Lightweight Merino Performance Crew Socks

True To Size
March 16, 2023

Perfect socks

I cant get enough of these socks. Perfect fit, perfect thickness in the right areas. Im in love

March 16, 2023

Amazing Socks

Perfect fit. They are so soft and warm. I would highly recommend these socks.

March 16, 2023

Super Comfortable

These wool socks are so incredibly comfortable. The XL was a perfect size. They have a nice stretch to them so they sit comfortable around the lower calf but they're tight enough to stay up. I will absolutely be buying more pairs of these. Another home run product from Patagonia.

February 11, 2023


I have at least 3 pairs of these socks & they are near perfect. They are comfortable for hiking, every day use, & running in colder temperatures as well. I also have a couple pairs of the every day use socks, & find the performance socks to be a better fit & more comfortable. I would buy more if there were more colors & availabl... Read Moree in XL. On a bit of a tangent & slightly off topic, I noticed Patagonia no longer offers pants in long inseam. This makes me sad. I have several pairs of the cords, & denim jeans I could live in giving their comfort. I would've bought more of them if offered in more colors. I hope Patagonia hasn't given up on us taller folks. Please bring back the long inseam pants. Thank you for listening to my tirade.

Great cozy warm socks ,

Great cozy warm socks , fit well with some compression , not too much , keeps feet dry , warm , not too thick , very comfortable!!

February 5, 2023

warm, comfy, and lightweight

love these. i have two pairs. normally womens size 8.5-9. got a size small

February 2, 2023

Patagonia socks are my faves!

Liked the Seventies' look ... sadly, I was in high school back then. First pair in Large just a bit tight for my taste (size 10.5 shoe), so subsequent three pairs in XL are perfect. I have two in white and two in black with the blue tops. I really like the quality of the wool in these socks and I find them to be warm but not hot. So good that ... Read MoreI now also have two pairs of the wool running socks and two pairs of the ski socks in addition to these. My old cotton socks have become very lonely in the back of the socks drawer!

January 31, 2023

Warm socks

Warm socks, yet breathable for my feet. The crew length is perfect for colder days.

January 30, 2023


These socks are fantastic--just cushy enough, but not too bulky, tight enough to stay up but not to dent my calves, and really lovely. They're mostly black, but with a cool, subtle geometric design visible close up. Really, who wants boring socks? These are perfect!

January 29, 2023

Super comfy and warm

Warm, warm, warm.

January 26, 2023

Great socks, they shrink tho

These are great socks, probably my fourth or fifth pair. I am size 11-12 so I got extra large, but I find they still shrink a bit after a few washings.

January 26, 2023

Super comfy

Ive loved these pair of socks since I got them. I even order 2 pairs!! Thumbs up Patagonia!!

January 25, 2023

Great socks. Warm, comfortable, soft

Great socks. Warm, comfortable, soft

January 25, 2023

Super warm and super comfy!

I absolutely love these socks. My first pair of Patagonia socks and I will be buying more. I live in the NE where it's very cold. These keep my feet warm and cozy. 10/10

January 24, 2023

My favorite socks

These are very versatile, warm and comfortable in a wide variety of situations.

January 24, 2023

These are really nice

These are really nice long as you have no issues with sizing. I ordered XL size as the chart included size 14. Boy, if I have a really skinny size 14 foot, I may get into these. Unfortunately, I'm discovering that Patagonia doesn't really mean 14's will fit many large feet. It's a shame.

Response from Patagonia
January 31, 2023

Thank you for this sizing feedback, Gary; we will share it with our product staff. In the meantime, we'll reach out to you about returning these pairs, since it sounds like they aren't going to work for you.

January 23, 2023


I have only used it once but it feels good on my feet. Has a strong and reliable feel to it.

January 20, 2023

Very soft and comfortable

I purchased these to have a lighter pair of long socks for cooler weather. They fit and feel great.

January 19, 2023

Perfect socks

Socks matter. No point in wearing socks that don't fit, don't keep your feet comfortable, or just don't do the job. These do that well. simple - the fit is spot on, the height is just right, perfect weight for outdoor activities, and they have just enough compression to stay upright all day. And, I'm a fan of black socks - the n... Read Moreicely colored stripes and Fitz Roy silhouette are just icing on the cake.

January 18, 2023

Super soft

These are the softest and most comfortable socks I have worn in a while. They have extra layers of fabric on the bottom that makes me feel like Im walking on a cloud.

January 16, 2023

Great feel

I love how these feel out of the box. I give 4 of 5 stars because they seem to wear out relatively quickly...holes in less than 6 months. But to be fair I beat them to pieces. Thank you.

January 14, 2023

Just great socks

Perfect everyday socks, after several wears they remain pulled up after a day at work. Super thin around the foot which is great, strong elastic. Compared to other premium sock brands, it's right up there with the best. I'll be buying more.

January 9, 2023

Warm and comfortable

Keep my feet warm and it's hard to get them stinky! They smell way less than most of my other socks. The only downside to these is that now I want to replace all of my socks with these, and these are pricer than most of my socks.

January 9, 2023

Best Ive Worn

I have worn Smartwool PHD for years, trying other brands along the way. After having really enjoyed the Patagonia Sender Boxer Briefs, I decided to give the socks a go. They regulate well and don't slip / shift. I wont go back, I own 6-7 pairs now and hope they don't change a thing!

January 7, 2023

Pretty to Look at But Developed Holes Fast

They feel good, they look good, the design seems good with some flex/stretch built in across the instep and side panels, but after about 6 trips through the wash, a large hole appeared on the side/bottom just below the ball of the foot. At this price, these are flimsy and unreliable. I get tired of Patagonia using customers to review costly product... Read Mores at their expense that do not perform. Poor value. Do not purchase.

Response from Patagonia
January 19, 2023

Thank you so much for writing this review, Scott! We also want to extend our sincere apologies for the hole that developed in your socks within such a short amount of time. Please feel free to start your [return]( at any time so we can help get you into a new pair!

January 6, 2023

my favorit sox in the whole world

On long treks in wilderness crossing streams and other water hazards these sox wick off the moisture and feel great. l use these when i go to work as well The very best soc. need to get multiple pairs so you dont run out.

January 2, 2023

Great socks, tend to pick up fuzz

Fantastic sock but love to pick up everything

January 2, 2023

Warm and not overly thick.

Excellent socks. Wore with insulated boots in very cold weather and worked well. Prefer these over very thick socks.

December 31, 2022

My favorite socks!

Warm, soft, always feels good when I put them on, favorites.

December 27, 2022

I love it !

These are high-quality socks. I'll buy it again, for sure!

December 25, 2022


These socks are super comfortable for being on your feet all day long. Being on my feet all day long at work or on a hike, these socks do the trick.

December 23, 2022

Great socks

Very nice wool socks, feel like high quality. They looked big when I first received them, but after washing they snugged up a bit and fit great.

December 23, 2022

Great fit and last. Wicks

Great fit and last. Wicks moisture well so my feet are not clammy when I am in the cold.

December 23, 2022

Great socks

I am the sommelier of socks. I have tried them all, and I expect a lot: cushioning, consistent sizing, snug fit with excellent wicking. These socks live up to the challenge. Just be careful in the wash, not too hot, and never brush them against Velcro.

December 13, 2022


I have several pairs of these socks and they feel great every time I put them on. The quality is impeccable as they continue to last through miles of backpacking, mountain biking and work. They are my go to socks.

December 12, 2022

Great product

Warm and stable. Feels like you can hike/run with them

December 8, 2022

These socks look great but

These socks look great but pilled up immediately. Covered in pills and its now hard to see the logo after one wear and wash.

Response from Patagonia
December 12, 2022

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Regan. This shouldn't be happening. A certain amount of pilling is normal with some fibers and usually washing on the gentle cycle can help prevent some of this pilling. Sweater shavers can remove much of the excess. If your socks are still pilling like this you can [return]( them through our website, or reach out to our Customer Service Team at (800) 638-6464 or via online chat for help.

December 5, 2022

Favorite sock

So I got 6 more to the already 2 I had. Live the sock and the design

December 5, 2022

Favorite Winter Sock

These are my favorite winter socks for alpine/ice climbing, winter hiking, and Nordic skiing. They have just enough cushion to give all day comfort with being too high volume, the right mix of warmth and wicking, and a tight fit that allows precise foot placement. They are not very thick which is fine because socks are not really there to add a ton... Read More of warmth. The crew height is just right for mountaineering and Nordic boots.

December 2, 2022

Good socks and durable, but

Good socks and durable, but need more interesting colors (and not white!)

November 18, 2022

Great for keeping my feet

Great for keeping my feet warm on cool days. The fit is very comfortable and they are very stylish

November 9, 2022

Did not last a season before wearing holes

Holes wore very quickly despite relatively light use. Did not last a season. Good looking, but not durable and not worth the price.

November 8, 2022

Super good

Comfortable, functional and easy to care for on and off the trail.

October 27, 2022

Comfortable, got me 6 weeks on the road

I bought these for a 6-week trip to 3 continents. They were comfortable and provided cushion. They could be washed and dried overnight in most hotel sinks if you wring them well in a towel. I brought 3 pairs, but one sock ended up getting a hole after 6 weeks.

Response from Patagonia
November 1, 2022

Hi Todd! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that one sock ended up developing a hole. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

October 25, 2022

Order one size up

Absolutely love these. I wear a size 11 shoe, and have several pairs of the L, but as they go through dryer they end up being a bit small. absolutely still usable, but small. The XL is perfect and I will be buying more of this terrific product.

October 16, 2022

Very comfortable

My first pair of merino wool socks but not my first pair of wool socks. Far more comfortable than I imagined and they performed wonderfully. I expect that as the weather becomes colder they will be a go to pair socks.

October 11, 2022

Have not put them through

Have not put them through the wringer yet, but do have a couple multi day hiking/mountain biking trips in these. Super breathable and they hold their shape really well (no sagging or loosening in the foot area) even when worn several days in a row. Will definitely be buying more when these wear out!

September 12, 2022

My go to boot sock

I cant wait to stock up on these. Great socks for work boots - stay soft and relatively cool for a long time.

September 7, 2022

Great for warm and cold

I hiked the entire route of Mt. Kilimanjaro with just these socks as my only foot layer. Worked great to wick sweat at lower elevations and keep my feet warm and the highest elevations. (Do keep in mind that I typically do not get cold feet very easily, but they do get cold)

September 7, 2022

Perfect Socks All Year

Ive had like 6 pairs of these- the pair Ive had the longest is going on 3 years, and while they dont fit as well as they once did, they are still great. These socks can get hot but your feet wont sweat and your shoes wont get damp. One downside is they will pick up lint in the dryer but can easily be removed. Fitz Roy logos for your feet.

September 4, 2022

I got soaking wet including

I got soaking wet including these socks. They dried out quickly. While wet I didn't get any blisters while backpacking 5+ miles.

August 29, 2022

Comfy socks

These socks are super soft and just the right thickness for everyday wear. After a few times through the laundry machine they are still super soft.

August 24, 2022

Great fit and warmth

These socks are a great fit without being bulky. Warm without being uncomfortable. Great for traveling.

August 19, 2022

No problem socks

Hiking, backpacking, trail running, around the house, no problems. They keep their shape, resist odor, and dry easily.

August 12, 2022

Very comfortable, care for gently

Great socks, just be sure to wash them by hand and avoid using heavy detergents.

July 28, 2022

Great Socks

Super comfortable. Wick moisture. Retain shape. Love them for everything.

I am happy with the comfort of the sock, but it snags so easy, hopefully it lasts long.

Great socks! Very durable. I've worn them for a while now and they show no signs of wear on the bottoms. They are very snug which I like for snowboarding. Highly recommend!

These socks are great! The price is alittle high for socks and they ripped when I used them very sparingly. Normally Patagonia products dont rip. Great socks nonetheless!

Oddly not as good as the ankles

I know it's supposed to be the same as the ankle socks of the same style but they don't seem to feel as plush, and nice as the ankles do. Seriously a huge difference in feel between the 2. I think this will be a one and done, interested in seeing how the sock holds up over time.

May 20, 2022

inconsistent sizing

great sock, soft, durable, everything I could want, BUT, the sizing between colors/styles is incredibly inconsistent. Of the 6 pairs I have (all size large) only 2 pairs I would consider large (I'm size 10.5 dress shoe)

Response from Patagonia

Thicker in places that wear faster like the toe and the heel, perfect size and comfort great everyday sock

I bought these to use on a 4 day hiking trip - they were the perfect sock to prevent blisters in my hiking boots.

Perfect Weight

These are my go to socks when wearing boots! I think they're the perfect weight and height. They provide enough cushioning in my boots without feeling bulky or too warm.

March 27, 2022

Great style, very small sizes

I wear an 8.5 shoe so I figured a large would be good. Even new it was a snug fit. The styles of all of the crew socks are great, colors are fantastic. My only recommendation to other customers is to size up. I bought some of the other colors in an XL and they finally dont feel so constricted. XL for an 8.5 foot seems a mismatch. And they shrink a ... Read Morelittle in the dryer on low. Patagonia should consider bumping them one size up.

ideal sock for winter sports

These keep my feet warm when ice skating or hiking in the cold, but are much softer than my other wool socks.

These socks are great for any activity. They are so comfortable I have multiple pairs!

Excellent design and fit.

These socks last for years and years and still feel like a part of my feet.

Most comfortable socks I have

These are the most comfortable socks I have. Will buy some more when I get back home to the U.S.

March 7, 2022

Amazing for Running

Hold shape extremely well! They are airy and cushioning, best running sock. The colors look great! Looking forward to more colors and patterns.

February 26, 2022

Great Socks

Perfect. I bought 2 more pairs of crews and 2 pairs of anklets. The fact that they are made in a hosiery in Mt. Airy, NC is the icing on the cake.

February 24, 2022


Great socks, warm but not bulky or too thick

February 12, 2022

Really nice socks

Enjoy wearing them a lot. My friend wore mine once and immediately got a pair. Only thing is if they were a little thicker that would be nice.

February 8, 2022

great socks!

durable and good warmth to weight. not excessively bulky allows me to use these in most conditions. keep them out of the dryer though... they will tend to shrink a bit...

February 8, 2022

outstanding warmth to weight/thickness ratio

Very warm, especially given the thin nature of these socks as compared to many heavier (non-Patagonia) pairs I have. I've already purchased additional pairs.

February 3, 2022

so comfortable. great fit!

it's super hard to find socks in a size small that i like. love these socks. they fit perfect, and they're super durable

These are wonderful I use them for the gym and at home or out and about I love them:)

Great Everyday Sock

I got a few pairs of these and I love them. I wear these to work and they are very comfortable. These socks are good and basic.

Nice sox

great socks

so soft and comfortable. fit true to size. love them.

January 5, 2022

Like Pajamas, & Perfect!

I have at least three pairs of these socks in a variety of colors, & I totally love them. They are perfect in hiking boots, chukkas, or running shoes. They keep my feet warm, & comfortable, with none of the awful itchy feelings. I will buy more of them once they are in stock.

January 5, 2022

Coolest socks ever period.

These have become my go to socks. Gym, hanging out at home, hiking, these go everywhere. More colors in XL please.

Need some more options in these. They are great.

Wish there were more color options. Quality merino wool socks are a hard find. I have several in the drawer that I look for when trail running or hiking in rough conditions. Makes all the difference.

December 24, 2021

Very comfortable

Just like all my other Patagonia products . It rocks

December 20, 2021

Excellent Quality

I bought these socks because I like wool. I really liked the quality of these socks- they were a little extra thick on the bottom which adds a little extra cushion to the feet. I wore these all day on my feet and I was very comfortable. I will definitely be buying another pair!

December 15, 2021

Sock stays in place and breaths great. Very comfortable with no annoying seams.

Your feet will love the feel of these sox

When you are on a one week treck on the John Muir trail your feet want these sox. Quick drying, soft and comfortable. I use these sox every time I I put me feet into shoes or boots. This is one of patagonia classic must have items.

December 4, 2021

comfy and dry (but tight calves)

I love the green ones I got literally changed my life and how I see socks. This entire time I've just been wearing socks that don't fit! The comfort around my feet and the warmth is incredible but my feet don't get sweaty at all. The fit is a little tight around my calves which baffles me because I'm not that muscular

November 29, 2021

Great for Hiking

Great socks for hiking in colder conditions. The anklet version seems to slip under my heel on occasion, but these stay where they are supposed to, even after washing (without drying). Highly recommend!

November 27, 2021

Style over substance

I'm truly disappointed in these socks. I wanted to treat myself and get well made socks that would last for years. So, I was OK with the higher price. Unfortunately, after ONE wear, the socks look terrible. Pilling like crazy. After only one wear, these socks look like old, crappy socks that need to be thrown out. What a freaking waste.

I've been on a long journey this year in search of the best light-medium cushion crew length socks for running. These are some of the best I've found.

Long lasting, effective, look great

This is my second pair of the socks. The first color was the classic fitz roy that I really loved but I love as much the feather grey. I have worn my first pair of socks to many hiking trips and they are as effective a year later than when I bought it. They are light weight but still provide great cushion.

November 12, 2021

Comfortable and great temperature regulation

Everything you could ask for. Just as comfortable in 100-degree summer as they are in the shoulder seasons. I havent worn them yet in the middle of winter.

November 2, 2021


I purchased these for my husband, he is pleased with the fit and weight, they fit perfectly with sneakers and with his casual every day shoes.

October 30, 2021

Warm but not sweaty feet warm

These are probably my favorite pair of socks, I usually wear other brands but the more I wear these the less I want to wear the others. They are perfect for keeping my feet warm in cooler areas. I have maybe ran 50 miles so far while wearing these socks and havent noticed any signs of deterioration or size change between washes.

October 27, 2021

Ordered more

Love them so much that i ordered more

Quality is superb and very well made socks. I wear 11.5 in sports shoes and L fits fine. Next time I will go with the XL. Soft and all day comfort

October 20, 2021

Decent hiking socks

I bought new socks to replace my years-old Patagonia ones (holes in the heels!). I'm size 9 and have a wide foot and the medium fits well. The fabric is super soft, though the first time I wore them, they slipped around inside my shoes; hopefully that will subside over time.

October 14, 2021

Best socks ever!!

Best socks Ive ever worn. The merino wool is super soft and doesnt smell while wearing them after long traveling days.

Too small and thin

In the past I had purchased the medium weight merino wool socks and they wore well and were heavier than this style was, also they fit better and didn't seem to be as small as this style is.

Perfect for Summer~Fall~Winter Transition

The lightweight merino wool socks are both thin enough for my light hiking shoes while warm enough for colder mornings and evenings without overheating my feet in the higher afternoon temp's of the High Rockies in late summer to fall transition.

These socks are worth the $$. Comfortable, warm and washable. Will last for years!

Very comfortable and keep my feet dry!

Extraordinary comfort! But also very good at keeping my feet dry! I work in cheap rubber boots and on my feet and walking a few miles a day. Was getting blisters and just uncomfortable feet after an hour or so in 90degree plus heat . I can even wear these a couple of times if I need to. Cause Im poor lol. Great work

So nice I bought them twice

When I finally bought Patagonia socks, I asked myself what took so long. And I loved the buffalo pattern so much that I bought a second pair for when the first pair runs its course (i.e., I lose one of them in the dryer).

Very comfy

Excellent pair of socks.

Breathable and perfect thickness

These socks are breathable and are the ideal thickness for casual wear and for wearing at work. For sizing, I wear a 12US in most shoes and the size large in these socks fits well. Good socks if you like light to moderate cushioning and a breathable feel. Would recommend!

Long lasting

Socks are used 3-4 days a week for casual wear, walking, hiking or whatever the days call for, hike up in Shenandoah National Park where I retired from after 38 years

Feels good

These socks feel so good on. No slipping and fit perfectly. I was worried that the wool content in them would make me itchy. They feel amazing!

Great lightweight performance socks

Very good cushioning on footpad and light material upper make this a perfect warm weather sock. I really appreciate the crew length when hiking through brush, and love the breathability on hot days. My go-to summer socks for any activity.

While comfy and warm, the wear and tear can be immediate

I got these socks right before I did a major hike on the High Sierra Trail in Sequioa NP across 5 days. On the trail, I used the socks about 2 times, switching out with other socks. The socks provide warmth and coverage, but seem to wear out rather quickly on the hike. I use Superfeet padding as well, so the wear underneath isnt so much the hiking ... Read Moreshoe. There is lots of pilling on the fabric and I had some toe aches, but fortunately no blisters. It is a difficult hike, but Im surprised that my minimal early usage really impacted the effectiveness of the socks.

Hey Eric, we're so sorry to hear that your socks began pilling so quickly. Though pilling can be inevitable with knit garments, as its the nature of those fibers, this does seem rapid for them to fall apart like this and could be a defect. We'd be happy to assist you with a warranty return, just [reach out]( so we can set that up for you.

Merino wool socks

Love the color, the fabric. Great fit. These are slightly chunky, so good for shoes that have a slightly roomy fit. Entirely happy with these socks! Also, glad you offer the choice of sizes- i ave a kind of small foot- 7.5- and frequently i can only get socks that are sized for 9-11.

Soft and cozy

These beautiful lightweight, soft , yet warm socks were so outstanding I ordered a like pair for my soul partner. The blue buffalo pattern makes me smile every time I wear them.

Awesome Socks

Bought a second pair on sale after purchasing the first pair I got 2 years ago. Great quality! Very durable while staying lean and comfortable. Keep it up!

Merino socks

I bought these to use with my fishing waders and used a sock liner under these. They kept my feet extremely warm and were very comfortable. The only issue is they shrink after washing them using the recommended method on the package. Fortunately, they do stretch. Overall, these are great socks.

Very soft

These socks are very soft and an excellent fit. I wear them for everything from mountaineering and mountain biking to work and dinner out!

Super Warm

I purchased this to keep my feet warm during camping. It kept my feet comfy and warm during rainy conditions.

August 20, 2021

Great fit

I wear a size 11.5 and the large socks fit perfect. They are very soft and comfortable after I put them through the wash. Great for colder weather!

Favorite socks

The only socks I will pay full price for. Great in cold weather- no cold toes, ever.

July 11, 2021

Wash before wearing

I've only had these socks for a few weeks. At first I thought I would need to return them, as they made my legs itch. After washing them, however, they don't make me itch anymore. I wear a size 12 or 13 shoe, and these fit just fine. Decent socks if they last the next year.

Long-lasting, comfy

My favorite running socks. I have wide feet and wear foot-shaped shoes, so I order up a size, but even so, many running socks dont have much stretch and feel like theyre squeezing my feet the whole time. These have plenty of stretch and seem to last forever. Ive had a half dozen for several years of regular wear and ordered more not because theyve ... Read Moreworn out, but I wanted longer ones to help prevent debris getting in during trail runs. Absolutely love them. Just wish I hadnt first wasted money on some other darn socks.

Light and Airy

These are great socks. They leave your feet feeling cool even in very hot weather. Super soft and comfortable. They machine wash well.

The perfect socks

I use them for everyday and also cycling.

Love these socks. Perfect fit and performance. One question, I own several pairs of light weight performance socks and the thickness of the socks seem to differentiate depending on when Ive purchased them. Is this by design?

Hey there, thanks for the review on our Lightweight Merino Performance Crew Socks, we're so glad to hear you're loving them! The thickness of the sock should not change if they're all lightweight, however, we do offer ultralightweight as well as heavyweight so perhaps that could be what you're describing. If you'd like to discuss this some more, feel free to reach out to our customer service team [here](

Favorite socks

I can't speak to durability because I've only had these for a few months, but they've held up very well so far! Probably the most comfortable socks I own. I like them a lot more than similar pairs of smartwool socks.

June 24, 2021

socks are life

I've tried all the wool socks out there. These are plush and as good as it gets. The weave keeps them in place and the style is on point. I enjoy my socks everyday.

June 11, 2021

Just perfect

These are a really nice mid weight wool sock. They breathe well and are mostly odor free even after a long day of walking. They are also more comfortable and more breathable than similar ones from SmartWool.

Developed holes quickly

I like the look and feel of these socks, but they very quickly developed multiple holes in the thinner parts of the dorsal foot. I tried getting them repaired by Patagonia, and they did a quick stitch job on a few of the holes and seemingly missed the others. I've also noticed these socks pick up lint like crazy, which is particularly noticeab... Read Morele on the white material.

Hi Joe, Sorry to hear that the Lightweight Merino Performance Socks haven't held up as they should have. We'd be happy to take those in as a warranty return under our Ironclad Guarantee. Feel free to begin that process here,

Premature ware

The bison socks have design issues that lead to unnecessary early wear in specific places. Though they feel great they are short lived. I have had other Patagonia socks that are still going after 10 years plus.

Very comfortable and nice and warm!

Merino wool socks area all I wear for field work and have used many brands and types over the years. These are the most comfortable socks I've ever worn. Highly recommend.

Comfortable but dont last

Great socks, but mine are busted after a year. The sides are worn out to the point they look like pantyhose. If youre gentle on your socks (if thats a thing), then these should be fine for you.
