Anna says:This knee high, offered in two great colors (it's true, I tend toward dark earthy tones, some may say boring, I say classic) is a staple in cool temperatures. It's not a performance sock, but as far as Smartwool's lifestyle line goes, this is one hearty foot hugger. The WOW technology (more wool) on the foot bed is very noticeable not only for its cushion and warmth, but it makes them more durable. Though they are not designed for cycling, I wear them for short commutes and they have been holding up very well. The neutral colors go well with everything and, since I generally wear short pants to keep them out of my chain, it is nice to have tall socks to make up the difference!

Very comfortable sock

(Avid Athlete) December 3, 2013

I have posterior tibial tendon dysfuntion; therefore, I have constant foot pain. As a veterinarian, I am on my feet a lot. Clogs are the best shoe for my condition at work but I need plenty of sock cushion. At times I have to wear 2 pairs of socks to have the right amount of cushioning. These Smart Wool socks are the perfect thickness for me. In addition, I purchased the knee hi socks and I have to fold them down part way so they don't constrict my leg too much just below the knee(this is true for all knee hi socks I've tried so maybe my calves are bigger than most females).

  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • Good Cushion In Foot Area
  • Good Design
  • Regulates Temperature Well
  • Stylish
  • Wicks Away Moisture
  • Daily Use
  • I Wear Them For Work
  • Fit: Feels true to size

Great socks, but....

(Casual/ Recreational) June 2, 2010

When I first got these socks, I fell in love. They were comfortable, stylish, and I could wear them to work and still look professional.

After 4 months of occasional wear, I noticed that the bottom of both heels had huge holes!! Now my nice socks are unwearable without some serious repair work. I am sad.

I'd buy them again if there was some sort of guarantee that they'd last longer than 20 wears... I've got other Smartwool socks that I wear a lot more, both casually and as cycling and walking socks, and have owned for longer, and they're holding up great.
