These socks are amazing! I bought some for me and my husband. We have had them a year now and I don't see any sign of wear. They are thick, but the wool doesn't make you sweat. The "x" style design across the top of the foot can make them hard to get on, but they are a great sock. Definitely would recommend it to a friend and will buy more when these wear out.

They're marked 2nds, but I saw no issues with them when I tried them on. I love wool socks because they're warm, even when wet, tough and durable, and they cushion my feet where it matters. I haven't taken them out yet, but I will. I might not have tried them, had STP not been running such a great discount.

I am always unable to find the "irregularity" of the seconds Smartwool socks I buy at Sierra. These socks amused me by having the word "IRREGULAR" stamped on them, leaving my hiking companions to wonder what was wrong with my feet. Smartwool seconds are becoming a habit for me, you might say I have an irregular foot fetish...

I own other brands of socks, and socks with other material. Merino wool = best available with decent price. Smartwool = most trusted and worn brand of hunting, hiking, trekking, walking sock out there.

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.
