Only worn them once so far, to work inside, on a cold day. Usually my feet over heat in any shoe by the end of the day at work no matter what the outside temperature. These light weight wool socks seemed to help moderate that a little. They seemed a little big at first but they didn't slip around during the day. I ordered whatever size they said was appropriate for size 11. Didn't see any defects.

I purchased these socks for a hunting trip to Alaska I am taking next year with my cousins. When they came to the house (4 buisness days deliver), I put them on immediately. I started walking in the woods along with a pair of old keen sandals I just can't find the heart to throw away. They were exactly what I had expected. My feet kept warm but they did not sweat. They did not bunch up. I did not get my feet wet so I did not test out the moisture wicking component of these socks. I was satisfied with my purchase.

Having purchased many pairs of these socks for myself, I bought these for my wife. These are my favorite socks, and were well liked by my wife when she tried hers too. They fit well, are 100% no-itch, stay up without being too tight or restrictive and wear very well. I tend to order another pair when placing an order with STP for other items. I hope they never run out of them! Highly recommended.
They will be warm but they will wick the moisture away to keep your feet dry.

Yes, they are the best for higher temps as they both wick and don't bunch up to create pressure points on sweaty feet.

Assuming you are wearing a boot or shoe with a breathable upper, you'll be fine. I prefer light wool in hot conditions more than any synthetics I have used. When I hike in hot conditions, I try to pack a spare pair of socks and change them at rest breaks if the socks I'm wearing are uncomfortably damp. These will dry pretty fast.

I don't see why not. They wick away moisture and have the light cushion.

They could be good for temperatures above 85 degrees. The sock has some cushion, but not heavy enough to suit me for an all day heavy hike.

Yes, definitely. These are a lightweight wool blend and they will keep your feet cool and dry in hot temps. Great socks.

I think the comfort of wool hiking socks in the heat depends on the person. For me, good quality merino socks (even mid-weight ones) are the best in the heat - much more comfortable than cotton, which gets soggy, or synthetic, which feels hot.
