So 2 separate trials with these and I love them. I'm type 1 diabetic & feet care is an absolute must. I use to believe socks are socks but after blisters & my dogs barking I had to make a change. I purchased these by recommendation of other reviews and fully agree these are fantastic. Like an orgasm on your feet...maybe not orgasm but definitely "ska dosh". I did 8 miles on warm pa day along the banks of the allegheny wearing 8" danners & a very humid 92 degree miserable 3 mile Pittsburgh daunt wearing new balance cross trainers. Usually I can drench some fluid from my socks following similar excursions and odors that cause many to vomit, but my dogs were dry & no blisters. I'd recommend these to anyone who is looking to enjoy their feet for a long time& just want to remove socks without literally peeling them off. Big Country Approved
"Perfect for warm weather / everyday wear"
These socks are great for warm hikes and I find myself wearing them to work as well. 75% of my job keeps me locked behind a desk but the rest of the time I'm running around outside, whether it be a ski slope getting ready to make snow, golf course closing down for the season or winterizing a camp ground. This are my go to socks, they keep me cool enough in the office but warm enough for short periods of time (1-2hours) outside in cooler weather. I just wish I could get more of them!
This sock is an amazing wool sock! It keeps my feet comfortable, dry and, perhaps most importantly, not to hot while summer hiking. My feet get extremely hot and sweaty very easily in the summer, but I never had a problem even when I was hiking through hot sand. These compared to the smartwool light hiking sock are much better at keeping your feet cool and comfortable in the summer. I also have hiked with the light ones, and my feet were hot and sweaty within minutes. If you are going hiking in the summer the ultra light socks are definitely the way to go. The sock has tons of ventilation to keep your feet cool, and the wool helps keep your feet dry.
This is my new go-to hiking sock for summer and warm weather hiking. Nice cushion and lightweight. Doesn't over-heat my feet. The perfect blend of wool for summer time, I even catch myself wearing them around the house. When hiking, you will want to wear it with liners.
