I own these and SmartWool New Classic Rib in navy. Wear both with my dark wash jeans interchangeably. Fit is true, color is indeed navy, and comfort perfect. No worries about my socks or feet all day. Wash and dry "normally."

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use

These make great dress socks. They breathe well so that my feet don't get clammy, and the cushion is great. Medium size fit well for my size 8 feet. I have walked a lot in the socks, and they are very comfortable.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

Great business sock
June 14, 2013

I unfortunately have to wear a suit everyday for work, but these socks make it a much more pleasant experience. Same comfortable smartwool feel I'm used to (and stay in place), but conservative colors and cut just high enough to wear with dress pants. Only complaint is that they do wear out after heavy use, particularly on the heel connection point.

The best!

I have worn Smartwool for years. I anticipate that the City Slicker will be a great every day sock for the summer.

I like the City Slicker line. They feel like cotton but perfome like wool. Smart Wool are the only socks I will ware. They hold up very well over time and are worth the price

Very Comfortable socks that are a great value. Great fit. Superior durability. Great socks for business or casual wear. Weekdays or weekends! Must need for those needing comfort and durability.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value

Best of both worlds
April 22, 2010

This is my first 3 pairs of Smartwool socks, and they work just as advertised: moisture free and yet thin enough to wear in everyday shoes. And they are classy as well, easily doubling for dressier attire. I'll be ordering more for sure!

Comfortable and Professional

I wear this to work every single day. They keep my feet comfortable and dry in what would otherwise be very muggy, leather office shoes. I wish they had more in stock!

These socks are comfortable and very breathable. The heel cushion is great especially if you are on your feet all day. I found they ran true to size. I no longer wear any other brand of socks.

Great socks
January 31, 2011

One of my sons touted the wonders of Smartwool socks to me during a Christmas visit. I immediately ordered some for myself and loved them, so my husband asked me to get him some. I am reviewing his socks. First and foremost, they keep his feet completely warm and dry in any shoe or boot, no matter what the weather. They are dressy enough to wear with his sport coats and trousers. The styles that are worn higher on the calf remain comfortably in place. Note: Though he is a true "medium-size" man, he needed size "large" socks. Be sure to read the size charts before ordering. Also, follow laundering instructions on package to ensure long-lasting quality. These socks are worth the price.

Pros: long-lasting, good style, comfortable, warm

great walking sock
November 17, 2012

These are great socks for walking in an urban environment. Just enough cushion, and they're wool, so they wick. I have a narrow foot, and my shoes are often loose. These socks are a bit beefy, and they improve the shoe fit tremendously.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

These are great socks that will keep your feet dry. They aren't that flexible/stretchable, but they fit great and keep my feet dry. Definitely worth it.

Pros: Build quality, Cons: Cost

Comfortable even in hot weather.
November 07, 2011

Dress socks made of fine merino wool that dries quickly are great even in Miami! They do not itch and never bunch up like cotton or cotton blend does.

Pros: Performance

Classy standard socks. I bought more!
May 11, 2010

Wonderful standard dress and casual socks with just a hint of cushion. I'm a fan of natural fibers, and I'm a wool believer when it comes to socks. Great at temperature regulation, but not as good at keeping your feet dry as Bridgedale socks. I wish Bridgedale made more 'dressy' looking socks. But I'm happy with my Smartwools.

excellent and comfortable

My husband complained about having cold feet. Wearing these socks has improved that problem. They look nice and can be worn for dress casual.

Cons: not enough color choices

Never disappointed

My son specifically asked for Smartwool socks for Christmas. They look great with dress shoes for the office.
