My favorite winter socks!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by todd551 from High Desert, CA on Tuesday, February 1, 2011
These socks are knee high, super thick and very warm and insulating. I work in an unheated warehouse, standing on ice-cold concrete all day (in the winter). My feet are warm and toasty and I cannot feel the cold through my shoes. The cushion is the thickest of all the smartwool socks and provides extra comfort for standing and walking on concrete. I recommend these to all my co-workers. They stay up very well, no bunching. I wear size 9 women's shoes, but buy a large men's sock - 1) because my calves are "man" sized from the work that I do, and 2) so that I can dry the socks on high heat in the dryer, which shrinks them a tiny bit. These socks wash very well and can dry on low heat with no shrinkage. They are very durable; I am still using the first pair I ever bought. I love all the smartwool over the calf socks, but these are the thickest and warmest of them all. Love them!
