I absolutely love these socks, I only wear smart wool, when u hear wool u think they are itchy but but the opposite is true they are sooo soft & keep your feet warm and dry without having your feet sweat, they retain their shape after washing & drying... If you buy a pair you will never wear anything else..
"these are nice socks. you should buy them for yourself. serious."
These are really great socks. I've had the pair I bought for a couple of years now. I bought them as a splurge for myself and I should have bought them sooner, because they were completely worth whatever I had to pay to get them. Seriously, great socks. They are soft and don't itch. Even though only the bottom is padded, the rest of the sock is still seriously warm even though they are not a very thick sock. They keep my toes toasty, and they look really nice too. I wash and dry them as instructed and they are still in great shape. The stripes are and colors are nice.
Smartwool socks may be the one luxury I couldn't live without. I don't think my husband could either...I mean for me...because my frozen piggies would otherwise be plastered on his body for heat. Super cute and awesome quality.
I have loved Smartwool socks for years and was excited to try a pair of the more fashionable ones (as opposed to the typical hiking socks). These socks feel as warm and they were so cute at first, but they don't seem to be holding up as well. I went crazy a couple winters ago and got probably 5 pairs of the "fashionable" ones, and they all are unraveling in areas and getting pills. I guess my hiking ones get pills too but you can't tell/don't care as much because the purpose isn't to look cute. Overall I'm disappointed because that's a lot to pay for socks that don't hold up extremely well.
So I knew people that raved about these socks for years before I decided I would try a pair-I thought it seemed a little excessive to spend that much on a sock-however I have since bought them-I am sorry I did-Only because I love them and am now an addict. They are like hugs for your feet!
I got this pair of Smartwool Socks for Christmas, and I'm already in love with them. I had been wanting some Smartwool socks for a while after seeing how long lasting (10 + years) and comfortable they were for others. And they have definitely lived up to my expectations. They have a cushiony support for my feet compared to my plain old cotton socks, and they keep my feet warm without being overly warm. Perfect pair of socks! Definitely worth the price!
I love Smartwool socks - they keep my feet nice and warm, even in the middle of winter, without making my feet sweaty and gross. The support that these socks have is great for when I know I will be on my feet all day. I also really like the stripes!
