    Replaced all my other socks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    So good i tossed all my other socks in the donation bin and picked up a selection of these and the other ultra light run socks. These here are the ones with the extra padding on the bottom which can be great for longer hikes/walks/runs where the padding is worth it or you have minimal shoes. The other ultra lights are the same thickness everywhere and SUPER light, they are much cooler and better for those really sweaty days.

    Everything smart wool makes i have bought so far is great so you can't go wrong either way. These were so good i dropped the dollars and replaced all my socks with them. I didn't need have as many because you can get away with wearing them for a couple of days at a time without the smell creeping in.

    Low profile merino sock heaven

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These things are like wearing nothing except they still extract sweat away from your feet when you're running and/or working hard. I love these socks I wish i had 10 pairs.

    Smartwool makes the best socks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Hands down Smartwool develops the best socks. They've got the right amount of cushion in the foot bed and are made of merino to keep your feet dry and scent free. I own at least 20 pairs of Smartwool socks and these do not disappoint.

    Ideal athletic sock!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I own several pairs of SmartWool socks for hiking, but this was the first pair I bought for non-hiking activities (running, gym, golfing, etc.). Great fit with plenty of support and padding where it is needed. Like my other SmartWools, I plan to purchase more in the future. All around, great sock!! I wear a size 12 and ordered the Large.

    go to running sock

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Let's be honest here, they are socks. Let me tell you though, I have been using them for years now and they are my go to running sock! With the merino wool they keep my feet dry and the lightweight, breathable design helps keep my feet going for miles.

    Comfortable Sock

    This is a great sock with just the right amount of cushioning. Not too much and not too little.

    At first I was thinking "...price is a little steep for socks" but decided to give them a try anyway. Now I own like 5 pairs.
    They are awesome and definitely recommend them.
    Thank you.

    Hard to decide, happy to keep

      Hard to make a decision on such expensive little sucks. After I made the purchase I just wanted to buy more. A little more cushion than I was expecting for a light sock, but they fit great. The medium was perfect for my size 9 foot.

      Awesome socks

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

      These socks are lightweight, padded and super comfortable. I don't really wear them running but as an everyday sock, they perform well.

      Cuddled up on my arches!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'7"

      These socks are super stylish for little ankle guys that wick away the sweat and keep your feet happy while being active. I love that the heels are reinforced to help keep them lasting through the times with me . They offer the right amount of arch support without strangling your feet. As long as they stay like this, I'll keep buying them in all the colors!

      Amazing!

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

      Love these! These are thin and breathable but provide the perfect amount of padding. I use these for hiking and running and they have been amazing. Great for moisture wicking as well.

      Solid Socks

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: M
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      Even though I don't do much running, I'm a big fan of the Run Light socks as my daily go-to. Light and breathable, but there's padding where you want it. None of my pairs have lasted super long, but that's expected when I wear them nearly everyday.

      Thin, breathable.

      • Size Bought: Large

      These aren't work horse socks, but stand up to the everyday grind of a normal work life. They are thin throughout, but tight in the arch and cushioned on the toe and heal. They breathe great and don't seem to have any problems with durability yet. The design on the sock is cool, yet subtle.
      For reference, I am a size 10.5-11 shoe size.

      Thin, breathable.
