Smartwool Men's PhD Outdoor Light Mini Socks

rated 5 of 5 stars An excellent Merino wool sock with extra cushioning at the toe and heel. Mesh areas for enhanced breathability. Great for hiking, backpacking, trail running, and cycling. Smartwool has hit the nail on the head again with their Merino wool PhD Outdoor Light Mini socks. These Merino wool socks are packed full of interesting details that pushed them into my excellent rating. Smartwool has blended Merino wool, Nylon, and Elastane for the yarn in these outdoor socks. To start they utilize what Smartwool… Full review

Smartwool Men's PhD Outdoor Medium Crew Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable, plush, cushiony, odor-free, blister reducing hiking socks! I must preface this review with an admission that I resisted using wool socks ever since "wonder material, moisture wicking" socks entered the outdoor scene decades ago. This past month I relented and bought a pair of Smartwool PhD Outdoor Medium socks before a 25+ mile roundtrip hike on the Barr Trail (not by design). It was recommended to me that I make the switch if I wanted to coddle my feet. So I did...and boy, am I glad… Full review

WrightSock Escape Crew

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good quality sock with unique feature of being a double sock construction where a liner sock is integrated with an outer sock. I purchased these socks to use with New Balance Leadville 2 shoes for section hikes of the JMT this last summer and in general I am very happy with the fit and performance of these socks. I have tender feet and can get blisters without to much trouble if I don't use a liner with a more cushioned sock when I am hiking, and I didn't experience any problems I would associate… Full review

Farm to Feet Ballston Spa Crew

rated 4 of 5 stars Seriously comfortable socks on long hikes. I was a little concerned after their first washing as they looked to shrink to the point where I wasn't sure my wife would be able to get her feet into them, but they stretched out nicely without any pressure or pinching, so... Very comfortable and cool when hiking. I wear low top, partially mesh hiking shoes as opposed to solid leather boots any more and have ALWAYS worn Wigwam Heavy Hikers when backpacking regardless of the season. I've never had a blister.

Darn Tough Merino Boot Sock Full Cushion

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are warm and, just like they say, Darn Tough but comfortable! These were a birthday gift two years ago and I have worn them hunting, camping, and every day to work. They have been great and still have lots of life and no holes. Going to order a few more pairs! Full review

Darn Tough Merino Mountaineering Sock Extra Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars If you don't bury me barefoot, use these socks. My feet sweat. No matter the weather or what I'm doing I seem to have a perpetual damp feeling to my feet. I've tried many socks, boots, trail runners but at the end of the day my socks are wet and feel slimy. Not with this sock. I can wear these for several days on the trail and while they still get damp they are perfectly fine the next morning. While my feet always smell as fresh as spring sunshine Darn Tough socks resist getting that gym locker… Full review

Smartwool Outdoor Sport Light Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars These socks are very durable and comfortable. I own about 5 pairs of the exact sock and have had no problems with them. They dry very quickly and there is no smell when you wear them for days. I love these socks. Have never had any problems or of them. The only problem is they are not cheap. You will pay right at $15 a pair for them. But well worth the price. It's a lot cheaper than having to buy packs of socks because they wear out. You can wear these socks for days before there is any smell, and… Full review

Smartwool Outdoor Sport Light Cushion

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, breathable with a cushioned sole and open mesh top, these socks work well on their own or as a liner sock. Roughly a crew height with a comfortable bit of compression support along with their ability to dry quickly make these especially useful in hot weather. The Smartwool Outdoor Sport is a very versatile sock that functions well on its own in lightweight sport shoe applications, but also does a great job as a liner sock when wearing heavier boots. Fit and Comfort: Made from an extremely… Full review
