I'm indebted to STP for, among other things, introducing me to Goodhew socks. They are my favorite brand by far. I worn their Light Cushion Hiking socks for every day for several years. They are soft, comfortable, stay up without being the least bit tight or binding, and they wear like iron.
This sock is no exception. They are well made, comfortable, and while I cannot yet speak to long term durability, experience leads me to believe they will perform very well. Other wool and wool blend socks may have more name recognition, but take it from me, these are better in every way!
I have purchased this "Navy" color and it looks like washed denim - perfect for me to wear with my jeans!

The tan sock is a true 100% tan like Khaki color, the navy sock is a blend of true navy wool and lighter greyish-blue wool. The overall affect is to have like a heather navy...kind of a blend that is more navy than grey, but definitively not 100% navy.

I have this color, I would call the picture accurate. It uses at least two colors of threads in the sock, one is a grey and one is maybe navy, but the combined color when viewed from any distance is more a dark blue/grey and not so much navy.

Well the ones I have are light grey on the bottom toe to heal the balance has that grey with a navy mix so from 4' away the look great but darker than the bottoms

I am a Women's size 7 and wear the size small they fit great and wash and dry well. My boyfriend is a Men's size 9 and wears the mediums, but he also sometimes wears my socks they just fit him very snugly. If I were you I might buy the smalls if you have long and slender feet and the mediums if you have long and wider feet. I hope this advice is helpful!

Hello Liatris again,
Just for clarification in the above answer for smalls I meant to S/M size and mediums for M/L size...their sizing is a little confusing!

If you hover (or click) your mouse over each listed size, it will tell you what the size is in male (M) and female (F). M/L (M Shoe Size 7-10, F 8-11)

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.
