four stars because I want to see how they hold up after awhile, but they have held up great through a half dozen or more washes.
Great for any use
Merino is the way to go for socks (well, for almost any clothing, really) and these do not disappoint. These are tall enough for most hiking boots, but can work with running shoes, biking, at the gym, pretty much any place you need comfortable, non-stinky, supportive socks. The coolest thing is that they are labeled left and right...no more worrying whether you have the right sock on the right foot (no pun intended).
Anyone know how high up these go? Also,...
Anyone know how high up these go? Also, are they somewhat thick and cushy, like a medium weight sock, or thinner like a light weight sock?
The L/XL size measures 5" from bottom of heel to top of sock - would extend about 3" out of a typical trail run shoe.
The Merino Comp Trail sock is more of a midweight sock - good amount of cushion under foot and under tongue. If looking for a lighter weight sock, the Stoic Synth Trail sock will be in stock in the next week.
As Ben posted, these go a little over 2 inches above my ankle.
Thanks for the answers guys. Mine showed up yesterday and I am pretty happy with them. When wearing them with my Lowa Mids they stop right above the top of the boot. They are also quite comfy.
