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!
