This is a very nice low profile sock. Unfortunately I returned the pair because I ordered the wrong size. Will order again in the future. I wear an 8-81/2 shoe and bought the small. Can’t remember if I looked at a size chart before ordering.

Love Smartwool socks

Runs small
Size Bought
Medium

I bought this brand sock to protect my feet when I hike or jog and that it does amazing! I do wish they washed a little better, keeping in mind I wash warm delicate and flat air dry, they still look roughed up from going in the wash. Lastly, they run a tad small. Not much but a bit. I wear a medium and they look a bit stretched.

Great Running Socks

Very supportive and comfortable when running a lot of miles. Did not rub or cause blisters. I did have to order a size larger.

I had some socks by Smartwool that looked just like these, but they were soft and comfy not scratchy and rough.

Went back for more!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I picked up two pairs of these and ended up going back for 8 more! The knit is nice and tight - they don't get stretched out with wear, even in a running shoe. I also use them in casual shoes because they are so comfortable. The merino blend wicks moisture away from my feet better than most socks I've tried. And they come in a great color variety!

Karsyn, would you say these socks are good for 3 miles of running? My daughter’s feet sweats and I am looking for the right running socks.

Runs small

Large

Runs small. Thin but cool in the summer and warm in the winter due to the wool. I bought the Large as I wear a 10 1/2 woman's but I needed a size Larger. So I gave them away.

Won't stay up!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Size Bought
Medium

Ugh, I love Smartwool socks, but these were a huge disappointment. They fall into my shoes within minutes, no matter which shoes I'm wearing. Maybe this pair sized small because the fit of my other SW socks is perfect. I like the thickness and color (pink!), but sadly, this pair is going to the thrift store. :(

These are the perfect socks. They are comfortable and durable and they stay on my heel!! I ordered one pair at first but I'm definitely going to get more.

I bought this sock to wear running, at workout class, and to work (I like things that work in any setting!) I really like this sock - it is soft, comfortable, easy to wear. It is a little bit warm under sneakers on a warmer day, I'd go with something lighter if you're not looking for a winter sock.

Fuzzy fast

Fit:
True to size

When I first put these on, the fit felt incredible! However, within the first wear, fuzz had formed all over the toe and heel of the sock -- BEFORE I had even washed the rocks. Already looking scuzzy within the first wear -- no bueno!
