Icebreaker socks are simply the best socks I have owned. Most comfortable, long lasting, warm and odor free. These socks are my favorite for hiking as well as everyday wear. I also have several pairs for skiing and they are great too!!

This is my second pair of the hike mid crew socks, finally having worn a hole in the original pair after 4 years of steady use. Icebreaker makes the best wool products around. These socks are comfortable, durable, keep their shape, and have just enough padding without being obtrusively bulky. In general, Icebreaker socks are the best socks you can get.

I bought these socks for a trip to the Boundary Waters. They are extremely warm and comfortable. I found that I could wear them all day and night and they wouldn't even start to stink. I found that I now wear them for everyday socks because I enjoy them so much.

Well...I must say that I'm a fan of Icebreaker products. I own multiple tops and bottom layers but this is my first pair of socks. They are impeccably made and fit the foot very snugly. No need to repeatedly smooth the sock down on your foot before putting your boots on. They have a great feeling of quality to them. This particular sock is a mid weight. It is nicely padded in all of the right places and gives the impression that it would stand up under a really long hike..I've only gotten in 5 miles max so far and they stood up beautifully. I know there are a lot of makers of wool products out there...In my opinion, Icebreaker is delivering the best quality merino wool products of anyone.

Great for Cool Weather
I haven't used these socks for hiking; Instead I use them fort all-around use during the cold winter months where I live. They keep my feet warm whether shoveling snow in tennis shoes (sometimes I'm too lazy to put on boots) or sitting at a desk in a cool warehouse where I work. I'm impressed with how they're holding-up and have no reason to expect they won't provide a long use-life. It's also worth noting that they're itch-free and the size medium fits perfectly on my men's size 9.5 foot.
