These are thick, extra-cushioned, comfortable socks. They perform much better than the Thorlos that we have been using. My husband ran with them on a 50K mountain race, and they kept goathead stickers, small rocks, and dirt out pretty well. I would recommend them. They are pricey, though. They wash well, too. I washed them in hot and dried them on hot; they shrank just a wee bit (and I knew they would, but that particular load needed to be washed on hot). They are great socks overall.

I'd also recommend: Merrell, Salomon

These are the most amazing socks I've ever owned. I never thought I'd say that about socks, but I will never buy a regular pair of socks again.

Wool socks are often thought of only as winterwear, but these are great for warm weather. All the stuff about moisture wicking and odor control are true. These also pill much less than normal cotton-blend socks, which is a big deal for my comfort. My foot is a 9½D, I got a large, and am happy. If you are in between or on the border of sizes, I think the general wisdom is to size up to prevent much circulation loss.

I'd also recommend: Kirkland

I have huge feet and always looking for socks that fit well and don't bind at the ankle. these are very decent but do run a bit small. Ultra comfortable smart wool was what I as after and for the price you would expect a great sock. This is not your 6 pack of cottons from the walmart. I stand on my feet all day long and these are my go to socks.

I bought these to go with my Keen Flint boots. Even with the added ventilation of the boots my feet were pretty warm. I have no doubt that my feet sweated, but I never felt it if they did.
