I can't believe how great these socks are! My feet usually get cold quickly and they were freezing during my fitness walk on the first sub 40 degree day this fall. I first went looking for running shoes lined with Thinsulate. I couldn't find any but people kept mentioning Smartwool socks. I have several pair that I wear with clogs but had never considered them for my daily run/walk. They are so much better than cotton! My feet didn't just not get cold. They actually felt warmer than before I left the house. Totally worth the price!

Save your money. Unless you have very small feet and no cankles. I was excited about the look and supposed large sizing option of these Smartwools. I bought the 3-pack (and I rue the day). Why Zappos does not offer single pairs, I do not know. What I do know is I paid a lot for socks that only survived a try-on. I then washed them as I would with any new garment, and they no longer fit my size 11 feet. Thankfully, I was able to give them away to a friend with 9½ sized feet and thin ankles. They were a big waste of money. I will not purchase this brand for myself again.
