Rated 2 out of 5 by pesti13 Not what they used to be
I am loving all the cute colours & designs that SmartWool has been coming out with...BUT (there's always a but)...I have worn SmartWool socks for about 10 years now, and my most recent pairs just don't stand the test of time. My activity levels haven't changed much - I have worn my new pairs on a few holidays where I did lots of walking and light hiking, and I have had to all 3 pairs - they either wore through at the toe or the heel area which was very disappointing. In comparison, my trusty older pairs that I bought 6-8 years ago are still going strong with no holes, even if they are getting a bit threadbare and losing elasticity. The difference seems to be the robustness of the base thread that is used - the old type lasts and lasts under heavy use and washing, the new type wears out extremely quickly. As such, I have changed my preferred brand to one that wears well like the SmartWools I knew and loved.

I have only had these socks on for a few hours and I just noticed they are pilling at the heel. I hope they will last because I do like the way they feel. Have not washed them yet.

I always wore cotton socks until I tried these and now I'm hooked. There not to thick and they keep my feet so warm when out in the cold . Also they don't itch and they wash up nicely.

I ordered the SmartWool socks in teal. They are beautiful to look at, but even better, when I put them on, I felt a supportive and warm effect. These socks stay up well, wash well, and fit perfectly. I hope to purchase them in another color (gray) when available.

Not only do my husband and I wear SmartWool but now my 9 year old daughter wears them too. No more smelly sneakers! Yes, they are comfortable, you can wash them like regular socks but the best feature in my house, is they help prevent smelly feet. I swear by them!

These Socks are truly wonderful . They perform as advertised. Just ordered 2 more pairs.The company improved the toe seam so it lies flat and this makes a big difference ,because now I wont get blisters because of the rough seam .Another color choice would be nice.I could get them only in taupe.

These are the socks I have been searching and wishing for. They are not found in any stores where I live so when the arrived, I was thrilled. They are thick, warm, and snuggle your feet. The best part is they can be washed like any other sock. Mind you - these are better than any sock you have felt.

This is my 6th purchase of SmartWood socks. After wearing the very first pair I was hooked. They do not sag or droop in your shoes/boots and feel like you are getting little massages when you walk. The only downside is that you will never want to wear any other socks but these and due to the price will have to get a part time job delivering pizza's to supplement your income to pay for them. Love them
