Reviewed by MomOf4 from Utah on Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Only worn them on one hike so far. I was worried they would be too hot or too thick for my hiking boots, which are a tad narrow. We hiked up a mountain in the summer (up to about 85-90 degrees outside). My feet felt great the whole time. Not hot, not sweaty, not too tight. Really pleased with them. ... Read More

  • Reviewed by Wheeler Canyon Ted from Ventura CA on Wednesday, April 08, 2015
    I just completed over 765 miles on a trek and these were the best socks that I used. I started out with Smartwool Medium Weight Hiking socks, and then went through several other style Smartwool toes socks (also as liners), and other brands, but ended up with some blisters on my toes. I finally switched to the Phd Outdoor Medium Crew and they were the best. They hold their stretch and support even after five to six days with the same dirty pair, as I didn't get a chance to change or wash them on the trek. The regular Smartwool Hiking socks would stretch out and get baggy after a few days and that would cause my feet to move around a little within my shoes. I air dried them at night and they did not pick up much of an odor. I also found that if you wash them inside out they are much less likely to pill. I wear a size 11-11 1/2 shoes, but usually get the extra large as sometimes they do tend to shrink just a bit. I still have different type of Smartwool socks and love them all, but for my hiking and outdoor activities, these are great, and the best. However, like with shoes, everyone's feet are different, so you have to take sock reviews with a grain of salt.

    This sock both breathes well in warm conditions, and insulates beautifully in cold wet conditions. Also does a great job of preventing chafing, wet or dry. So glad I got a pair of them for backpacking.

    I bought four pairs and two had holes upon arrival. I understand they are 2nd's, but holes are something else. The two that are intact are fine.

    I am a huge fan of Smart -Wool socks and have at least 10 prs now. Usually I wear a size large sock. I ordered these in both large and extra-large and they were both way too small to wear comfortably. I was going to return them, but my son is able to wear them. They were on sale for a great price and I didn't want Sierra Trading Post to have to deal with the return if I could make use of them.

    Smart Wool PhD socks are the best. Great fit, comfort and once you start wearing Smart Wool you will not want another brand of wool socks. Comfortable in the summer and spring hikes with the wicking ability and warm in the winter. Makes your feet feel fresh after many miles.
