Hikers do it longer in their socks.

Good cushioning without overheating
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I?ve used these socks in the jungle with Salomon X Ultra GTX and in the desert mountains with my Scarpa hiking boots. The cushioning and padding were great and my feet didn?t get clammy despite the warm weather and Gore-Tex shoes.
Some people are commenting on durability- for me it?s been so far so good but I haven?t had them for that long.
They?re true to size.
A good back up
An average to good hiking sock. Nice padding and a snug fit, but wears out quickly on the heel and ball of foot. Also after only a day of heavy use tends to be stiff and crunchy from sweat, ready to be changed. Just fine if you use for just one day.

Hap hazard stitching and detailing. Compared to alternatives.
Fragile socks for sliding
These socks are slippery on just about any surface. My feet slides around in them as well.
After just a few hours of usage the socks show clear signs of heavy wear. Fabric fibres coming off on heel and ball of the foot.
One pair arrived with multiple damage to the knitting.
The padding is nice, hence the two stars.
I used to just buy a big sack of socks at the local discount store until a couple of years ago when I bought my first pair of hiking socks from Wigwam. I bought a pair of these Thorlos on a whim when I ordered a jacket from Backcountry and I'm so glad I did. The sole is so squishy and cushiony, and the part that goes around your leg isn't tight like many others can be. It's very soft and doesn't leave a "sock print" around my leg at the end of the day. I'm ordering more of them.
Thorlos Thick Cushion
These socks have proved very durable for me, I wear mine with a liner sock and they wash really well when I'm in the BC. They handle moisture very well which helps them not break down after a long day, Great sock.
Tried and true
I have been wearing Thorlos for hiking for many years and I love them. They wick perspiration well and provide a lot of cushioning. Also, they're very durable and hold they're shape.
