Summary

I have used these socks since 2003. I have purchased around 12 pairs. They are great socks and very comfortable in extreme heat and cold weather in the high teens.

Pros

  • Great fit
  • Supper comfortable
  • Best socks I have ever owned

Cons

  • Heel wears out faster than the rest of the sock
  • Will shrink if you dry them incorrectly

The only cons: I wear the heel out fairly quickly and when drying them they will shrink pretty bad.

These crew socks come up to your mid-calf, which makes them great to wear with light hikers or running shoes. A special blend of merino wool and synthetic fabrics wicks moisture, fights odor, and delivers next-to-skin softness.
