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

    I originally gave these a five star review, but have lower it because the brown do run small. I ordered both the dark charcoal and brown, and the charcoal were perfect but the brown were too small. I wear a 11 1/2 shoe and had ordered ex-large but they felt more like a large, or even a medium. I contacted STP and their excellent customer service sent me two replacements at no charge as I thought they were just marked wrong. However, when I got the replacements I found that they were just as small as the first pair. This is a great sock if it were the right size, but beware the brown must be mismarked and run small. If you wear a large or medium, the ex-large might fit you.

    I just bought 4 pairs of these for my husband. His shoe size is 12. So I chose the XL size. The socks were WAY too small. I did not want to pay to return them. So, I am wearing them . . . and I am an Lades shoe size 8! I don't see anyone else complaining about small sizing and I don't understand why not. And STP now has "irregular" in big letters on the arch of the sock, which they did not have in the past. We have bought lots of these socks from STP in the past, so although we gave the previous Smart Wool PHD socks five stars, I give this socks two stars to warn others of these issues, because it really is a pain to have to return online-bought items.

    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.
