The Smartwool PhD Outdoor Medium Crew Sock is a merino wool blend sock for the outdoor enthusiast. Hike, explore and ensure your feet stay comfortable by pulling on this softie. Merino wool naturally regulates temperature and with the combination of the mesh ventilation zones, toes will breathe happily. Indestructawool technology provides durability in high-wear zones, so the uphills and downhills won't wreak havoc on heel or toe. Thanks to a medium cushion, each step is properly comforted along the trail.

Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Fit For Me (I Like the Old Version Better) I've used PhD socks in Ultralight, Light, and Medium for years. I was excited to see these socks because of their claimed increase in durability. My others always seemed to wear out either in the big toe area, or on the balls of my feet. However, I really can't wear these due to fit issue. I'm a skinny dude, with pretty small calves, and even with that, the size L (my usual size) are restrictively tight in the calf area. The uppermost elastic band is just too small. And despite that, the foot is actually too big. It's sloppy loose on my foot, to the point that I can only really wear them around the house - they bunch up and move around too much in a boot or shoe. As I mentioned, I've always worn a Size L in smart wool socks, but I don't think I could go down a size in these anyway because of the tight calf issue. I'm disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart wool makes any other choice just silly... These socks are thick but not bulky, soft but strong, and warm without overheating your feet...I have bought Smartwool for years as the only socks for hiking or yard work...wore them in a big construction job all summer when my feet took a pounding from heavy weights & just being on them for long stretches...since they are wool, they keep your feet dry regardless of the temperature...they will now convert to being my hiking socks for the fall...and when the snow arrives I have Smartwool ski socks for cross country...this is the only brand I would consider buying...yes, like all good things, eventually they give way, but that takes a lot of time on the road....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Product! Purchased these socks a day before hiking up Pikes Peak...in fairly new leather boots. Yes, I know...not the wisest decision. What was intended to be a 13.2 miles ascent to the summit, culminated in a 26 miles, 16K feet, 13 hr ascent/descent as high winds and 65 mph gusts shut down the roadway and Cog RR (my intended descent). Bottom line...these socks performed amazingly! Though thoroughly exhausted I was elated that I experienced no blisters...at all. Surprised and grateful! I wholeheartedly recommend these socks! Ended up buying three more pair the next day...I'm a believer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walking on pillows... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The XL socks fit my size 12 feet perfectly. Soft material that seems durable. Perfect amount of cushion. Feels like you are walking on pillows but they don't absorb that sweaty feet smell. Wore them for a couple days on the trail and they still felt fresh each morning. I bought these on a recommendation and am incredibly pleased with the purchase so far. They have become my go to socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definetly will be purchasing more pair. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Socks are outstanding. I am a Firefighter and Paramedic. These socks go from boot to boot and in all types of enviroments and conditions. They hold up great, very comfortable and keep your feet dry and comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gone Downhill These are not even close to being as cushy and warm as the version sold two years ago. They are more like the Lightweight socks of two years ago, but without that special PhD cushion. I'll have to try some Heavyweights to see if the same performance is still available. Kinda disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sizing is true...dont think too much [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I normally wear size 9-9.5 shoes. Medium was too tight....go with the Large, unless you really light real tight fitting socks. Im sure they will stretch a bit, but it wasnt as comfy when i tried the size 10. Other than that....im not dissapointed at all! Took these babies on a 12 mile backpacking trip and no chafing, no blisters, feet stayed warm at night...absolutely loved it. my last three pairs lasted 10 years! And now im happy to buy new ones. Will be a great investment for my upcoming rtw trip!....also love the styles and colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and warm as usual, hoping they last I have always enjoyed SmartWool socks, but pairs I've bought recently have worn through very quickly. I'm hoping that the new Indestructawool feature makes them last.
