Rated 5 out of 5 by MadeinUSAretiree comfortable socks with only 1 washing
Normally, I prefer the comfort of old socks (before the holes develop). These socks were comfortable after the initial washing. No irritating inner threads needed to be cut out from toe area. Although top woven with elastic material, didn't bother me. Perhaps the longer length allowed elastic area to sit higher up on calf. A plus is they are made in the USA (foreign materials though). Bottom line, for new socks found these unusually comfortable!

I tried the women's Smart Wool socks, and they are nice but not as thick or warm as the men's version. That is not to say that the men's version are thick. They are not. But they are a little warmer without any bulk. I have long, thin feet; and I wear a 9-10, slim-narrow shoe. The men's Large fits me perfectly. I machine wash on Cool and line dry. No shrinkage or fading.

These socks fit well. They are warm and comfortable to wear with little or no itching. The color is very deep and looks good.

I wear size 9 women's shoe; I purchased these men's socks in a size large and they fit well, though the upper section of the sock is a bit tight--leaves a mark. My legs are not heavy so this is surprising. I do not put wool socks in the dryer so shrinkage is not the issue.

Title says it all. Comfortable, durable. The best socks I've worn and they stand up to the washing machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 10commoncents (How) smart wool socks
For a price of more than $15 a pair you expect superiority in the various areas of performance that exist for a pair of socks.
These failed in the specific comfort-when-standing category which is not to say they threw me off balance ... the discomfort I felt standing upright without moving was a sensation of rough sandpaper on the bottom of my feet due apparently to the course nature of the weave.
For a name like Smart Wool you should not only provide decent fit (which you do) and adequate cushioning (also sufficient) but comfort when standing still.
They are returning to their source ... glad to have a chance to provide this heads-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bcy419 Great overall socks!
Only had them for a few weeks now, but overall I am really enjoying these socks. Very comfortable with plenty of cushion. I will definitely be ordering more.

Great for work or play. Keep your feet warm, dry and hold up well in the wash without hand washing or line drying.

Purchased for my husband, knowing his feet were at the top end of the Medium size range. Washed & dried both pair before he wore them and they fit just fine. Kept his feet much warmer than the cotton socks he was wearing, providing comfort without the bulk of heavy wool socks.
We've washed & dried them several times since; they still fit and they stay up! He has requested more of the same - doesn't get better than that!
