2nds. Wicking, temperature regulating and designed to reduce the fatigue and speed the recovery of legs, SmartWool's PhD ultralight socks have a graduated compression design and non-cushioned sole to reduce bulk.

WOW. what great socks. as i get older i benefit from a little bit of compression and these socks fit the bill. the merino wool is of good quality and extremely soft. try a pair and see if you agree!!!!

These are great socks, quite lightweight, thin enough to get into tighter shoes & all the perks of regular smartwools with the added bennefit of compression recevery. Beware however these are quite effective at compression... if in doubt of your size you should probably size up. They are fine for me with my thin calves but my mother in law can't wear her regular size due to the tightness of the calves.

Since I was advised to wear support hose, I found these on Sierra nd purchased a few pairs. You can't have too many socks, right? Plus I love merino wool. They are very attractive and feel great. I ordered a few more the next time I made a Sierra order. I was wearing cotton cushioned compression socks all winter and when I wore the new merino wools I was surprised to feel a chill in my feet which doesn't happen with the cotton cushioned socks. So I wear a footie sock with then in my boot.

I'll wear this when I'm flying to get some compression and keep down swelling in my feet. To get more compression, I sized down to a S, though the size chart would have had me in a M. These socks are comfortable and in classic black don't look like compression socks, a plus for those of us who don't want to look like we have support hose on.
