Verified Buyer Reviewed by jwhiton from Chicago,IL on Saturday, February 14, 2015Fun, interesting design. Great for wearing with boots! Calf a little tighter than I usually see with smartwool.
Reviewed by Cruiser from Littleton, CO on Wednesday, January 14, 2015I picked these up for cool weather running (to keep my calves warm) and took them out for a test run on Sunday. They were fantastic! They stayed up really well through my 5 mile jog and were so comfortable that I ended up wearing them around the house while I did some other jobs on my honey-do list. They have just the right amount of cushioning to wear with running shoes or ski boots but they might be a bit too thick to wear with dress shoes. Either way, the construction, materials, and style are about as good as I could ask for. Another Smartwool triumph. Thinking about picking up a second pair!
Question & Answer

“Are these socks light-weight?”
They are medium weight;. I have these and light weight Smartwool PhD merino wool socks - these are approx 30% heavier than those which are described as light weight.
They are comfortable and do not feel too tight when worn in my ski boots. When I wear the light weight ones, I also wear a silk liner sock.
They are ski socks for sure, so I would say mid-weight. I typically sweat in my ski boots and then get cold feet, with these I had no issues and was comfortable all day long.
These socks are definitely intended to keep you warm.
I wear them around town under my boots, and my feet stay very warm.
If you are intending to use them for skiing, I think they would fit well under a ski boot. But they are too thick to wear with clogs, for example.
The specs on these socks say they are mid-weight sock. They seem not too bulky (I have only seen them on the people I gave them to for gifts) and they have both said they are enjoying them. Both of the recipients are people who are not prone to saying they like gifts that I have given them
(offspring)-- so this is a good sign. Both are also former RISD students but they liked the sock for its warmth as well as the design.
Though I have not worn these exact socks I have purchased mid-weight Smartwools and found them warm enough for most winter days in New England as well as smoother and less annoying in the boot or shoe.
I would say more like mid- weight. They fit like you'd expect with a ski sock. They do come all the up to the bottom of the knee.
No, they are heavyweight.
I guess that depends on what your definition of light-weigh is. In my opinion, they are more toward the heavy weight sock. They are fun.
No, I wouldn't say so. Not compared other to SmartWool socks I bought that were listed as lightweight. I would say medium with skier padding.
The socks are medium weight. Very comfy, fit is great!
