Rated 2 out of 5 by purplecrone Very poor heel fit
I own about 8 pair of the mid-weight version of this sock and swear by them. I had no reason to expect anything less from the lightweight version. I ordered the medium size for my size 9 foot. I found that the heel on these socks is very loose. The heel fit is what the old cotton tube socks of childhood fit like. The heel wrinkles under my foot when wearing hiking boots/sneaks. When I take the boots off the heel is stretched out of shape and baggy. This is not the case with the mid-weight version of this sock. Poor design quality. Don't buy the lightweight version. LL Bean - please get in touch with your supplier of this sock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Oregon1 Perfect fit
I was tired of heels of socks going bare so looked for some good quality socks at Bean. These are it. They are not too warm for a Spring day, they fit perfectly (size M), they are attractive, and I got 2 pairs/order. I just ordered 2 more pairs in different colors.

These hiking socks provide a great amount of cushion and fit like a glove when worn with recently purchased hiking boots. Have worn them all day and only when retiring for the night did remember that had items on. LL Bean thanks for a great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by Twinmamabear I love love love these socks!
I bought these socks to go with my LLBean boots (not the hiking ones), and while they are too lightweight to wear with those boots, they are WONDERFUL with a pair of sneakers. I don't hike, but I can imagine they would be great for hiking. These socks are so incredibly soft and comfortable. I would buy more of these socks but the cost kind of holds me back for everyday use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by my3dogs comfortable/breathable socks
Wanted lightweight pair of socks that did not fit too tight around my calf. These fit the bill. The socks do have extra cushioning in the forefoot and heel so are not very light socks. Each time I put them on, I think they will be too heavy but my feet are comfortable in them and don't sweat. Wear a 6 1/2-7 shoe and medium is perfect for me with a bit extra length. Because of extra cushioning in toe area, I am aware which shoes give me more room to allow my toes to wiggle. Not scratchy. Neutral color,nice looking.
They are comfortable for long walks on pavement with my large dogs.
They wash well and air dry overnight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SMOC999 Best Hiking Socks
These are the best hiking socks I've every owned--comfortable, just the right thickness for 8-10 miles hikes with a light pack. I'll be buying more. Love the turquoise color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jennieo34 Great weight and good comfort
I like these socks a lot. The weight is not too thin or thick, fit is great (hard to find large women's socks to say that about, for me) and I've worn them quite a few times for several mile walks and been happy with how my feet felt at the end. What more can you ask for?

Socks wear and wash well. Can be worn in 60 degree weather and not be too hot. I wear size 9.5 to 10 in shoes and the large sock fits perfect.

I have been a Smartwool Brand customer for years and thought I would give these a try..... After only a few weeks, there was a hole from the wear at the ball of my foot~Waste of my money.....
