Very good sock, worked perfectly in new boots with the merino smartwool midweight sock. I would definitely recommend these as a base sock because of their comfort. I walked 12 miles in new boots with these socks and I was nothing but impressed.

Ideal for long treks
I bought these socks in advance of a 9 day trek in the Himalayas. My main hope was that they would: (a) keep my feet warm; and (b) prevent rubbing/blisters. Not only did they do this admirably, they also have an extra bonus feature - they are quick drying, in freezing conditions. This was extremely useful, as I ended up wearing the socks everyday and, without washing them, things could have got nasty! If anyone is heading off on a similar adventure, I would certainly recommend taking a pair of these socks.

Good socks - would recommend
Bought these to go under scarpa B2 snow climbing boots. Great fit, no hard spots or rucking, very warm, no sign of sogginess after a long day's walking.
