Almost as good as Smartwool socks

Verified Buyer Reviewed by psb from Chippewa Falls, WI on Tuesday, March 23, 2010
I live in northwestern WI & I wear these for work in steel toed boots (and also when out doors for recreation activities and yard work). They work just as bit as good as my Smartwool socks, which until now, was all I've worn for the last 3 years. Although these claim to be "men" socks, they fit my "female" feet just fine. I wear a women's size 8 1/2 shoe, and the mens size 9 that I ordered fits just fine.

These are not as stylish (as Smartwool) and to look at them, the stitching inbetween the ribs appears cheap looking, but I've not had any problems with them pulling apart. They seem to have slightly more stretch than my Smartwools.

I've not washed or dried them yet, so not sure if they'll shrink or come apart. The crease across the toe area is not stitched quite like Smartwool's. It sticks out ever so slightly, but not enough that I can feel it when I'm wearing them.

I have been happy with these so far. If I can't get my hands on a pair of Smartwool med/light hiking socks for a decent price, these socks will be my next choice.
