WOW technology in reinforced sole for maximum comfort and durability
These socks are incredibly comfortable and functional.. I wore these while hiking in Isle Royal and I have nothing bad to say about them. They are also great for just wearing around the house. These socks are well worth the money
I used these while hiking in the Rockies! Would say they are sized a little big. Ordered child size that said up to size 6.5 I wear a 7.5 and these fit perfect. I like my hiking socks tight though, if they are too loose I find I get blisters easier. Also warm and comfy for every day wear around the house in winter.
"Smartwool Socks are the Best Socks in the World."
Seriously. I am a total convert to SmartWool socks. I know the price tag is high but my feet have felt so much better -- winter or summer, hiking shoes or fancy boots -- since I started wearing these socks. This is the first time I'd purchased a pair of hiking socks by SmartWool but I have been infinitely pleased with them. I like how they are "lightweight" but still thick and cushiony. I can wear them in warmer weather but still have lots of padding in my sock and around the ankle. I have a very bad left ankle and any extra padding around it is much appreciated when wearing my hiking boots.
I like the warmth and wicking capability of wools socks, but I don't always want the bulk. In my opinion, SmartWool found just the right balance with these socks. They're warm, but they don't make me wish I'd bought a bigger size hiking boot. Pair them with sock liners, if you're worried about blisters, and you have a great little system for happy feet.
I'm an old hippie turned Dad. I just gave a pair of these particular socks to my (tear here) adult daughter who's off to hike the world. She is a former varsity athlete at Michigan, who somehow missed Smart Wool socks. Nobody told her, so I gave her these socks and now she loves them. Do the right thing, nurture good locally.
I had three pairs of these to hike 700 miles this past summer and fall and I love them. They are a little more stretched out now than when I started, but they still feel great. I used liner socks with them because I am slightly allergic to wool and it worked fine. I never had a blister.
I have about 5-6 pairs of these hiking socks and they're amazing! Not too bulky that your feet feel cramped but warm enough for fall and early spring hiking. They keep my feet dry in the heat of the summer too. They are so good a wicking moisture, you don't have to wear liner socks!
These are my first pair of smartwool's after several recommendations from other people who wear them. They are worth spending the money on because they are so comfortable, warm, and cute! They hug my feet all day long and don't get stretched out over multiple washes. The wool on these socks are high quality and will last for a long time it seems. I will be purchasing more... I already bought some for the husband and mother. :)
The quality of wool on these smartwool's is awesome. The fit stays true throughout the day... they don't become baggy and loose. Also, they hold up across washings (so far). The color hasn't faded one bit. They are sooo warm and cozy. They fit well in my shoes and boots... they aren't too bulky. Overall great sock... I would recommend to anyone.
I just moved to the Southern Mountains & started hiking trails this year (16 so far). I bought 2 pr. of these Smartwool Light Crews hoping they would be comfortable enough for my tender feet. I can get blisters from bedroom slippers! These socks are wonderful...cushion-y, warm enough for winter but not too warm for summer & the toe seam is so flat that it doesn't wear a blister, even on a 5 mile hike! Hey, 5 miles is a big deal for a nubie like me!! They are well worth their price to get so much comfort. Great product!!
