Lightweight Merino Performance Anklet Socks

nice socks

great socks

January 14, 2023

Year-round comfort and warmth

Having feet that tend to run cold, these socks provide year-round comfort and warmth while wicking away moisture. No more popsicle toes!

January 6, 2023

Comfy and warm

I love these socks so much. They are so soft and fit so nicely. Sometimes ankle socks can be annoying around the ankle. But these sit just right. They also don't make me feel slippery in my shoes. I can wear them with hiking boots, sailing boots, Birkenstocks, tennis shoes, etc. and they work for all the above. I bought like 4 pairs.

January 6, 2023

Perfect ankle socks

I have two pairs of old smartwool socks that are like these, and have worn them threadbare because I loved them so much. These anklets are just right for jogging and any other time you like wearing an anklet sock!

January 4, 2023

Not great

Got XL for a size 12 mens shoe and they're not wearable. Consistently slips down off the heel within a few steps. Have repurposed them as glasses protectors since they're not functional as socks. Can't recommend.

We are very sorry to hear about the issues you've had with our Lightweight Merino Performance Anklet Socks. Please rest assured that we will be passing this feedback along to our Product Design Team so they can look into updating the sizing and fit of these socks.

Great sock!

Several years ago I purchased this sock for myself and I loved them! They are nice and warm but not too warm/bulky for our GA winters. This year I purchased as a gift to my husband who enjoys doing home snd yard work even in the winter months.

December 18, 2022

Very light, warm and fits well.

I ordered my first pair about 4 months ago. I wear it when I exercise. The fit is perfect, very light and warm. I was very happy with ordering them. I ended up ordering 6 pairs of these socks. They are one of the best socks that I wore. With other brands' socks, there are holes or tears even after only wearing 2 weeks. With these socks, no tea... Read Morers or holes. Wash with a mild laundry detergent, cold water and tumble dry. I definitely recommend others to try this pair of socks. Thank you

December 13, 2022


These socks are just what I was looking for...low and wool. The best material for my feet!

December 8, 2022

The perfect anklet sock

I have been on the hunt for the perfect anklet sock and I think I have found it. They are lightweight warm and most importantly comfy. They hold up well when hiking and running.

Scratchy Socks

Size and fit were very good, but I found the socks scratchy and itchy. Returned.

Bought 2 different pairs and they are great quality.

Merino wool socks

Tried a pair on a whim a few months ago. Pricey, but comfortable, sturdy, and well designed. Bought five more pairs on sale!

November 16, 2022

Quality Socks that feel great

I have been wearing Patagonia merino wool socks for years and with sensible care they last years. They are so comfortable and warm in the winter but surprisingly they aren't hot in summer. These light weight wool socks are the height of comfort and I have them in 3 colors and they are my go to socks for comfortable wear.

November 1, 2022

perfect socks

I was in Austin for a music festival when I realized I neglected to pack any additional socks. Luckily for me there was a Patagonia just down the street and they had a few pairs of these socks in my size. I have to say these are the perfect socks I have been looking for. They are soft, breath VERY well, and keep my feet feeling great all day. I put... Read More them to use immediately and was so impressed that I ordered 5 more pairs when I got back home.

The cushion is nice but

The cushion is nice but the socks fit horribly around the ankle area. These socks are constantly slipping down my heels.

Hey Samuel, thanks for the review. You might have purchased a size that's too big, especially if they're constantly slipping down. So long as the socks are in new condition, you're eligible for exchange. To begin that process, click [here](

Smarter than that other wool sock

Love the materiel and always choose Patagonia above all brands because of their commitment to everything good and important: their people, the worlds people they do business with, the planet. They do run small. I tried the medium bc I am a women's 9-9.5. But they were too small, squished my toes and continuously slipped down. No good! Fortun... Read Moreately Luke at my local Patagonia store in Boulder handled my return/exchange like a champ and I walked out with three pairs of large. They looked huge in the packaging but are working well so far. They keep my feet warm but not sweaty and wash nicely. Thank you Patagonia!

October 20, 2022

Excellent socks

These socks are great for hiking, walking and jogging (I'm too old for running anymore!). Warm without causing excessive perspiring, but also cooling in Summer. First pair (L) was too tight for my condition so subsequent orders have been (XL). My shoe/boot size is USA 10. My preferred sport socks. Not even close!

October 17, 2022

Great running sock

Super comfy and durable. Been using them on runs. Bought one pair and liked them enough to buy another.

October 16, 2022

These are my go-to. They

These are my go-to. They are a little soft on the first run but perfect after the first wash. I have been running in them for about 4 years.

October 5, 2022

Great looking

I purchased the grey with orange stripe. They are both super comfortable and good looking.

October 3, 2022

A little large

I am used to my athletic socks fitting snugly, which I like because I don't have to worry about bunching in my shoes. These socks are very comfortable and soft but compared to other brands I wear (Bombas, Smartwool) these are less snug. I wear a solid size 10 shoe and bought the size recommended for that, I would have ordered a medium for a mo... Read Morere snug fit.

Love these socks.

Comfy and Smell-Resistant

These are really plush-feeling socks and are really comfortable while hiking/walking/running or just lazing about. I have warm/sweaty feet (sorry for the details) and will re-wear pairs of socks for my runs until they start smelling funky. These socks, even after 5 back-to-back hot summer runs ranging from 4 to 8 miles, didn't hold onto any o... Read Moredor.

Most comfortable socks

Merino socks are the most wonderful thing on your feet, moisture wicking, prevents blisters, my feet are happy with these!!

August 24, 2022

Cozy Merino Socks

I was hesitant to pay the price but they do fit and feel super cozy. I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

August 4, 2022

Great socks for summer activities

These are lightweight, breathable and perfect for summer hiking or walking. They are very low cut (no-show) socks.

July 30, 2022

Hole After a Couple Wears

Nice socks but they didn't last very long. The toe seam opened up after only a couple of wears.

Great so far!

Comfortable with a great fit. Not too constricting. Get em.

June 21, 2022

Poor quality

I'm a fan of Patagonia clothing. I needed some new socks and thought I'd give them a try, despite the high cost. In the first use, the elastic keeping the socks on behind the heel was week, just about slipping off at times. FYI, I'm a size 9.5, and I thought large was big enough based on thier chart. Also, after the first wash the so... Read Morecks started to pill. I usually get my socks at Costco, 10 pack for the price of one pair at Patagonia! They last forever with no pilling. Again, I'm a fan of all other clothing that I've purchased over the years. These socks are just very poor quality.

Perfect Sock

Best socks! Good for all climates, and activities. Used for mt running in both warm and winter weather. Solid under sock either lengths, also longer pair great for boots. Highly recommend

June 13, 2022

Nice socks

These are better than I expected. Nice socks

May 31, 2022

Heaven for your feet

This sock is the truth, soft, wicks sweat, did I mention soft? Feels like I'm walking/running on clouds.

May 28, 2022

So comfortable and light

I have fallen in love with the comfort of these socks, especially top of heal. Colors are fun and trendy. I am buying my older brother some of these, were are same built.

May 19, 2022

So comfortable!

The best socks! So comfortable, soft , nice cushion, breathable

May 17, 2022

Nice material, just runs small

After a year or so of year, the stretch is gone. The socks are still very comfortable and regulate heat well (good for winter and summer). My only complaint is that after a few washes, they have shrunk noticeably. I wear a size 10, so I bought a large. The size chart says large runs up to 11 but it feels more like a 9 1/2.

Very comfortable

Love these socks. I have 3 pairs and wear them all the time. Very comfortable and perfect fit. I wear size 12 shoes and bought size L.

May 1, 2022

Perfect All Around Sock

I use these socks exclusively. Hands down my favorite pair and work great with athletic shoes all the way into cold weather hiking boots. I've used them from freezing temps all the way to 105F+. Fit is amazing and the material in the back of the foot protects the achilles from blisters and abrasion from any shoe

May 1, 2022

Great fit

Fits well , comfortable,very well made

May 1, 2022


Quite comfy, but slip down on my heel.

April 29, 2022

merino ankle socks

These are a great fit and of good quality. I have purchased another wool brand and the heels wore out unusually fast, hoping these last longer

April 28, 2022

plush n snuggly

A pleasure to put these on. I have each color now. Use them for workouts, runs, and errands. On long trail runs, I do keep them under gaiters because they hold burrs, foxtails, seeds, goatheads.

April 22, 2022

nice feel and color

These socks are on the light side but warm and comfortable. Love the vibrant colors! Only downside is the fabric is a magnet for small debris so I'm constantly picking things off of them.

April 19, 2022

Quality material, great for everyday use

I prefer ankle-high socks, but off-brands inevitably wear out around the heal. These Patagonia socks are colorful and well constructed. No noticeable wear yet.

April 18, 2022

Most Comfortable Socks I've ever owned

Bought a few pairs of these and ended up replacing my entire sock drawer with them because I couldn't go back to wearing anything else. Super snug, reasonably warm, the tab at the back protects from any shoes that might rub on your Achilles. All in all, great socks, albeit a bit expensive

March 26, 2022

SO comfy!

I just got my fourth and fifth pairs of these wool shorty socks. I live in hot Tucson and love the wicking, the springy loops on the sole, and the perfect stretch fit. I hang dry. The two blues are a JOY to wear! The two year old plum pair is a little less springy but still going strong.

March 19, 2022


Feet keep dry and cool and not sweaty after a day of work or some running.

March 19, 2022


Stays put, warm without being bulky or hot, love these socks

March 19, 2022

Best Ever

Extremely comfortable. These have to be the best socks I have ever purchased. I dont like to feel the seems on my toes when I walk and these socks solved the problem. Kept me warm in the cold and comfortable all at the same times in the heat.

March 15, 2022

go-to for a cush embrace

Always reach for these in the sock drawer -- unless I'm headed into a situation where I would ruin them. Not because they couldn't take it, but because I couldn't take ... saying goodbye.

These are the worst socks I have ever worn. They don't stay on your feet, which is the literal point of wearing a sock. Pilled up badly after first wearing.

I wear a size 12 shoe and the large fit well. Nice socks

January 23, 2022

Great Socks

I really like these socks- they are padded on the bottom and thinner on top to let the feet breathe. They also have the little tab in the back to protect your heels from rubbing.

Best socks ever

These socks are perfect. don't need to change a thing! I use the anklet socks for active, and the higher ones with casual boots and jeans. They don't fall down, they don't wear out, they fit snug but not tight. The fabric is soft and stretchy. Best ever.

Very comfortable and supportive! They do pill up quickly though.

socks don't hold up!

It didn't take long before the socks would slide down below my ankles to the inside of the shoes. These socks do not have any support. Very uncomfortable socks!!!

I love these socks! I wear them often. They are thicker than you would think but it gives a nice cushion for hiking.

Great durability, warmth, and fit

These socks actually keep my constantly-cold fit fairly warm - a huge compliment from a cold-footed woman. They don't pill and stay put on the foot.

September 1, 2021

amazing fit!

the depth of the weave of the sock varies which makes for such a snug that doesnt lose its shape even after one wear, and then walking around the house in them. they still fit. keep their shape. the only other sock that modulates the weave to fit our feet is darn tough. glad to see patag with such a stellar product!

August 18, 2021

Lightweight and just right.

Was looking for this style but wanted something lightweight and this is it. Very comfortable.

July 29, 2021

A nice snug fit

Im a US9 and the L fits perfect. Made of nice material to absorb moisture and the socks do not slip when I run. Please provide more colour options Patagonia.

July 28, 2021

Socks that fit

Wearing a size 13 shoe makes it hard to find socks that actually fit. Most socks are for up to a size 12.5 shoe, and those run small in low cut/no show socks. These are very comfortable and feel great all day in the hot Alabama weather.

July 20, 2021

The only sock I use for running

...well i do have a few toe socks but his is my daily driver sock for running or working out. Not the cheapest but worth it to me because they are comfortable and have lasted many miles and many more washes. Padding is spot on too.

I have worn these socks a few times wet wade fishing. They are super comfortable and keep my fit reasonably warm in cold water. I would recommend these for anyone in mildly cold weather situations or as a base sock in winter cold months.

May 7, 2021

super comfy!

I love these socks- I have several pairs of lightweight merino performance socks in all the lengths and wear them all the time.

My feet enjoy wearing these socks. They feel more breathable than wool socks from other brands I've tried. And I really appreciate Patagonia's commitment to people and the environment, which is why I'll keep buying these over other brands. Thanks, Patagonia.

April 20, 2021

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.

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.

April 3, 2021

A perfect fit

I purchased three pairs of these anklet socks. For health reasons, I rarely leave the house. These socks are highly functional - warm and snug without feeling constricting, Highly recommend!

Great socks. The only downside is the XLs run a little small.

Super comfortable and hold up to a long days use. Comfy as well without being too hot that you expect from anything wool. Ordered three more pairs after my initial pair and will order more!

Durable, Soft, Breathable, Fashionable

I really dig these socks. They stay put, avoid heel burn, hold up well, feel great, allow my sweaty feet to breathe, and look pretty great in any shoe. I liked my first few pairs and went back for more.

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.

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,

The extra ankle coverage makes for a great sock.

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.

Super soft/super durable

I'm an artist/photographer who is outside a lot. These socks are the best - soft, warm, they dry well. I plan on ordering a couple more pair!

Super soft, extra comfy

Love these socks! Always my go to pair for running! Lightweight, padded and not to hot.

September 13, 2020


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

Best Sock Out There

These socks are just great. There's not a whole lot else to say. They fit perfectly, tend to not get stinky, and dry very quickly. Of the 20ish pairs of wool socks I own, these are probably my favorite.

Perfect year round

Great socks!! Fit is good and they stay up on your heel, wear them every day!

September 1, 2020

Very Comfortable

Very soft and comfy. They wick sweat well, dry quickly, don't stink, and they stay in place. They are a bit warm for hot summer days, but the wicking/quick drying compensates for that.

September 1, 2020

Very comfy, but shrinks a little.

I'm a 10 or 10.5 in shoes. These socks, in large, are right on the border of being too small. If you are on the edge of sizes, I would order the larger size. Because they are wool, they shrink a little. But, they are super comfy!!!

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.

Perfect All Rounder

Great all around sock to go from sport to shopping. Breathable and light weight for spring to fall activities.

Warm, soft, durable

I love these socks and could wear them every day. They kept my toes warm during 2 days of rain on a bike camping trip. They dried quickly and held up after wearing them repeatedly day after day on a week long bike trip.

Very Comfortable

I noticed some piling on the heals but I am pretty sure that wont effect longevity. The socks are very comfortable and look nice.

wanted new anklet socks, that stay in place and don't slide off heal. works perfect. cosy feeling on skin.

Great socks!

These are very comfortable socks and hold up much better than others I have tired. They breathe well and have just the right amount of cushion.

June 19, 2020

No slip

I really like these socks. They dont slip down like some ankle socks, and the tab in the back sticks up just enough to prevent heel blisters. They dont get soggy when I sweat a lot. Fun colors. Whats not to love?

Just Perfect

Not too thick not too thin. Will get me another pair.

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.

love em

i have run in patagonia wool socks for more than two decades. you may find cheaper socks but they wont last. i still wear patagonia socks that i bought more than 12 years ago. i love em.

Mo betta for your feetsa

Good fit. I mainly use them while working bike rentals shop. Keep feet dry, dont smell, and comfy with sneakers or hiking boots

Very comfy

I was hesitant to order the wool version of my favorite socks. Glad I did - very comfortable.

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.

May 11, 2020

Great fit...perfect for all uses.

I wear these from daily wear to running/liking and they work all along the way. Great product and quality.

May 1, 2020

Great Socks

I wear my Lightweight Merino Performance Anklet Socks every day year round. I like that the slight rise at the back of the ankle prevents ankle rub from my sneakers and trail runners, and that these socks are thin enough to fit comfortably in my climbing shoes.

Perfect Running Socks

Good to go on very long runs. Extremely comfortable the entire time.

Great sox!

I gave one pair to my wife and two athletic daughters for Christmas. They wore them constantly between the 25th and Jan 1st. All three said they were the best sox they've ever had!

So Comfortable

I got these for my boyfriend. These quickly became his favorite socks to wear all the time. They are so soft and warm. Highly recommend.

a little thicker than the last patagonia wool lightweight socks i bought. these wick moisture away, dry fast and feel great. i have patagonia socks that i’ve been running in regularly for more than 10 years. patagonia wool socks last. love ‘em.

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.

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.

Response from Patagonia
December 27, 2019

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](

Nice socks, small fit

I ordered the large and wear size 10.5 but on my first 5-mile hike one of the socks was barely covering my heal and I was getting a blister so sadly I had to return them because they are very comfy socks, but my pair ran small.

November 28, 2019

Warm and Cozy

Love these and will be ordering more!

Anklet Socks

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 Sock

These socks are very comfy and I expect they will last a while. During casual wear I encountered no issues with slipping or anything like that.

November 2, 2019

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.
