SmartWool does it again

Reviewed by Winter Guy from USA on Tuesday, February 1, 2011
SmartWool got it so right with these socks. They are basically the perfect ski/snowboard sock. They feel light - almost too light. But, that's judging the book by its' cover. These socks keep feet warm even when wet, pull up very easily either against your skin or over long underwear are exceedingly comfortable, articulate well without any bunching or loosening throughout the day and while I didn't notice any actual padding difference throughout the sock the section that rests against your ski boot tongue certainly feels like extra padding is there. The texture of the material is different in that area and I guess that's the difference. Again, SmartWool nailed this one. Wash them inside out and hang dry - they'll outlive you. Oh, the socks I purchased had a large "Irregulars" stamp on them. Apparently, either no one at my home resort has x-ray vision to see through my boots, or chose not to attempt to read the bottom of my socks or were just polite by choosing to not point and laugh at me for this obvious fashion no-no.
