It has yet to be proven and backed by science, but it's been said that wearing a pair of the Smartwool PhD Hunt Light Crew Sock severely softens your foot falls. Meaning you're able to track stealthily and comfortably. To start, the Hunt Light features a tall crew silhouette that's compatible with hunting-specific boots, while the merino wool blend keeps those pesky odors at bay and manages moisture in stride. Additionally the mesh venting helps regulate the temperature of your foot, and achilles strap safeguards your foot and provides added warmth.

These are great socks! They are well made and I have no doubt they will stand the test of time. They are described as a light crew but the foot does have a few thicker places that extra padding. This didn't seem to cause any problems with tightness when worn with shoes. If anything, it adds extra durability in the areas of the sock that would wear out quicker (toe, heel). They are definitely warm and comfy without being too bulky.
