Great socks at a great price. They are great for hiking or for daily use. They provide lots of cushion and insulation. Might be a little warm for spring or summer but excellent at wicking moisture away. No more damp smelly feet! They tend to run a little on the smaller side. I am a Men's size 11 and I think the XL fits a little better than L. I own both sizes. They have the word IRREGULAR stamped on the bottom but after one wash, the letters were almost completely gone. Nobody is going to see the letters anyway since they blend into the pattern. I can't find the defects in the socks. My one complaint is that the socks do pill, much like a wool sweater. The thinner smartwool socks with more lycra and less wool content seem to pill less. At this price buy as many as you can. They are not sexy looking but they are really comfortable.
