Cum Laude in coziness.
Earning honors for its moisture-wicking coziness, the SmartWool Women's PhD Outdoor Light Mini Sock makes easy work of demanding summer hikes and grueling trail runs. It's designed with a women's-specific fit, meaning it'll feel like a glove around your feet with its narrower profile. The virtually seamless toe eliminates the scratchy, irritating feel of traditional socks, especially when you're wearing tight-fitting running and hiking shoes.
The merino wool blend and mesh venting work harmoniously to regulate foot temperature, drawing moisture off your feet for rapid evaporation as you begin to sweat. Another benefit of merino wool is its superior softness, which won't become itchy or stiff after washing, subsequently meaning your feet will stay comfortable for hours on the trail. It's also naturally resistant to funky microbe growth, lending hours of continuous freshness, even when you're sweating profusely in hot weather.

Socks fit great. However, they made my feet sweat too much during the summer months.
Great socks for 8 hour shifts!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I got these for my girlfriend and this is what she has to say!
"As a barista, I frequently work 5-8 hour shifts without sitting for more than ten minutes. These socks really help my feet feel less tired at the end of the day (and they don't smell because of the wool). I love them!"

Smartwool has never let me down in the past, and once again they packed a grand slam. I'm very particular when it comes to footwear, and was stoked to find this lower cut sock that still had some thickness to it (adding durability and padding). The brown doesn't show the dirt at all, and even after 2-3 days of continuous use while backpacking they didn't get crunchy or smelly.
