2nds, barely perceptible blemishes. Nothing slows you down, but how about something to keep you going? SmartWool's PhD running socks are equipped with performance-oriented merino wool and WOW technology for cushion just where you need it.

I was surprised when I received these, since I usually love SmartWool socks. These were stiff, rough, and puckered at the heel due to poor quality stitching. I returned them. LOVED the Brooks running socks that I got in the same order, though.

Along with the 1/4 length SmartWool PhD socks, these have become my go-to running sock. They provide the optimal amount of padding for long distance runs while still allowing for quick, responsive movement.
I wear a size 9 in street/running shoes, but actually found the medium to be a good fit.

I love these socks because they're gray, and they go nicely with gray boat shoes, but c'mon Smartwool, I know you can make a better quality sock. Stitching is subpar, some of the sizes aren't accurate, and they just don't seem like Smartwool.

Decent socks. The quality leaves something to be desired, especially for a SmartWool product. Threads came loose easily and some of the socks were mismatched in size. I still wear them, but they're not my favorites by any stretch of the imagination.

ok so it may just be me but if a sock has seams on it really bugs me, they rub my foot when running and cause issues. this sock has less than normal but they are in weird places, two on the top of your toes and two on your heel/ankle area.
