Rated 1 out of 5 by from No longer my go to socks. :( I have too many pairs of these socks to count! They are my everyday socks as week as part of my hiking sock system. When my oldest pairs started wearing thin I decided to stock up so I wouldn't run out. That was a mistake! The new version is a DISASTER! The logo stitched to the bottom is irritating and the tops are just enough shorter to make them less versatile. Also, the new fabric does not feel as good as the previous fabric. I'm glad I have enough unused pairs left to get me through the time it will take to find a new go-to sock. I am very disappointed that these socks are no longer my go-to sock. Smartwool, please bring back to previous version/design!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You changed the design without telling us! These are not the same SmartWool liner socks I've been purchasing and wearing for years. My old ones are wearing thing and I purchased 6 pair of these not realizing they would be heavier, with a thick SmartWool logo on the sole of the foot, taller on the leg, and much tighter around the calf. What a huge disappointment - to receive a sock I cannot wear because they are of a thick and harsh knit, as well as too high and tight on the calf. All I could do was rescue my old, thin, worn out ones from the trash bin and try to make them last another winter. What a huge disappointment. You've lost a customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent liner and can double as a warm dress sock I wear this thin layer sock under my regular sock (Smartwool PHD light hiker) to gain additional warmth without the bulk and it works great. I prefer fitted shoes with minimal sock bulk, so this pairing does the job when the weather turns cold and wet. I have heard that wearing liners also reduces hotspot (potential blisters) in ill-fitted shoes or on long treks.,,Incidentally, the weave is tight and fine so it looks just like a quality black dress sock with all the wicking and warmer benefits that most wool/blend and synthetic dress desperately lack. ,,P.S. my last package from Moosejaw was sealed with a kiss and it was kinda akcward to explain...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great... but logo on bottom caused rubbing/blisters I loved my previous pair of liners from Smartwool, they were starting to wear down in a few areas so I wanted another pair. I wear them under another pair of hiking socks to help prevent blisters. I don't know who thought a logo on the base of the sock would be a good idea. I now get a wonderful hotspot/blister in the shape of the logo on the bottom of my foot. This defeats the purpose of the liner. I love other smartwool socks and products but will not buy another liner sock until they change the design (ie. put the logo on the top/calf section). They also tend to fall down my leg more than the previous design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read a few complaints for the hiking liner crew sock. I notice a couple complaints on this sock that I wanted to address-- 1. Raised logo that causes blisters: The thin liner we are reviewing has no knit logo except for the little hiker guy on the cuff. The complaint applies to a different sock, not the hiking liner crew sock. I know, the picture of the product on the website shows a "Smartwool" logo, but it is not on the actual product SW 114. 2. Holes wear quickly on the toes: It helps to keep toenails clipped short and filed to prevent early holes in the toe box. However, that is the first place I develop holes, and I don't mend my socks--I discard them. My mother mended socks, but that was a different era.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not anymore, sadly I have used this simple liner for years...back to when it was 64wool/34/2. Tolerated the decrease to 59% wool. i am a nurse so on my feet all day, no blisters, no smell..go home and go for an evening walk in my boots with the same socks. They have worn well, would have bought them til I die. However, you messed with a good thing, the last 6 I bought no longer wear as well. Developed holes fairly quickly. Then you added the bottom logo which is annoying and so I can no longer use these. Please, consider going back to your original sock. I WAS SOOOO happy with them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NEW VERSION A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT Like others, I am so disappointed in the new version of the smart wool liner sock. The big change that has not been mentioned is that the sock is no longer 100% merino wool. It now contains nylon which makes it thicker, scratchier and less comfortable. I agree with a previous comment that the thick smart wool letters on the bottom of the socks is unnecessary and the tops are too tight. Like others, my old version lasted for years. I guess nylon is cheaper than wool so a great product is now ruined. Ironically, the new version is not cheaper.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I miss the old design of these socks! I have worn these socks for about eight years, and recently Smartwool changed the design to have tighter elastic and an embroidered logo along the bottom of the footbed. Both of these features are disappointments to me, since now they are too tight on my calf and are bulky along the bottom where they used to be smooth. It is too bad, since I LOVED the old version of these socks! Why change a good thing?! (Does anyone know where I can get a half dozen of the old style of these in black size M? Maybe there is a store out there with old inventory?)
