I'm around 42.5 EU size and went for size large, which was a mistake, the socks are way too big for me, so I ended up wearing them only around the house in the winter. I'd recommend you size down, as I did with the Trekking Heavy Crew and Hike Medium Crew and got a much better fit. The material is very soft and comfortable, it's a shame it doesn't really stay up the calf. Could be because of the size issue, but I'm 183cm with quite muscular calves, and the socks don't come all the way up to below my knees, which makes it easier for them to slip down. Also, I'm concerned about the durability, because after a few washes there are several bristles on the fabric.
I'm yet to find a sock that's more padded, comfortable and durable at the same time.
Wore it on a Lapland ski trip for the colder days, they were great, staying dry and warm, and didn't get sore feet despite the rental cross-country ski boots.
I usually wear a thin woolen sock inside to prevent blisters, but I think I could do without, for this one. Owned a pair for a year now, they're very durable.
Have been wearing it each time I need comfort or warmth, or even to "break in" some new, stiff hiking boots.
Great pair of socks. Nicely padded and suitably warm, and fit well on me (size 9) without rucking. Nice secure cuff means they don't fall down once on.
Really thick sock (will likely need you to size your footware a size up), gives you very cushioned steps and is amazingly warm. Up to now it has not loosened up and stays up mid calf as it should.Very comfortable sock for very cold weather.
Over the years, I've bought and worn numerous types of walking, hiking, climbing socks - but these are now without doubt my socks of choice. They are incredibly warm and comfortable and the reinforced sole improves their hard-wearing nature and comfort when wearing them for a long time or over rough terrain.
I now keep a pair or two for wearing around the house in winter too - no slippers for me!
So, I was even happier when the Advent Day offer gave me a free pair of Smartwool socks when buying two!
