"These socks are dialed in like my saddle height"
Whether its 30* F and raining or the brutal Louisiana sun is beating down, these light, wool socks regulate your foot temperature while cycling unlike any other. They are like a base layer for your feet, making sure that the last thing you're worried about on your ride is a blister or cold feet. Save those for your wedding day.
This is a well made sock, comfortable with extra padding in the right areas so you won't get blisters on the trail. You can't have too many pairs of these. They feel even better when you slip on a pair of Zamberlans over them... :)
I swear by Smartwool after wearing these socks. Keeps my feet cool, drys quick, well made, comfortable. I love the extra padding around the toe and heel area. I won't consider buying anything other than merino wool socks for hiking/backpacking. Worth the money.
"Comfortable Breathable Socks that work with sucky shoes too"
Ahhhh. That is what my feet said after a long day of walking around in wet muddy crap, with crappy shoes on over these amazing socks. I walked through puddles on a dirt trail after weeks of rain. My shoes soaked through, but my feet stayed warm and felt dry! Cant tell you enough how much I like these socks! The padding on the toes and heels is excellent. Expensive for socks, but smartwool is well worth it!
I bought these socks for rucking in the military, and so far they've withstood everything the Marine Corps has thrown at them. I can wear these for multiple days in a row and my feet stay dry and cool. After getting wet they will continue to prevent blisters and are still comfortable. 20 mile hikes are no sweat (literally!) and I've never had to change them out during a ruck. You will not go wrong with these socks!
""I dreamed a dream of socks gone by." -Les Miserables"
These socks are two of three pairs of socks I wear during the winter/hiking. They have a unique quality in that they seem to not smell. I haven't washed them in months. Seeing that written down makes me realize that that is probably an issue...What am I doing with my life?
