These are just what I needed for mountain biking. They are nice and thin and I noticed a difference between these and my old cotton socks as far as heat is concerned. My feet stayed much cooler. The top is nice and snug so they stayed up and didn't droop any. Of course, my ankles are pretty little, so for someone with larger calves or ankles may find it too snug. A bonus to the nice tight top is there's no way ticks can get under the lip of my socks while I'm out I the woods brushing against all sorts of foliage. Definitely a winner for me. The size small worked perfectly for a size 6 foot.

I had read other reviews that said these were too snug at the ankle, but because I'd mostly found SmartWool to run just a smidge big for me, I got them anyway. The reviews are right. I can wear them for brief periods, like my bike ride to work and back, but certainly would not be able to tolerate them all day. Uncomfortably tight at the top band, leaving a groove in the ankle and swelling/numbness/pain above and below if worn much more than an hour at a time. I'll keep for the short trips, but that's it
