    Hike Medium Crew Sock

    The Smartwool Men's Hike Medium Crew Sock and your hiking shoes are a match made in heaven. Smartwool designed this sock for rugged day hikes and moderate backpacking. Its merino wool blend optimizes thermal regulation to warm up when your foot's cold, and cool it down by wicking moisture and drying quickly after sweating up something steep. Moderate cushioning underfoot absorbs the impacts of the thousands of steps you plan on taking on trails.

    • All-purpose sock made for rugged hikes and moderate backpacking
    • Merino wool optimizes thermal regulation and moisture management
    • Merino is also naturally antimicrobial for odor reduction
    • Medium cushioning underfoot adds shock absorption
    • Flat knit toe seam and elastic arch create a snug, comfy fit
    • Item #SWL0014

    Can't Go Wrong

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These socks have been my go to socks when it comes to fishing. They fit comfortably with my wader bootie and aid in keeping my feet warm in even the coldest of waters. I have been wearing smart wool for over 10 years now and they never cease to amaze me. From hunting, skiing, fishing, or camping this brand lives up to its expectations.

    Super Comfortable!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are great socks for any activity! I wear them for hiking, biking, and as an everyday casual sock. The merino wool material wicks moisture quickly and keeps your socks from getting too stinky.

    great socks!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    These socks are a common gift I give to family members for Christmas. Everyone loves these and I highly suggest getting a pair, your feet will only thank you!

    Best Ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love the fit and the comfort. They are surprisingly warm for the thickness. I wish they made them in darker colors so I could wear them with dress pants to work everyday. I literally look forward to my days off when I get to wear these socks. They are that comfortable. I hope to have nothing but Smartwool socks in my sock drawer one day.

    Classic Comfort

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    A classic hiking sock, great for hiking/camping and also around the house when it's chilly. I've had the same few pairs for over a decade, but I buy them frequently for gifts. Want to gift someone something silly they'll never use, or their new favorite piece of clothing they'll wear all the time? And to clarify, you definitely do not need to actually hike to enjoy these socks. They're just a great all around sock to wear with any winter boot that has room to accommodate at thick sock.

    Toasty Toes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Smartwool makes great hiking socks. Your feet will be warm, they protect well against hot spots, and if your socks happen to get wet, they dry quickly.

    Love them

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

    Broke these in on six miles of muddy WY mountain trails. My feet stayed nice and comfortable the entire time. I'm sure they'll be a little too warm for summer hiking but for Fall-Spring, I know these will be my go-tos!


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These cushy hikers are great for long days on the trail and won't stink as much as your normal cotton sock. The merino wool is comfortable, wicks moisture, and anti-microbial.

    Great hiker

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Quality merino socks for hiking (or working in boots); merino keeps the warm where it should--with you--wicks away moisture, and the "medium" means they are medium thick throughout (vs "light" that has toe/heel cushion and a little thinner for the rest); weave design makes these durable, nice fit and heel pocket

    Warm & Versatile

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wear a 7.5 shoe and bought pairs of these in both Small and Medium. The smalls are great for wearing with my winter boots or on a particularly cold ski day. Mediums I wear around the house like a pair of slippers because they keep my feet warm better than my slippers. For most uses, I'd say smalls are a better fit for a 7.5/8 shoe size. I also love these for wearing under my sailing sneakers, because they don't get cold when they're wet. I bought a pair last summer and almost immediately bought 3 more pairs. I also think they will be a good transition for when my ski boots start to get more packed out, as I wear a thinner sock for skiing currently.

    The 7 Year Sock

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is one of my favorite pairs of cozy winter socks. I just recently discovered a tiny hole in one of them and am noticing that they're getting a bit thin. I just now checked my backcountry order history and see that I ordered these socks back in 2010! 7 years ago, almost 8! And I'm only just now thinking I need to replace them! These socks are awesome, cozy, and last for a very very long time.

    Warm and fuzzy feeling for my feet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are so comfortable! They are a great sock for some of the colder days. Keep my feet warm and they are soft which give me a nice fuzzy feeling. Glad I picked these up!

    can these socks be washed in washing machine...

    can these socks be washed in washing machine and dried in dryer?

    From the Smartwool website:

    "SmartWool socks are machine washable with cool or warm water. Tumble dry on low. To lengthen the life of your socks, it?s best to turn them inside out before throwing them in the washing machine."

    I personally hang dry my Smartwool and other merino socks and have been happy with the results.

    lots of older merino stuff says to line dry. some still does but more and more and saying to tumble dry low. i think putting them in the dryer allows more opportunity for pilling. big thing is if you wash or dry them on hot, you stand a greater chance of shrinking them.

    Betty. I have owned smart wool socks since 2009. I cold wash and hang to dry. Machine Drying " thins" them. Put almost 2000 miles on them in 2009 and i still wear them. Love them. I own no other socks!!!!!

    Want to buy some for my hubby and he wears...

    Want to buy some for my hubby and he wears size 11.5-12 shoes. I don't know if I should go with L or XL. Do they shrink when washed?

    Can you wear these socks if the temp is...

    Can you wear these socks if the temp is 80 or above?

    They'll be pretty hot for that, I'd recommend the "Light" weight ones for hot-weather hiking or running. I use these for trail running and hiking:

    Yes, but you may want to consider a sock with a higher percentage of synthetic. This will move the moisture away from your foot better, especially if you have sweaty feet. Try the Teko Synrgi series.

    Is the interior of the socks woven in a...

    Is the interior of the socks woven in a "terry cloth" pattern? I've worn these type of wool sock for years and am looking to expand my warddrobe.

    Best Answer

    Depends what you mean by "terry cloth". The interior IS woven in what is called a "terry loop". The height, quantity and density of these loops are varied to provide specific amounts of cushioning and stretch. Hope this helps.
