I was looking for extra-thick, extra-warm socks and these definitely fit the description. I use them at night inside sleeping bag/tent to keep my feet warm and they are great. They are so thick that I can't wear them with any of my boots but for my purpose I am very pleased with the purchase.

Bought these for my husband (and another similar pair for myself) and they are wonderful.We both love SmartWool socks period. These particular ones will be used for hunting. The description is accurate. You will want to be sure your boots have some extra room as these socks are very thick. You won't be disappointed!

I've been using these socks lately to break in my new Alico boots. Even in 80* temperatures, they're still comfortable, but you're sort of pushing the comfort envelope at this point with heavy wool socks. In my personal opinon, if you're going on a long distance hike, I can't think of anything better than good ol' fashioned wool + liner socks and foot powder (though I would save these for cooler temperatures at this point). These socks, as you can see in the pic, have special padded bottoms and several areas sewn differently for user comfort. I would buy these socks again.

These another pair of great socks for SmartWool. They are very thick which is great for walking around the house in the winter. However, due to the thickness I doubt I could where there in many of my shoes including my lace to toe boots. The band at the top is quite tight and doesn't really stretch which can be somewhat uncomfortable once in a while, but they do stay up pretty well on your leg.

I loved the socks. They kept my feet warm on a very cold and windy day in chicago. The only problem was they sagged. They didn't stay up on my calves. I had to keep tugging them up. And this was the first time I had used them. I'll wear them again. I just need to figure out how to keep them from sagging. I would've given them 5 stars but the sagging thing was annoying. Maybe I just have big calves.
