    I have over the years found merino wool socks to be the best overall choice for wearability and comfort. I've had cheap ones. I've had expensive ones. This particular sock surpasses them all. I use them 10 months of the year (in high summer, I switch to a cotton sock). While somewhat more expensive than others I've bought, they are definitely very well made and worth the additional cost. Not too heavy. Not too light. And they're buttery soft. Good cushioning. I use them every day for every purpose. One thing I have learned, is always turn the sock inside-out when washing (delicate cycle). Hang dry, and then fluff with a softener sheet in the dryer (no heat). This will preserve the sock, prevents pilling, and extends the life of the sock.

    I bought these socks to compare to the Wigwam "Comfort Hiker" socks that I really like. I bought on the notion that the Goodhew brand was a direct comparison to Wigwam since they replaced them on the Sierra site.

    I believe the casual wearer whom has never tried Wigwam Comfort Hiker socks would really like the Goodhew socks. They were indeed quite comfortable and kept my feet dry all day long at 80+ degrees working construction outdoors. They kept their fit, did not seem to flatten, fall down, or wriggle off in my boot. The interior loops are soft and plush.

    However in direct comparison to the Wigwam Comfort Hiker socks (not comfort hiker lite socks), the Goodhews appear to be about half as dense inside; or to say, a little less comfortable. the Goodhew fit is a bit tighter in the toe, a bit looser in the calf, a little shorter on the leg, and also appears to have a wider weave overall. The label reads 68% merino wool, 30% nylon, and 2% spandex. In my experience with hiking socks, I would say these are very close to comparison with the fit and feel of Smartwool Hiking Med Crew socks than the Wigwam Comfort Hiker series.

    I just looked up the Wigwam and Smartwool materials and they are given as follows:

    Wigwam Comfort Hiker: 57% Merino Wool, 37% Stretch Nylon, 3% Dri-release@ (85% Polyester, 15% Cotton), 3% Rubber.

    Smartwool Hiking Medium Crew: 71% Merino Wool, 28% Nylon, 1% Elastane

    So Goodhew falls in the middle in terms of actual Merino Wool which surprised me.

    One last little point of interest was the statement on the Goodhew label "CRAFTED IN THE USA" which I really like to see. Wigwam actively lobbies for USA manufacturing and of I assume practices what they preach and in searching I found that Smartwool also declares "Knit in USA" on their advertising. So all around good stuff.

    I usually wear Smartwool socks, but I tried these b/c they were on sale. They are every bit as good as Smartwool. I wear them to hike in and on cold days around the house. Much warmer than cotton and just as comfortable. So far, they're as good as any I've ever worn.

    I've only had these for a little while, but they are perhaps the most comfortable socks to ever have been pulled over my feet. It's like I've lined my feet with baby rabbits, without the hassle of baby rabbits. I have a few other merino socks, but so far these take the cake.

    I picked up a couple for my wife as well, and she loves them too. They may have made up for "the hot sauce incident". These aren't just socks, they're a marital aid. Perhaps the whole Middle East thing would be helped by sending a few truckloads of these bad boys over there. It's a lot harder to disagree with someone when your feet are this comfortable.

    I haven't taken these out in the field yet, but I plan to have these in my pack next weekend for my first winter camp of the season.

    • Answer I wear the same shoe size but sorry, I can't remember what size I ordered! And yes, I love the socks. I wore them in the snow of Arctic Norway and they kept my feet reasonably warm (I say reasonably warm because the temperature there is exceedingly cold!).

    • Answer The product description mentions merino wool, but they are entirely unlike any merino socks I have ever owned. They are made in China, which might have something to do with it. The predominant fiber is something far too elastic for socks, resulting in a poor fit that gets looser over time. I sent all of mine back.

    • Answer A smaller size will be far too small for your foot. It will be a much better fit for you to get the 8-11 socks.

    • Answer not if you let them air dry after washing according to instructions. air drying takes overnight in a heated house.
