the socks are great. I didnt know what socks to buy for skiing and my friend Recommended these socks. My feet always get cold, no matter what and with these socks they were comfortable in the ski boot and my feet felt warm. It was a great buy…

I use these socks daily. I am a horse trainer so I am out in all types of weather and ground conditions such as Snow,Ice,Mud,Rain. They fit perfect when wearing my tall riding boots or wearing regular footwear like the Ariat Terrain work shoe.They stay in place!!!

I was expecting the socks to be a little thicker, but they are still very warm and the fact that they are fairly lightweight means more flexibility in what shoes I wear. So not exactly a con, just a little thinner than expected.

The warmest of the SmartWool ski socks will be the Medium /cushion as it will be thicker, add more padding on the shin and insulate more. I use these and while it is cold at the start of the day, once I get going my toes, which have bad circulation, warm right up.|The item # for the socks I recommend is #1919R

I used Smartwool PhD Light Ski socks to ski in a snow storm, and my feet did feel dry and warm. However, these socks are a bit thick and feel tight in my ski boots. For regular skiing, I have used the Smartwool US Ski Team Light socks because they are thinner. Although both socks are "Light", the US Ski Team socks are thinner.

I have worn about 6 types of Smartwool socks in a moderate climate and the Medium Hikers seem to be the warmest.
