I have been buying smartwool socks for years, now. I have always wanted a thicker pair than the medium cushion ones. I always have cold narrow feet. It's nearly impossible to buy narrow shoes, and women's boots rarely have the insulation that men's boots do. I love that these socks are thick, lots of cushion, and are much warmer. I can pair these with another pair of medium cushion or even a sock liner, and my feet are much more comfortable and warmer. In addition, my boots and shoes fit much better.

I always wear mountaineering socks for the main cushioning layer while hiking. But I also use these of work. I stand and walk on concrete up to 16 hours a day. These socks make me feel like on a cushion of air. I have some happy feet at the end of the day.
