We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

I love merino wool socks.
What do I not love about merino wool socks? They are super comfortable. They are great for warm and cold weather. They wick away moisture from your feet. I wear them to bed to keep my feet toasty. You dont need to wash them after one days use because they are woolmaybe after 3 days. Easy to wash in cold water (in machine on delicate) and then let t... Read Morehem dry hanging over whatever. They do cost more than other socks without merino wool but I think they will last a long time.
I love these socks- I have several pairs of lightweight merino performance socks in all the lengths and wear them all the time. My one complaint is when doing long runs or long hikes the ankle socks tend to slip down (they are just fine for shorter runs). I would love love love for Patagonia to make these socks in a quarter crew style or have an in... Read Morech or so up the ankle to keep the socks up during longer runs. Thanks Patagonia for another fantastic product!
Thank you for the review on our Lightweight Merino Performance Anklet Socks, we'll be sure to pass the word along about the slipping that happens with longer distance runs. You're in luck with your wish for quarter length, we have our [Lightweight Merino Daily Quarter Socks](https://www.patagonia.com/product/lightweight-merino-daily-quarter-socks/50135.html?dwvar_50135_color=BLK&cgid=womens-socks-underwear-socks) and they're fantastic, check them out!
Good but not great
I love the materials the socksare made of and the comfort of the fabric but the elasticity at the top of the sock is not substantial enough to hold the socks on and in place. On most days I have to take my shoes off and pull the docks back up because they have slid down to around my foot.
Thanks for the review on our Lightweight Merino Performance Anklet Socks. We're sorry about the slipping, this should not be happening. If you think a size down could help, feel free to get started on an exchange [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Love them for running, mountain biking, and everyday. They even make great slippers - just thick enough to take the edge off hard floors. Best sock I have ever owned. They hold up well to washing. I try not to put them in the dryer so they will have a longer life. Get a pair and try them out.
Soft and warm. Patagonia, please add XS!
These socks are soft, thick, and surprisingly warm. The only issue I have is that they're a little too big for me (like most Patagonia clothing), so if I wear them with my running or hiking shoes, my feet slide around in the socks, which makes it hard to have sure footing. They tightened up a little bit after washing in a cold & gentle cyc... Read Morele. I may try washing on hot to try to shrink them more. My size is women's 5.5, for reference. Patagonia, please continue to add smaller sizes (in this case, XS) to include your petite customers! Thanks!
Thanks for the sizing feedback. We're working on adding extended sizing across all of our line in the coming seasons.
After the first wash there were many tiny wool balls of a different color.
Hi Roland, we're so sorry to hear about the pilling problem. The Lightweight Merino Performance Anklet Socks are a knit item and will inevitably pill. We recommend washing them either by hand in cool to cold water, or in your washing machine folded inside out on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay them flat to dry rather than place them in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. Of course, if you are not pleased with the performance of your socks, you are absolutely welcome to send them in for a warranty returns evaluation under our Ironclad Guarantee. You can begin that process here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
All around winner
These socks check all the boxes: They feel great running, keep me a little warm when its cold, super comfortable, great colors, and great initial fit. They seem to hold up well (so far), although they may shrink a bit over time, so I may stop putting any new pair in the dryer. If I could, Id only wear Patagonias wool socks.
What can I say it's socks! They are nice. Would I purchase them again, maybe, maybe not.

High Quality, Run Big
As to be expected, these socks are classic high quality that you get with Patagonia. They are nice and soft on the underfoot with a little cushion, and thinner and tighter on the upper foot which makes them really comfy to run in. My only feedback is that they feel a little big; the heel sometimes schooches up to my achilles when I put shoes on. I ... Read Moream a size 11 and bought the large. It seems that this issue is getting better the more times they are washed, but it may behoove you to order a size smaller.
Other socks I've worn in the past, (athletic socks, meant to keep my feet cool), would just absorb moisture, and stay damp. Patagonia socks breathe, keeping my feet at a regulated temperature, and stay dry. Even after extended activity, and wear, these socks find their way back to dry. They don't hold odors either. It's all in the qu... Read Moreality materials. Completely worth it
High Quality Un-stinkable Sock
In the past I have typically worn Darn Tough socks and haven't really had a reason to try anything else. Unfortunately, they only make two colors of their ankle-high wool socks and I typically try to keep all of my pairs of socks unique. After learning that Patagonia made a similar sock, it made sense to give them a try and wow - I could not b... Read Moree happier. These socks do a great job absorbing moisture and it is not each to get them to smell bad (usually takes me two full days). So far they have held up well to hiking and running and have shown no signs of wear. All in all, these socks a great!
Best Lightweight Performance Socks
The first, the last, the best, and the most. Lightweight, breathable, quick-drying. Super soft fabric. Countless applications of these "foot gaskets" (as the youngsters call them). Many uses before the emission of odor. Follow washing instructions for optimal cleaning.
Just what I was looking for
Perfect for hiking in the PNW. The merino wool is just what I was needing: warm, but moisture wicking, and not abrasive. I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars as pine needles did find their way into the backside/heel of the sock. While I like that the heel is high enough to not slip down into my trail runners, its a little loose, and that allowed the nee... Read Moredles and a little dirt to get in. Overall, great socks.
Amazing socks, but size up if on the fringe
I typically wear a size 11.5-12 shoe, depending on the activity. I went with the large anklet socks instead of the XL. Ive washed them a few times and they still fit, but are predictably more snug. If youre on the fringe of the sizing chart, like 11.5, its probably best to go one size up.
Happy Feet = Good Life
The Lightweight Merino Performance Anklet Socks make my feet happy! They fit perfectly, are delightfully cushioned, and soft on the hand like a freshly groomed poodle. When I'm focused on a long hard climb, it's refreshing to get distracted by how happy my feet are in these new socks. Do yourself a favor, recycle your clapped out socks, r...

Ruined my laundry
My husband seems to like these socks, but the blue ones turned a load of laundry blue. The maroon ones did not dye anything that I saw.
Hi Ahsoka, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the socks dying your laundry. We'd recommend washing the socks with your dark loads of laundry rather than with your lights. With that said, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Way different than the cotton socks I've been wearing for 50 some odd years. The wool blend really keeps me cool. I guess it's time to embrace the new technology- wool, nylon, lycra, and ditch the cotton for a while. Only time will tell as to how long they'll last, but so far I've followed the care guidelines and have been gentl... Read Moree when washing the anklets.
Comfy for running or casual use
These are thicker than I expected and that's okay. The fit well, provide a bit of cushioning and don't slip. My second run in them was a road marathon and I had zero issues. However, they did have piling issues on the inside arch even after the first short run. I don't know yet if this will lead to a thinning/durability issue.
I’ve been having a hard
I’ve been having a hard time finding socks that are the right weight for hiking and other daily activities I do. Bought these to try and I’m LOVING them so far. Not to thick or thin, and super easy for my feet to breath in. Can’t recommend these enough, and I’m definitely planning on investing in more pairs in the future.
Wool broke down fast
The socks were lower quality for the price. The wool broke down and shed heavily after only a single use. They fit really nice, just don't think they will stand the test of time.
We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with your purchase. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them back to us under warranty.
Not as good as they used to be!
As a runner, I have used Patagonia socks for decades. But, I don’t like the new ones I purchased. First, they run large. Second, I prefer the older, thinner sock. And, third, I have to keep pulling them up or they would be inside the shoe and around my toes by the end of a run.
Sorry to hear that the socks have been a disappointment. You're welcome to [return](https://is.gd/DQq2nw) them to a Patagonia-owned store or send them in for a refund or merchandise credit.
Socks so smooth I forget I’m wearing them!
These socks are worth their weight (lighter than ever) in gold, or the price I paid for them! Comfortable, snug, and breathable so that I’m not thinking for a second about blisters or soggy toes. I highly recommend these socks to anyone wanting nothing less than an exceptional feel on your feet!
These socks are the business! Amazing comfort. I use them at work with low top steel toe shoes and they are incredible. I have tried MANY pairs of socks and nothing holds up like these. Obviously they are also amazing for hiking as well. Perfect fit, stay where they are supposed to , and keep your feet dry. Highly recommend.
Great everyday running sock
So glad they brought these back, still using my anklet socks from 3+ years ago!! I use these socks for daily running, they are great for all distances and are warm enough for most weather conditions.

Of all the socks I have tried over the past couple of decades, the Patagonia anklet socks are the best.
