SPECIFICATIONS of the Smartwool Trekking Heavy Crew Sock
Almost exclusively wear these socks on backpacking expeditions. In the warm months they keep my feet blister free. In colder weather, they keep my feet warm. They don't dry as well as other pairs of socks I knows, but overall they are definitely beter.
I have used the Smartwool socks for some time but not the Heavy. I normally wear a thin wool liner with a mid weight outer. I have now changed my thinking and will continue to use just this heavy sock. I wore them out recently on a day of snowshoeing through 3 feet of fresh powder. I was wearing my mountaineering boots in these conditions and found my feet to be super comfortable and warm all day. Great cushion, super soft, very comfortable. I would highly recommend these.
I have a circulation issue with my feet, and well, let's just say they hate winter. These socks are great when paired with a roomy boot. Super warm, super comfortable, and the inside is extra soft. LOVE them. Oh, and they stay up. Don't you hate it when socks fall down?
I own three different styles of smartwool socks. These are by far my favorite. The material will not wear out in the heels like the phd's. The thickness is perfect. Should last forever. Well worth the money.
I wore these and also Medium cushion over a few days of my first backcountry trip in years. Not only did I not get blisters, but over 4 days my callouses from walking around town were starting to decline (and haven't really returned). Since I have invested in many more Smartwool products and not looked back. I prefer a tighter sock so with a size 13 shoe I use Large sized socks and they work great, no liner.
After you wear smart wool socks, you don't ever want to put anything else on your feet. Best product for your money. Take care of your feet, always a much happier person. I've done 10+ mile rucks with these socks with 90 lbs, no blisters. I have happy feet. Thanks moosejaw!
They are superwarm, supersoft and very cozy. After some jogging in cold weather with my vibram fivefingers my toes are usually very cold. Put these on, count to 10 and violá, your toes are happy again!Works great with any winter boots as well.
