I love Smartwool socks and I have been running in these for years. I find the Smartwool to be more comfortable than other brands. They seem to not bunch up or wrinkle, but they are also not too tight or constrictive.

great sock for your lowtop hikers
Another great product from smartwool. One of the best wicking socks I own thats not a full length hiking sock. They do run on the small side of the size chart thou. I wish they would price these a little lower but you get what you pay for. Great performance and long life.

Best Smartwool Sock
I have 5 different Smartwool sock types and this is my favorite. These are great for hiking or casual biking but I also just wear them around town as everyday socks. They have a little more cushion on the heel and ball than the Outdoor Ultra Light.

Smartwool is the best!
I cannot believe just how much better Smartwool is compared to other merino wool socks on the market. The construction design and quality is second to none. The merino content is higher than that of its competitors. This sock fits better than the competition. It's got a good amount of stretch but it never feels tight or constrictive. This sock comes up high enough in the front and back (around the ankle) so as to protect your lower leg from abrasions against the shoe. This sock has cushioning where you need it and none where you don't. This sock is basically perfect. As for the fuzzies from washing: follow the laundry instructions. Turn the socks inside out before washing. This really does make a difference.

Socks get fuzzy after washing
So these socks are nice but they become extremely fuzzy after washing them. I'm not sure if it is something that I am doing wrong but it's something to think about. Thorlo's don't get this way.... also despite what everyone says, these do shrink a touch, not much, but they do shrink a little. Still fit great and will buy more, just gotta figure out how to make them not fuzzy...
