    Who likes wearing crew socks on hot hikes?

    The SmartWool Hiking Ultra Light Mini Sock comes in a mini-crew height to better pair with your low-cut hiking shoes and shorts for summer hiking. Made mostly of merino wool, this sock helps with temperature regulation, moves moisture away from your skin, and is soft and non-itchy for all-day comfort. WOW technology reinforces this sock's sole with nylon and spandex for maximum comfort and durability. SmartWool also added mesh ventilation zones for increased breathability, an elasticized arch brace for support, and a flat knit toe seam to prevent chafing.

    • Merino wool, nylon, and elastane blend
    • Wow technology (reinforced sole)
    • Mesh ventilation zone
    • Elasticized arch brace
    • Flat knit toe seam

    Tech Specs Are Incorrect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these thinking they were 74% merino wool (like it says on the site), but the label they came with says it's actually 69%, that's my only complaint. Not that big of a deal but a little misleading, when I'm looking to buy a wool product I'm looking for something that has as much wool as possible. When I contacted Backcountry at the time the only response I got was: "ok thank you for letting us know, we'll change it on the site to reflect the correct info." That was about 2 months ago and they still haven't changed it.
    I'm a shoe size 9 and large fits perfect.

    Smartwool is AWESOME!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got these for my dad for Christmas, he loves them! My dad works all day long, before the sun comes up and after it goes down. He is on his feet all day and it's not exactly warm where he works a lot of the time. These socks keep his feet warm and comfortable, even when his shoes don't. Wool is truly amazing, it wicks away moisture from your foot so that you can stay warm. Smartwool gets it.

    Comfy

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

    These were a bit thicker than I was expecting and a tad warm for the mid-summer backpacking trip I bought them for. But I definitely appreciated the extra cushion. They are very soft and comfortable. I'll definitely be wearing these more during the Fall-Spring stretch.

    Nice pair of socks

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    The large fit my size 9 1/2 - 10 size feet just fine. Perfectly comfortable, I put them on and never think about them again, I think that's what your looking for with a pair of socks. They're billed as light weight and suitably thin, I'm pretty happy with them.

    Awesome Socks

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

    These are my favorite socks for hiking, skateboarding, or any activity that I'm going to be sweating. They're super breathable and lightweight enough to stand up to any hot day I've put them up against. I wear a size 11.5 shoe and the size large fits me perfect. I'd recomend these to anyone for just about any use.

    Mom loves them

    • Height: 5'8"

    I bought my mom a pair of smartwool socks a few years ago. Now every mother's day and christmas it's a must. She loves them so much.

    My favorite brand of socks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: m
    • Height: 4'11"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    These socks are great for treks or just work or running around. I have lots of pairs of this brand. They're my favorite and well made. I'm very hard on my socks and shoes and no thinness or holes in these after over a year.

    Very nice short sock

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 188lbs

    I got a pair of these and could tell as soon as I put them on they were home. Soft and warm when cool but still comfortable now that it is warming up outside. Based on this pair I purchased two more and a few pair of the crew style.

    Best Hiking Socks EVER

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

    These socks are awesome. Super comfortable and easy to wear. I bought this specific pair for the summer as they aren't so tall and tend to be cooler for me on hikes. They are really good about keeping your feet from getting blisters, whether you are on a day hike or a backpacking trip. They fit perfectly! Definitely recommend.

    Gets the job done

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

    I bought these socks at a local store to see how well they worked. After two short hikes (around 3 miles each) on an easy-light terrain, I was completely sold on them so far. They fit extremely well (size 12 wide shoe - XL Sock) and are snug on my feet. I wear Merrell mid height boots and they are tall enough to cover your ankle over the height of the boot. The weather thus far has been around 60 degrees so no testing in heat yet. I have purchased a couple more pairs and plan on putting them to the test on 5-10 mile hikes in the near future.

    Seem nice enough

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

    These are pretty nice socks, compared to a lot of the marginal options out there in the real world. Maybe not as thin or fine tuned as the PhD series from Smartwool, but plenty comfortable and well made. I would certainly recommend these as an everyday hiking sock.
