This was my first pair of hiking socks. Before, I just wore regular socks during hikes and noticed that my hiking shoes started becoming abrasive and my feet would start hurting after about 2 hours. I contemplated getting a new pair of hiking shoes but decided to see if hiking socks would remedy the situation. Recently, I went on a 3 day campout with my friends. We hiked down a mountain and back up again. It was very primitive, steep and rough terrain - very hard on the feet. I wore these socks the whole time with my hiking shoes and felt as if I were walking on a cloud! They are very breathable, comfortable and never smelled. Great product!

Best Socks - Ever
When a sock slides over your heel as you put it on and it just sort of embraces your foot, you know it is a good sock and a good fit. I have a large foot, size 15, but the XL sock fit perfectly, without being too tight. The material has a nice stretch, and does not roll or bag. Wearing it all day was a pleasure, my feet stayed cool and dry, even during a long walk. The design is ingenious, with cushioning where it is needed, and thinner material where padding is not appropriate. I plan to buy more, if they are still in stock.

I have been wearing smartwool PhD socks for the past 5 years throughout the year for commuting to work by bike. Has a great snug feel and good durability. I took advantage of a sale to add a couple more to my collection

Socks with a PHD
Socks with a name? Sounded funny, but now I understand. These are not your grandfathers socks! They are unbelievable. Thicker where you want it, thinner where you do not want it. Great fit, and super comfortable! I will be buying more, and will be using my current socks to polish my car!
