Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Socks

Smartwool has a huge variety of socks that they offer for almost any occasion. Their socks are made from the highest quality materials, so comfort and durability are not a concern. The Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Socks are a great option for hiking, or really for anything that require crew socks. Featuring Indestructawool technology, a patent-pending wool-based durability construction, these socks are ready for any adventure on your list.


Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Socks are made in USA with 58% merino wool, 39% nylon, and 3% elastane. Indestructawool technology is used by Smartwool to provide exceptional durability and comfort in these socks. The materials used are superb. They are soft on the inside and durable on the outside. They fit very snug against my feet and don’t stretch out inside my boots during use. These socks have an excellent amount of stretch and always return to their original form factor after being stretched.

Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Socks are extremely comfortable. I have always been very particular about seems in the toe of my socks. I have no problems with these socks because, as advertised, these socks have a seamless toe. Extra padding is added to the sock around the ball of the foot and the heel. This provides for extra comfort, while keeping the rest of the sock thin and breathable. This also provides a small passageway for air to flow under the arch.


I can gladly say that these socks really helped prevent sweat while wearing my Danner Boots. The problem for me while wearing boots is always trying to keep my feet from sweating. Once the sweating starts my socks get wet and my feet get cold. Wool socks generally help to prevent sweating and to wick away the sweat. Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Socks are a step up in breathability from any other wool socks I have owned. I noticed consistently with these socks that my feet would be completely dry when I take my boots off after hiking. I was very impressed with the breathability of these socks.


I highly recommend the Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Socks. Thanks to their design they are highly breathable while still providing optimal padding between my feet and my boots. Priced at $21.95, these socks are worth every penny. However, you don’t have to take my word for it because Smartwool offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
