I've owned other Smartwool socks that were much better than these. This wool shrunk and got out of shape with the first wash. The socks were short to begin with, and are even shorter now. This wool is a bit scratchy feeling too. I would not buy these again; not pleased with them.

Well, I will admit I haven't worn these socks yet because it's stil summer, but, I bought them early. My cotton socks were not warm enough for me in the winter and I decided to go with something warmer. The quality looks great and I know they will not be itchy. I am looking forward to using them in the coming months. Yes, I would recommend this product.

Brands I'd also recommend: FitFlops...they are fabulous!

Best wool dress socks EVER. I wear them almost everyday. Look good with pumps or more casual shoes. Keep my feet nice & toasty all day. I wash in cold or warm water & dry on low. No significant shrinkage (they look smaller after washing, but stretch back to original size.)

I bought these for a trip to Africa during their Fall season. Temps will be in the 40's at night and warming up to the 70's during the day. The Tour Co. recommended wool socks and I cringed at the thought of itchy feet. These are wonderful. No itching, good temp. control as I tried them during an extremely mild winter in NC where we were having 70 degree temps. No sweating at all. Could not ask for more. Good color as well. The grayish/brownish color will blend with everything I am taking.

The best looking, most comfortable socks I've ever owned. I wear them most of the time especially in winter. I am sort of between sizes but I order the next size up and the fit is wonderful. Highly recommend.

Love these socks! Soft, comfortable, warm, and thin enough to wear with dress flats. Also, they stay up and don't sag, even after many washings. I love smart wool socks; and Zappos is the best place to buy them.

Smartwool socks are just "the best!" I especially love these because they are thin, yet they're super warm. My feet feel dry and comfortable no matter the weather or the shoes I am wearing. I have trouble with swelling in my lower legs, so most sock bands are too tight. These are far less so than any others I have found.

I don't much like wool, but I really like these socks! I started wearing Smartwool socks only in the last 6 months or so (mostly for walking and running) and find that I really like them. They live up to all the hype of temperature control and zero chaffing, are easy care (wash and dry), and hold up well so are worth the cost. These are the first pair of non-athletic socks that I have tried - they're comfortable and look nice.

I love Smartwool socks, but the quality on this model is a bit below their usual standard. I've had a pair of their cable dress socks for years that I love and finally ordered more. I got 3 3-packs in 3 colors. They are not made the same way as my old pair. Out of the 9 pairs, 2 got holes in the soles almost immediately. It seems like a flaw in the knitting where the heel transitioned to the sole? Still love the ones that didn't fail. Disappointing from a normally awesome manufacturer.

Too thin; too scratchy. Very disappointed. Will keep washing them to see if eventually they won't be so scratchy.

The reviews that I read before purchasing these socks were all pretty superlative, so this review will be out of sync. One sock was frayed at the top of the elastic, they felt a little harsh, not like a wool sock, and they have no compression area around the instep, so the fit is a little sloppy. They are very expensive, and to me they seemed mediocre. I am returning them.

I love these Smartwool socks! For some strange reason, I've always had feet that easily blister. Tender foot skin, I guess! I wear these socks year-round. They're so soft and they stay so dry and sweat-free that they seem to really minimize the blisters. My feet are comfortable all day. They're very warm in the winter, and surprisingly comfortable and dry in the summer. The colors are great! I have them in black, heather brown, chestnut, and gray. I can make those four colors work with every pair of slacks and shoes I own. I find these socks to be the real deal -- they're a very high-quality product, in my opinion.

Smartwool socks are terrific - These socks stay up, but they are not binding. After washing, they still look and feel new. They work in all weather -- not too bulky. These are now the only socks I wear. For travelers, these are great airplane socks -- keep your feet warm, but do not leave the sock rings from swelling.

Great all purpose socks! I ordered the midnight heather color which is really so practical and a much nicer color in person. They keep your feet warm and are thin enough to wear with loafers or dress shoes. Smartwool products are truly the best! Warm in the winter, cool in the summer and most important not itchy (I am sensitive to wool).

I like these wool socks for walking. I got them in black and white. They provide a little cushioning, and don't bunch up.

Love these socks! They are wonderfully warm and comfortable. It was so cold this winter I needed extra warmth & these have been great. They are great quality and will take me though many winters. I love them so much I'm giving a pair to my daughter.

I purchased these socks for my daughter who requested these specific socks because she has several pair and loves them. They wash and dry without shrinking or fading. I have also worn this style and like them for the above reasons but prefer wool socks that are knee high so for me this style is too short.

I have always loved my thick Smartwool hiking socks that I wear with my lightweight hiking boots, but wanted a thinner dress sock to wear for warmth with my everyday shoes. I ordered the cable style 3 pack in navy blue and these are perfect!

Excellent quality and comfort. They are not itchy. They stay dry all day and seem cleaner than cotton socks. I am switching out all of my cotton socks to this brand this winter.

First purchase of Smartwool socks about 3 months ago. No problems whatsoever with these cables. Have bought several other styles and love them all. SUGGESTION TO ZAPPOS: Since you only sell 3 pks, please offer a little more variety in the packaging. 3 pr of oatmeal cables is a tad boring.

Fabulous sock. Smartwool makes the best socks on the market and these are no exception. They stay snug around the arch and keep my feet warm but not hot, and they're pretty too! The ONLY problem, if you can even call it that, is that I could feel the cables on the bottom of my feet, which was a bit of a distraction. Not anywhere near enough of a distraction for me to send them back, but people who want a perfectly smooth covering around the entire footbed should know. For me, a full day wearing them with clogs and jeans wasn't a problem at all. Love these socks!

This Smartwool is a great casual sock. Goes with anything, is comfortable, absorbent, and wears well. But caution and follow their sizing - one size does not fit all.
