Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Work Socks My job requires me to be on my feet for most of the day, so I was looking for a comfortable pair of socks to wear with my work boots. My foot is a mens size 9 and medium was a perfect fit. The bottom of the sock is very soft yet durable and supportive of my feet. I've been wearing them for about a month and my feet feel great after a long day's work. My feet have been nice and warm this winter without feeling sweaty and nasty. I personally have not had any issues with the socks bunching up like other reviewers have mentioned. I'd definitely recommend these for work, everyday life, and recreational use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting all around sock I had always insisted on wearing cotton socks b/c they are so cheap and if they wear out you can just go get a new pair. 4 years ago my buddy was shipping out to Afghanistan and when I asked him what he wanted he requested smart wool socks. I thought it a bit expensive but wasn't going to argue with a soldier on his way to war so I purchase him some socks and picked up 3 extra pair for myself. I haven't wore a cotton sock since. My wife ended up buying another 3 pair for me that Christmas and for 3 years these smart wools are the only 6 pair of socks I have worn. Although they have gotten thread bare the heel is still where the heal should be, not halfway up my ankle, and only one sock has developed a toe hole. I recently bought another 6 pair and hope they last just as long. As for me and my feet, we will never do cheap cotton again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I am a residential remodeling contractor. Theses socks are great in the winter, summer and last a long time. The only con I have found is that they ball up a little. Other then that I love theses sock. Also I do a good deal of hiking and i have never been close to getting a blister with these socks. Most comfortable I have found.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Darn good socks Have worn Smartwool socks for some time. This model has worked out best for all around use. Light hiking, daily wear. I particularly like it because the top is not too tight or restrictive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!! These are amazing! They are amazingly comfortable and durable! I have used them for over 2 weeks at a time, and they stay comfortable! If they get wet you can ring them out and they dry quickly! Definitely the best socks I have ever owned and they make trips way more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I've owned tons of smartwool socks, and I like most of them. These ones are the best, simple as that. Not too thick for everyday wear, not too thin that you worry about wearing them out. they are the exact right balance of luxury and performance. The BMW of socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and Comfy Regardless of temperature, these socks regulate temperature amazingly well. I tried one, then bought 3 more a week later. For me, this is THE best all around sock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and don't shrink I bought 5 of these and 3 Pategonia ultra light hiking socks a little more than a year ago. The Pategonias shrunk one size after a couple washings and I couldn't wear them anymore. These SmartWool socks seem as good as new. I only wish they came in more colors.
