    Thin Like Nothing Else

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If it weren't the stigma, I would be bare feet all the time but these Ultra Light socks are the next best thing. I enjoy getting to feel what is underneath my foot and getting to feel the earth as I walk on it. These socks have plenty of breathability and no cushion! I use these as everyday socks and also to the gym because they do both so well. Smartwool has their eye on the prize with these socks - I like the extra fabric they added to slip on and pull off the socks. I might need to get another handful of these!

    My Favorite for Years!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been running in the PhD Ultra Lights for years and i keep going back. If you like padding these are not for you, but if you like a minimal sock with no padding that wicks, doesn't get to stinky and holds up look no further.

    Too thin for my taste

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Socks were very tight fitting and too thin for my taste. If you want a true minimalist sock this is probably great for you, but if you're looking for any kind of padding, go with something else.

    Look No Further

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

    If you are in the market for a good pair of low-cut socks, look no further- these are perfect. They're very comfortable, not itchy at all. They do wick moisture as well, so great for working out or just casual wear. My husband has been using them for about two months now and they're still holding up great, but I don't expect them to last forever with how lightweight they are. So it goes with socks! Definitely would recommend these bad boys though.

    Great Quality

      Nice snug fit that doesn't slip and offers some support. Keeps my feet comfortable and pretty dry. Doesn't stink. Fabric rebounds and can be worn several days in a row with pretty much the same fit. Great socks, worth every penny.

      Gets the job done

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

      Took these out for several miles on the trail, and this has now turned into my favorite running sock. Super soft fabric, and great comfort while running. Pretty impressed with the odor prevention as well. Great light sock for running.

      Over smart wool running socks

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Because they are so comfortable and breathable I have given these socks a pass for too long. Six pairs in the last year is way too many to go through, seems to be be exact same spot that blows out too (right along the toe line). They have a shelf life of maybe 100 miles per pair, which for someone who runs 50 plus miles a week is really just not long enough. I really did love these socks, but have seen the light and found something that don’t fail on me halfway through a run.

      My New Favorite Socks

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Initially, I was a bit hesitant to splurge on Smartwool socks, but I now regret not making the purchase sooner! These socks are my favorite sock for any type of activity. They're lightweight, breathable, and don't smell horrible after a good sweat session. Durability has been great so far, and they show no signs of wearing out any time soon. Get yourself a pair (or five)!

      Go wool or go home

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Once you've experienced the longevity of a good pair of wool socks (both lifetime and multi-day use) you'll be hard pressed to go back. I generally pack one pair of wool socks per 4-6 days of travel.
