These are just regular knitted wool and nylon socks, none of the performance features of the more tech-y Smartwool styles. Also contain more stretch material, making them better for people who like their socks to fit super snug. Held these up to my favorite old Adrenaline Hikers of the same size (large) and they were something like an inch and a half shorter in the toe. I hate feeling the ends of my toes pushing against the elasticity of my socks, so I sent them back. You couldn't go amiss ordering a size up with these--or even two, if you have claustrophobic toe-ends. With Itchless merino, they are still decent for the price.
