    Feet Huggers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these for my boyfriend, brother, sister, mom, dad, uncle, aunt and myself.. If you want a solid winter sock for any outdoor activity for the winter time, grab these sock and be glad you did.

    Super comfy socks!

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

    These socks really help keep your feet warm in low temps, and the padding is nice because you can be on your feet for long periods of time without them hurting!

    The Best!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These socks are the best! They are my favorite to wear snowboarding. Not only do they keep my feet toasty warm but they also allow them to breathe. Everyone who snowboards or ski's should own a pair of Smartwool ski socks. They are the bee's knees! I wear a size 8 in women's shoes and the medium size fits me best.

    It's Smartwool...what did you expect?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    5 stars all the way. They seem to always be the right warmth no matter what the temps are doing outside. Extra stretchy around the ankle and arch help keep them in place. No hot spots. Highly recommended!

    Dad's Faves

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

    Dad is a ski host for a resort in Utah, so he's in ski boots majority of the winter. He loves these socks. Unlike other socks, these will last him an entire season. They've become a staple stocking stuffer for him.

    Must have

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

    It really is a game changer when you have nice ski socks under the not so comfortable design of ski boots. Has padding in all the right areas and keeps the feet warm.

    Great winter socks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use the socks for hunting in New England in December snows. Very few socks can keep you warm while sitting in the cold yet shed moisture and keep you feet dry ( preventing overheating) when you exert yourself hiking through the snow. These socks do it all and stay up at the top of your calf's all day.

    Good socks.

      Good socks, these are comfortable, dry quickly, stay up and hold up well to abuse. I use them under my waders for fishing, for skiing and with my hunting boots for multi-day elk hunting trips. They keep your feet dry and I’ve had no issues with (ashamedly) three to four days of continuous use on long back country trips

      Must Have Socks

      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      Not all ski socks are created equal, and SmartWool stands at the top of the pile. These socks are key to keeping your feet and toes happy anytime you're on the slopes. Extra padding at the shin and foot keep everything cushy while staying nice and toasty. And they're extremely durable! I have no worries about my little pinky toe poking through the material because it simply doesn't rip!

      First choice

        These are hands down my favorite ski sock, they aren't too thick or thin and they don't bunch up. I can wear them on an extremely cold day and get away with spring skiing in them because they breathe so well. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone who likes warm toes and a sock that doesn't bunch.

        There are a lot of ski socks out there but look no further, this is the one! They fit tight to your skin and do not stretch out too much. They wick moisture very well and are super comfy. I have no complaints whatsover! Buy this sock if you are looking for a super duper medium weight ski sock.

        The Best Socks On The Market!!!

        These are the best socks in the market when it comes to Snowboard/Ski... Great fit, comfort and warmth. You can not go wrong with SmartWool! *****

        So Good

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Height: 5'10"
        • Weight: 160lbs

        Smartwool seemed to beef this sock up in all the right places since my last pair (which lasted 3 seasons for me). The cushion and comfort with reinforcements in the high wear areas make this sock my go-to for skiing.

        Warm and Durable

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I get cold really easily so I not sure there a sock on this earth that will prevent this but the PHD Ski Medium does a reasonable job and is very comfortable. Durability is good enough I decided to buy another pair.

        Best Socks on the ski market

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Picking the right ski sock might as well take a doctor's diagnosis.... introduce the PHD ski. These socks are exactly what you look for in a quality, slim fitting and technically advanced ski sock. The durability of these socks for their low profile fit is something worth noting as I have had one pair for 4 seasons now and just grabbed my second and they look identical. I like the medium weight for a little more comfort and warmth. Easy fitting and solid in all conditions, there is nothing better on those long days when the dogs are barkin.
