Form fitting sock but does stretch. Newest sock(PhD), but smartwool is getting cheap on cushioning. Its more like a medium cushion. Wash in cold water inside out and low heat so they don't shrink up. Not supposed to be used with liner socks. Durability is average if backpacking and not very warm. I would buy the Smartwool hiking heavyweight instead that can be used with a liner.

First pair of tall PhD socks I've bought, normally buy the runner height but wanted some to wear with boots. Like the way these fit. These are stamped "Irregular" on the foot of the sock but seem to fit normally.

These socks feel great and do an awesome job of wicking moisture! If it is really cold you may need to wear them with a liner or foot warmers but otherwise they are good to go. The heavy weight is perfect for me in all but summer conditions because of the extra cushion it adds.

Very thick and comfortable. does not itch or anything. make sure you close up all velcros in your laundry before throwing these socks in. they stick to Velcro a lot!
one of the thickest socks ive ever worn.. can be good or not.. it can add a half size to your foot and make your shoes very tight. if a pair is a little loose, these will make it snug, other than that, wear something thinner.
i love how they don't smell! great for long trips.
