Summary

A good sock, for trail runners.

Pros

  • Solid Smartwool construction

Cons

  • Can't wear these with boots

I am relatively new to the trail runner game, but having bought my first pair about a year ago, thought I needed socks to go with and these fit the bill.

Like other Smartwool socks, these are constructed of really good wool and yet light enough so your foot doesn't get hot. That being said, the socks are a bit one dimensional as they only go up slightly past your ankle bone so if you have any "high tops" or boots, they will chafe on your bare skin.

Overall, another quality product from Smartwool.

Summary

Super comfortable, even without a liner. Great for day hikes.

Pros

  • Thin
  • Uncumbersome

These are great socks for day hikes. The only reason I wouldn't wear them for long distance hikes is because of the false sense of security I get from long socks protecting me from tics. If it's hot out and you need a pair of socks that will keep you cool and dry, reach for these. SmartWool never fails.

I not only wear PhD's on the trail, I wear them every day at work. I am on my feet about ten hours a day. At fifty years and god knows how many miles my feet need a lot of tender loving care.

My feet sweat a lot which is hard on socks. PhD's are the toughest I have ever had and they make my feet happy.

These socks are awesome! I bought them because I didn't want a ton of sock hanging out above my boots in the summer time and because they were so comfortable. 

I've worn them fairly regularly over the past 2 years. They still fit very well and my foot doesn't slide around in them due to the strategically placed elastic (which hasn't worn out yet). The reinforced areas really help cushion my foot and wick away moisture while the thinner material on the top of the sock really lets your foot breathe and not overheat.

The wool-on-wool technology is very durable and have I noticed very little pilling up of the wool on the inside of the socks after lots of wear-- unlike my "regular" SmartWools which all have thin spots at the balls and heels of my feet where the wool has been worn away. 

An added bonus is they don't retain stinky foot smell, which is a relief to my tentmate while we're on the trail!

I have used this sock and its adrenaline predecessor over the last 5+ summers and find them very comfortable and wearing well in light hiking boots.  Recommended.
