  • Size Bought: Medium

Love these socks! I did go with the size chart recommendation which was to get a medium for a size 7 shoe size. For all my other SmartWool socks that has been dead on but for these I feel like they were just a hair to big. After washing/drying they haven't quite fit perfectly yet. They still stay in place and are still great but I probably could have gone with a small on these. They have been perfect for all my winter activities whether that be hanging out at home on a winter night or hitting the slopes! So warm and so comfortable.

So great!

These socks are great! They are extremely soft, comfortable and have quite a lot of cushioning. They are warm enough when the temperature drops, but I was very comfortable (i.e. not too warm) wearing them earlier in the season too. I definitely recommend giving them a try.
