Dachstein 4 Ply Boiled Wool Calf Socks

rated 5 of 5 stars The best. Hard to review, mine are finally worn out [kind of, I will explain in a minute] after a couple decades [or more] of use. I've had them so long I don't even recall when I got them. I said worn out, well not totally. The heels are totally gone and I still wear them since I never had cold heels that I can remember, only cold toes in other socks. I often read where snowshoeing was done in wool socks only, no boots. I never did it but two pairs of Dachstein socks would be what I'd recommend… Full review

Sockwell Ski Medium Compression Socks

rated 4 of 5 stars Medium compression socks provide performance and quicker recovery. Merino wool and Alpaca for warmth. I have about 20 downhill ski days on these Sockwell ski socks so far and I really like them. I have tested both the Men's ski medium and the ski ultra-light socks in a medium/large size to fit my size 9 foot. Other than the thickness and a bit more Merino wool in the medium sock they are pretty much alike in performance. Both feature a seamless toe with extra padding under the ball of my foot. Heel… Full review

Patagonia Heavyweight Mountaineering Sock

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm, comfortable, and durable. This socks are a great addition to my Scarpa Manta boots for hiking in cold weather or when going cross-country skiing. I have used them anywhere from 10° C to -10° or -20°C probably a few times even colder than that if wind chill is consider. They are warm without overheating your feet and provide good cushion and allow your feet to breathe properly. They are a tad on the thick side so you need some room in your boots for a proper fit. I found them to be better… Full review

Sockwell Stabilizer 1/4 Sock

rated 4 of 5 stars This sock helps provide foot stabilization during exercise. Moisture and heat management are handled through material and weave selection. Over the past year or so I have become very enamored with compression socks, having tested them skiing, biking, hiking, and backpacking. I have found them to provide benefits that make my outdoor activities easier on my body during exercise and allow for a quicker recovery. Woven from a combination of Cashmerino (a yarn made from Merino wool and Cashmere), Rayon… Full review

Darn Tough Men's Vertex Tab No Show Ultra-Light Cushion

rated 5 of 5 stars A lifetime replacement guarantee says it all. A very soft, warm Merino wool sock with extra cushion underfoot. Darn Tough socks all come with a no questions asked lifetime guarantee, and that tells you all you need to know about the quality of their socks. In my neverending quest for the ultimate hiking sock, I like to test socks that are designed for other sports, such as running and biking. Being a fan of trail runners and low rise hiking boots I did all my testing of these Darn Tough Merino wool… Full review

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
