If you are a hiker you know the importance of a good liner sock, if you are not a hiker well then take it from one you need a liner and these are the bomb! Wicks sweat away to keep your feet dry and helps eliminate blisters.
I love these liners!! They keep your feet dry, less stank, and help prevent blisters. These liners are very comfortable, I use these with my hiking boots and my work boots. The only suggestion I would make is don't buy the white they show all the dirt, I have never understood why they would make anything white for the trail.
These were recommended by friends who trekked in Nepal for my upcoming Kilimanjaro trip. I have used them in training and the only downside is having to loosen the laces on my boots to accommodate more fabric in there (my feet went completely numb the first 20 minutes of hiking, oops). Looking forward to blister and stink prevention on the 7 day trek on Kili!

These liner socks rock! Wicks wetness away from your feet. Coupled with a good hiking sock and you are all set. Typically I bring two liners and two socks. Alternate, wash if needed and dry while wearing the other pair. I noticed these seem to be higher quality and slightly thicker than previous pairs I have had.
I got these after a recent trip with new boots. I then tried wearing these under smartwool medium thickness socks. They fixed the blister problem by keeping any friction between the two sock layers. Moreover, these liners boosted the wicking performance keeping my feet more dry than before (even in warmer weather!!) - which probably also helped prevent blisters too! Thanks smartwool!
Never knew about liners before one of moosejaws employees told me.. I got a pair of them and they are phenom! Under my smartwool light hiking socks always now and my feet stay dry and the temperature stays comfortable.. love them!
I have been hiking for over 40 years and these are the best liner sock I've ever used. When used in conjunction with an outer sock, these wick moisture away from my feet thus reducing the chance for the development of hotspots. Thinking back, I don't think I've ever developed blisters when using this product.
