Love these socks!
January 22, 2012

Reluctantly purchased these for a ski trip to Colorado for Christmas due to the price, but as with most performance gear - you get what you pay for. They were extremely comfortable, never rubbed my toes or feet the wrong way, legs never got itchy, and my feet stayed perfectly warm the whole time with temp's ranging from 4-32 degrees. Since returning from the ski trip, I have used them for running with just as much pleasure. If they last long enough, I will be replacing my sock drawer with nothing but smartwool!

Super Winter Socks
January 26, 2011

I REALLY like SmartWool socks. I wear a 9 and in the past have ordered their medium sized socks, too small. So happy that Altrec carries a few styles of SmartWool socks in the large size. I don't wear these snowboarding, however, they are super walking around town socks to keep your legs toasty all the way up to your knee. Raspberry and orange colors make a nice pop for dreary winter weather.

Pros: Great design

Great Socks!
January 12, 2011

Purchased these for my girlfriend. She loves the fit, socks are comfortable. They not only keep her feet warm, but have support/cushioning in the right areas. True to size. Ordered women's large, she wears and 11.5.They are quality socks that washed well, have purchased the Smartwool brand before and will in the future.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Excellent socks. They don't tend to fall down (at least while skiing) and keep my feet very warm. They do fuzz on the bottom after a washing or two, but they are still great socks.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Wears quickly

PhD's socks are just great
July 18, 2011

I have several pair of PhD's socks, and I have also bought some pairs to my daughter. We use them when skiing telemark, snowboarding, cross country skiing and hiking up in the mountains. They fit very well and we never get blisters anymore. I do not know if it is only due to the socks, but I do know that having good socks is very important. We also like the bright colors. PhD socks as a gift is also a good idea. My friends they love them!
