    Stupendous Socks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are one of the best socks that I have worn, and occupy a center spot in my sock drawer. The socks breathe extremely well, eliminating alot of the humidity that causes swamp feet. Than their fit system is amazing, and keeps the sock from moving around in the slightest. Than the heel is reinforced which gives a little extra cushion, but also provided more durability. Overall an exceptional sock that I would recommend to everyone.

    Best sock I've ever had

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The slight cushioning around these socks make them a dream to wear for long hikes. I haven't felt a single blister start to form since I started wearing these on hikes. I don't think I've ever been so stoked on a pair of socks. Gonna order lots more.

    I wish all my socks were this comfy.

    I'm definitely going to try to replace as many pairs of socks over the years as I can with these. Super plush, comfortable, breathable, all around just a great foot bag!

    Running, hiking, every day comfy

    I love the Smartwool socks for everything. The shorter ones for trailrunning, like these, and the bigger ones for alpine hikes and skiing. You can't go wrong with their products. They also keep well several days without washing (sorry for the detail...)

    My go-to everyday sock

    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I got a few pair of these because they fit great and are very comfortable. They provide just enough support and are breathable too.

    Can never have enough smartwool socks

    Cushion and comfort

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

    • Weight: 190lbs

    These socks provide great cushion and comfort for those long runs and hikes. The cushioned tab on the opening of the sock adds even more appreciated comfort, helping to prevent rubbing and blisters. These socks stay in place with the best of them as well!

    be smart with your feet

    Don't use lame basic cotton socks for those active days. These feel great and are very comfortable hiking, biking, walking, etc.. just wear them everyday. Your feet deserve the best.

    Let my toes Breathe!

      I love these socks! The mesh panel allows better ventilation so that my feet don't get too hot. They fit great and don't shift through out the day like some other socks.

      Comfortable, great exercising socks!

      I've used these for running, biking & walking. Great quality of socks that dry quickly & are comfortable. They are a tad thicker than the socks I've previously worn but as long as you don't have very snug shoes, I highly recommend these.

      Passed the 48 hour test

      • Size Bought: Large

      These are becoming my new favorite sock. I decided to put these through the 48-hour test. 16 hours of warehouse work 2 workouts so you can say a gave them a run for their money. There was no noticeable odor, my wife's nose is pretty keen on smell and she lets me know about it. after that much time in a cotton sock, it would have become floppy losing their elasticity. even after the second gym session they felt just as supportive. I've washed these several times and still like new. Perfect sock for hiking or backpacking.

      So far these socks have performed very well. No blisters even when sopping wet. I paired these with Merrell yakotas, wore them to work for ten hour days, wore them on trail packed snow multiple times and on hard surfaces. Everything about this sock is what I wanted in it and performed like it should. I wear a 9-9.5 and bought the larges, bought three pairs. Recommended

      These are definitely my favorite socks. Great for running and hiking or just everyday use, which is what I use them for the most. If you're looking for a low cut do everything sock, look no further than these.

      Great for hikes or running

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

      These are great for a variety of activities. While they certainly keep your toes toasty in colder temps, I don't typically have an issue when the thermometer runs into the 80s. My feet don't sweat much, I guess, and the natural merino fiber keeps the sweat that does happen in check. Definitely recommend anything in Smartwool's PhD series. I got the mediums which are on the small end of the spectrum for shoe size 9-10 but they fit well.

      Great for hikes or running

      Solid sock - maybe a bit too solid

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

      So I really like this sock. It's comfortable and has some good cushion. But I find that most days I'm going jogging my sub-conscious is looking for other socks first. I think it's because the sock is a little too thick. Might be better for the day hike than the morning jog.

      This is a great sock

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'2"

      This sock holds up with repeated washing. It is soft but strong. I wear them with sandals and shoes with equal comfort.

      EXCELLENT!

      These socks are great and worth every penny! Super comfortable and supportive. Even after days of hiking in them they hold their shape and don't stretch out into a floppy mess. I highly recommend picking up a pair.
