Nothing compares to the comfort and vibrant feeling provided by a brand new pair socks inside your favorite ski or hiking boots, and in case you did not get the memo, the best socks are made of wool. Smartwool is a leader in comfortable wool products. Wool is, of course, all natural, and it manages moisture and regulates temperature and odor better than any other material. Smartwool was founded on creating comfortable, non-itchy wool socks that do not shrink with every wash. Today, Smartwool offers a full line of wool clothing, but soft, long-wearing socks for hiking, skiing, running and daily wear remain the heart of their product line. Their award winning line of socks for men, women and children are guaranteed for comfort and performance.
Smartwool's line-up includes:
In lightweight styles you will find the most comfortable socks you have ever worn for running or hiking. Their thin, ankle-height running socks are super comfortable and so much more foot friendly than a cotton model. The breathability of wool helps make them so comfortable. Smartwool reinforces all of their styles with a blend of nylon and spandex or elastic. They pad just the right places, making sure your feet stay comfortable and the socks durable. Lightweight styles are available in every height you need: micro, mini, crew and knee high.
Do not underestimate thin and ultra-light socks for daily and sports use. Combined with proper fitting, a thin or ultra-light variety makes the perfect ski sock. Smartwool's PhD models are literally engineered for skiing. The performance fit includes Smartwool's 4-Degree Banded fit system and wool on wool technology for shock and abrasion support. The long-wearing PhD Ski Light is ideal for backcountry and cross-country skiing.
When it comes to hiking, Smartwool has you covered with crew and full height styles in a variety of weights for the right fit and comfort in your hiking shoes. Remember, we are not talking itchy rag-wool of old. Smartwool makes styling, soft new school wool socks. The variety of crew styles for day hiking and backpacking, means there is a sock that will help you perfect your boot fit.
Smartwool's hiking styles are equally at home as daily wear, but if you are looking for something a little more colorful , they have dedicated casual and daily wear styles, too. Their signature striped models are available for women and children. You can even get classic black dress styles for your Dad.
