I own a few pairs of these. I absolutely have come to love wool socks for year 'round wear. These icebreakers fit me great. I wear a size smaller in ibreaker than I do in smartwool, but both brands fit and wear great. I don't baby them maybe like I should. .they just get thrown in the wash with ever... Read More
Reviewed by William from Alabama on Monday, February 17, 2014These wool socks are wonderful. They are warm and comfortable. Additionally, these socks are versatile. I have used them for everything from camping in cooler weather to a winter night out on the town.
Reviewed by Krustyklimber from Mineral, VA on Tuesday, February 4, 2014In the colder months of winter motorcycle riding season I'm wearing long underwear and heavy ski socks but I knew when it warmed up I was going to need something lighter, over the calf, and a little more breathable/hygroscopic than cotton gym socks.
These merino wool "lite" socks are the perfect answer to my needs. Considerably less bulky than the ski socks I need for extreme cold, snug formed fitting, and still heavy enough to prevent chafing at the top of my motorcycle boots and provide good padding and vibration damping in the soles and across the top of my feet.
They were listed as seconds, though, in the two pairs I got, I cannot tell why.
It remains to be seen, in the extreme heat of summer, if I'll need to go to a Coolmax type of synthetic socks... but, as a big fan of Smartwool and Thorlo hikers, I expect these Icebreaker merino wool socks to fill out the rest of my year's riding needs quite nicely.
Reviewed by kdschreck from Philadelphia, PA on Wednesday, January 29, 2014Love the technical aspects (who KNEW socks could be so high tech!!) and comfort of these socks. They are JUUUUST a tad bit thicker than the ultra-lite socks, so for me they are perfect for my cross country ski boots. But these are great for either downhill or cross country skiing. They "stay up" over the calf in spite of all the motion generated when cross country skiing. Same for low-tech activities like sledding and hiking too!
Reviewed by DKINY from upstate, ny on Sunday, January 19, 2014reliable and comfortable. Nice to wear on those cold days while skiing
Reviewed by Alex from Russia on Wednesday, July 24, 2013It is not dressed, but I liked the bright green color and quality.
