SmartWool Trekking Heavy Crew Sock

Yaks smell, your socks shouldn't.

SmartWool uses their long lasting blend of wool and nylon to make their Trekking Heavy Crew Sock as adventurous as you are. The sights and sounds of an exotic land should not be overshadowed by the smell of your socks. Arch support and padding aid in keeping foot muscles relaxed and protected during long trips. Wool has the ability to keep your feet warm and dry while the outside temperature goes from chilly to steamy. Foot funk and odors are naturally repelled for day after day on the trail. Wash these wooly socks in a stream and they'll be dry before you know it.

Worth the hype.

    Ok, wool socks? Sounds terrifying and itchy! Boy, am I glad I got over that attitude towards these socks. Listening to customers, and fellow Backpackers', I tested out a pair on a 10 day hike and couldn't believe I ever doubted the hype. I was just sad I only had one pair, which by the way I wore every single day. They kept my feet dry while regulating the temperature so they didn't overheat. Plus, wearing them every day in a pair of hiking boots, you'd think that they would smell right?! You're wrong. The Merino Wool actually neutralizes odor. So if you're looking for a sign you need these socks, this is it. Go ahead, test a pair.

    Warm and comfortable!

    I love how much cushion these had. They kept my feet comfortable all day in hiking boots.

    Sweet Wool Socks

    Gave it as a gift, but feedback below:
    "Perfect wool socks. They are soft, stretchy, and do everything wool socks are supposed to do."

    Exactly what you want them to be

      These socks are perfect, they have extra cushion from the thickness yet they don't bunch up in your boot. These are my favorite heavy sock, you won't be disappointed!

      Super warm and thick cushion! I bought these for backpacking and ended up wearing them to work on the pre-load at UPS. Saved my feet!

      These socks are super thick and warm. They fit great with my Merrell hiking boots and L.L. Bean Shearling Lined boots. I know every time I wear these my feet will stay warm. I would definitely buy again.

      Smartwool just makes great socks. I have many pairs and I will continue to buy more in the future. They are thick, warm, and comfortable. Can't go wrong.

      I love all Smartwool, and use these socks very frequently. They're warm enough for snowboarding, but breathable for cold weather hiking

      Very well-made socks, fit nicely, perfect length and keep your feet warm. My go to winter backcountry sock.

      Great socks!

      I love these socks. I use them for hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and lounging around the house.

      The XL fits my size 14+ feet perfectly.

      THICK

        I love smart wool socks. Just be aware these are super thick! That's the only reason why they get a 4 vs 5 rating. I wear them around the house in the winter and with my Sorel pull-on boots.

        These socks were purchased for warmth when cross-country skiing. They are bulky, cushy, and warm. They are made in the US which is always a bonus. shoe size 8.5-9 women's, M fits well. I like that the toe seams lie flat and do not irritate.

        Great socks to give and get for yourself

        Socks that are great for boots, home, or just stuffing in Christmas stockings. My sister's old pair were looking a little tired so she got the upgrade to a new pair!

        Warm feet, Warm sleep

        What's worse than sub-zero temps under a tarp in a snowfield in Utah? Waking up at 3am under said tarp because your feet are cold! terrifying! This was my experience BEFORE I bought these socks. I have 3 pairs now for when I work the backcountry winter as a field guide---one for AM, one for PM, and one pair that I keep exclusively for sleeping. They are soft, not scratchy, breathable, and wool is naturally anti-microbial so the stink stays to a minimum. I truly suggest these socks for long cold weather treks, or winter weekends camping out with the kids so your feet stay toasty!

        Great value and they are worth every penny. A great deal of padding all the way around and they are warm as can be. I just got them so can't comment on durability but they seem to be very well made so i have high hopes that they will stay like this for years.

        Good pair of Dude socks

        Yah mon, if its cold then grab these to keep those tosies warm.

        Specs wrong, but good looking socks

          I received these two days ago. The website clearly shows these are 80% merino wool, but the package shows 70%. I contacted a rep online and they told me "the site info has not been updated from when they changed the composition of the socks."

          So, hopefully they'll update their website soon so there's no more confusion.

          I haven't tried them on yet, but they look pretty solid.

          Smartwool is a smart choice!

            My feet are so happy with these socks. They are spending a lot of time in my boots, but needed a bit more cushion. These do a great job and wear well.

            Comfy and Burly

            Was looking for some thick socks for when it gets a wee bit nipply and these are just the remedy. Smart wool is hard to beat when it comes to socks to adventure in. These feel really really good. It's like I put two teddy bears on my feet and they are giving me a cuddly bear hug. Highly recommended!!!
