After going through 4 pairs of the smartwool ultralights in a week I upgraded to the thicker light socks. The ultralights kept ripping where my toenails would hit them while I ran. The lights have been perfect avoiding this phenomenon without feeling too thick. Just placed an order and upped my stash!
I wear these for running at the gym. I'm a typical dude, that I wash my gym clothes twice a month...I can probably go a whole month in these socks and they still won't smell...but then thats just wrong.Great socks, fit well. No complaints!
"Buy these and throw away your crappy socks that are 5 for $15 dollars"
Smartwool socks take a couple years for you to understand why they are $13-$25 a pair. Why because in 2 years, 5 years, 10 years your probably still pulling those socks out of the drawer and putting them on. I bought five sets nine years ago right before my hiking trip to Ireland and I have one pair left. Where did the other pairs go? I can truly tell you I have lost them are left them at a run or in a locker room by accident. I never had one rip, tear, fall apart. It took me a few years of me watching the white cheap socks be thrown away while the smartwool socks stayed year after year.
