    PhD Outdoor Light Crew Sock

    With designated ventilation zones, just enough stretch, and nature's premium anti-odor fiber, the SmartWool Women's PhD Outdoor Light Crew Sock is a must-have if you spend as much time outside as you do inside. This sock features Smartwool's Indestructawool, which is a patent-pending technology that provides serious durability and comfort, while the merino wool blend wicks away moisture and dries quickly, so you're not left with soggy socks in the middle of your hike. The 4 Degree Elite Fit system consists of two elastics for improved stretch and recovery to ensure the sock stays in place. Additionally, the light cushion makes this sock ideal for varied trail and road terrain.

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I bought a few pairs of these for my Mom when she came out to visit Utah this winter. She absolutely loved them and said they were now the only socks she will buy. Would recommend to anyone looking for merino wool socks!

    Smartwool is GREAT

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

    I gave these to my sister for her birthday, they are her 2 favorite colors (mint green and grey), making them the perfect sock! Smartwool makes great hiking socks and these were no exception. The crew is the perfect length. She loved that these are pretty light weight, but will still protect her feet. They are soft and will be perfect for hiking this summer.

    Zugspitze Gear

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

    I needed a light hiking sock for hotter weather that prevent my feet from overheating and getting too sweaty causing blisters to develop. The Smart Wool Phd Light Crew Sock was absolutely perfect! I climbed the Zugspitze in Bavaria, Germany and I plan on taking them with me to Nepal for some humanitarian service, both places are hot and humid. I paired them with the Ahnu lightweight/waterproof hiking boots and I was able to enjoy the climb without any discomfort! I am curious to see how long they last since they are a lighter sock and I'm pretty hard on my clothes, socks don't last me very long!

    I LOVE the Smartwool socks

    I ride a motorcycle and need a comfortable breathable sock in my boots that keep my feet dry and cool and also give a nice cushion. This is definitely the one. Give them a try I bet you'll love them as much as I do. I have a larger leg and don't feel too constricted with this sock. And it stays put, all day. No sock slipping down your boot action :) I have been wearing these in 90 degree weather and don't feel like my feet are over heating either. A great product overall. I wear a 9.5 boot and ordered a large, they fit perfectly.

    Favorite SmartWool Socks.

    Fit:True to size

    These are my favorite SmartWool socks. With some longer trips coming up this summer, I decided I needed an extra pair. The wool construction really does make a difference when it comes to keeping your feet hot on cold days and cool on hot days. The cushioning doesn't feel bulky but makes a difference when you're logging mile after mile. Definitely recommend.

    Lighter and Softer.

    I've had various pairs of Smartwool's Outdoor PhD socks over the years, and these top the list in terms of comfort. The wool blend wicks away moisture faster, and it dries quicker than it had done so in years past. The yarn is actually softer, too, which has been nice. I will say that the durability is about the same, for me, at least. The heel often blows out for me within a year, but I then darn them and wear them as every-day socks.

    These socks are awesome! They feel amazing the second you put them on. They are great for trail running and hiking. I have wide feet and they fit nicely. Sometimes socks are too tight on me but not these. I'd only wear SmartWool if I could afford it! I'm a running shoe size 8 and I got a medium.
