Information about SmartWool Hiking Socks - Merino Wool, Crew (For Men and Women)
2nds. Performance-oriented merino wool wicks moisture, absorbs odor and controls temperature, so it's no wonder the smartest sock company on earth, SmartWool, incorporates it into SmartWool Hiking socks, made with a hefty dose of good stuff and a cushioned, comfy design.
Itch-free merino wool is temperature regulating, moisture wicking and odor resistant

First off, the socks delivered were not the color indicated on the Sierra Trading Post website. Despite the incorrect color I decided to keep the socks anyway. Unfortunately after only 2 wearings and washes the materials are already beginning to pile and become 'frizzy'. I've had other Smartwool socks with a years worth of wear and washes that don't look as bad as this new pair. The sock was listed as midweight and felt light, unlike other midweight Smartwools I've purchased. I should have sent them back when they first arrived and were the wrong color.

Smartwool clothing is some of my favorite, and these socks are no exception. The heel and toe areas are padded, but not so much that I can't get my casual shoes to fit while wearing them. They do have "irregular" stamped on the sides, and I tried my best to see what the issue was, and didn't find anything other than a band of yarn that's slightly darker than the rest.
