Excellent hiking socks

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Travels with Kazakhs from Albuquerque, NM on Monday, January 19, 2009
I took a bunch of socks to Kazakhstan, and also purchased socks there. SmartWool socks held up for my two years without noticeable bald spots, through all kinds of walking conditions. I especially love that durability for keeping my feet warm when I'm walking in sandals, say if it's raining or I'm fording a lot of streams.
These socks were great layered under heavier socks in the really cold months. They fit snug to the foot (I wear a size 7 shoe and the small size sock) and don't get soggy.
After much washing with all of my other laundry, they did have a tendency to collect little lint bits, although this did not affect performance.
