    SmartWool PhD Outdoor Ultra Light Micro Socks - Men's is rated 3.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from May not work for everyone, didn't for me Combination of high % nylon (friction issue) and low profile causes the sock to slip off the heel in walking. In short, it doesn't stay in shoes, don't know about running shoes. This happened immediately. Socks were worn only a couple of minutes. Note: With this type of low profile sock, too big will wrinkle/bunch. I wear an 8.5 shoe, bought a small which fits to 8.5 I intend to return these or donate ... new, unworn except 1 pair for about 3 minutes in the house. Very disappointing for someone who owns about 25 pairs of Smart Wool socks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sock Great sock. These are keeping my feet dry and cool in harsh conditions. I weld. I wear steel toed boots (Wellington style) 12+ hours a day on all forms of ground (concrete, hard pack, loose sand, gravel, rock, grass) in the very hot and HUMID (75% - 90%) Tennessee climate. These socks keep me dry and cool better than any other brand. I bought 7 pair 1 month ago and im buying another 14. I have worn smartwool exclusively for my outdoor activity for 14 years and now i will wear smart wool for everything. The sock does tend to slip slightly down the heel throughout the day, though it is not bad enough for me to bunch up and be uncomfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great evolution in socks! Smartwool has done it again. I had been so impressed with their "Light Hiker" sock I stocked up several years ago, and used them for daily wear due to their being light wool, it's cool in summer, warm in winter and holds up well even if you get it wet. But now, they seem to have made the wool feel even more like cotton, and they don't have the other disadvantages of traditional wool, ie, shrinking in the dryer and feeling itchy. Note: there are several variations of this same "PhD" sock -- this is the lower cut one, then they have a regular crew length and I think also a higher one for boots.
