Customer Reviews of Smartwool Phd Outdoor Light Crew (Winter 20)
These socks are the most comfortable socks I've ever had.I'd used another brand for many years and then was bought a pair of Smartwool Phd Outdoor Light Crew socks as a present.I was a little bit irritated that the person who'd bought them for me hadn't asked what brand and type I usually used.I walk around 1600 miles a year, and thought I knew best what suited my feet.Consequently it was a while before I wore the Smartwools - and I was hooked.A very different feel on the foot to what I was used to.Very comfortable, cushioned the bits that mattered, snug fit and hard wearing.I've been a fan ever since.I used to be a martyr to my feet, but I have not had a blister since I've been wearing the Smartwools.These latest ones are really superb.
These socks are surprisingly warm for their weight. They are also very soft, making them very comfortable to wear and to put on. Good choice if you have blisters on your leg or it's hurt for some reason!
Smartwool socks are the business: they provide an excellent fit and are superbly comfortable. I wear this weight of sock all year round in my approach shoes and have very happy feet! Be sure to consult the size chart carefully as the US sizing can be confusing. I bought the wrong size by accident which means they're too small for the intended recipient and I've kept them for myself!
The only thing I can say is that I am expecting them to get back into stock so I can order more! I bought it as a hiking sock but now it is my everyday pair of socks in everything but dress shoes. They are warm without being bulky - they stay in place and they support the foot in the most appropriate way. Honestly if I was asked to only own one kind of sock this would be it.
