I love Smartwool socks! They are my tried and true sock of all time, due to the fact they last forever, and are comfortable in all conditions. I HATE sweaty clammy feet and that's why I switched to SW years ago. I have at least 20 pairs in all styles and colors for different occasions and shoes. About these in particular; I wear a 9 shoe, and I always get a Large no matter what. That way they can go in the dryer if someone forgets to leave them aside, and I can still wear them comfortably. The deal is this; if they are a bit long, they will last much longer as they won't be pulled so tight all the time. They'll be more comfortable in the long run, and you don't get holes in the toes, or heels from being stretched tight. This is tried and true for me. I know if I get a Med, like it says on the size chart, they wear out faster. If you feel they are too big, put them in the dryer for a few minutes. These PhD's are such nice fitting, nice feeling socks!!! They say light weight, but they are so cushy on the soles. A good running, sport, even summer hiking sock. I also use them for casual shoes and oxfords on weekends, and also ("blush", yes I'm one of "those" who wears socks with my sandals sometimes) for my sport sandals when it's chilly in the mornings. If you are camping, they wash out in a small bucket, or stream and are dry in about an hour. Perfect sock in my opinion!

I prefer this brand for running outdoors either in the summer or the winter because although they are warm, they breathe and wick moisture well. Normally they are also supportive, but this pair seems to be thinner and lost its structure after just a few uses. I assume this is what they mean by seconds, but I would purchase this brand again. They are also so much cuter than those plain white running socks.
