    Runs small, especially after washing. Great feel while running, but does not keep my feet warm enough in really cold conditions - like near or below zero F.

    One of four pairs had a significant defect making them inadequate for wear. I plan to send this pair back

    These are a perfect day to day running sock for me. I actually like the big "irregulars" stamped along the side of the foot (but you can't see it when your shoe is on). Most definitely worth every penny.

For example, a size "S" is a men's size 4-6½ and a women's size 5-6½.|,2188P_SmartWool-Athletic-Socks-Merino-Wool-Lightweight-For-Men.html

    • I believe it was a general size Small. My mom, who got them for me, joked that they looked so small that she thought they were for children. I wear size 5.5 women's and they feel great. In fact I have one pair on right now.
