WOW – these socks are great. Didn’t like that elastic around the arch the other smartwool socks I have owned. Bugged me. These don’t have it. Very thin and soft, but amazingly warm. You’ll like ’em. Men with regular size (9-11) need to get LARGE. Those of you with the really big feet need to get even larger. Men’s small would work OK for most regular size women. – JayHutch
My go-to socks for the office
2 people found this helpful.
My go-to socks for three seasons. I work in an office environment. These socks are the perfect weight for work and a great substitute for traditional poly/cotton dress socks. I go with the slightly heavier weight smartwools when it drops into the low 30s. Above 80 I switch to cotton dress socks as these will feel too warm at that point. The charcoal color goes with most anything and they look classy. I also like the brown. They last about two years with regular wear when rotating with several other pairs. I rarely wash them as I’ve found they last much longer. I just hang them in my closet from my shoe rack to air out for a day and they hardly ever have any odor (if they do I wash them). Best socks ever made!
Hard to get good info on SmartWool.
On the SmartWool website, this model (or the one most similar) is described as 68% Merino Wool, 30% Nylon, 2% Elastane. On Amazon, it’s 77% Merino Wool, 21% Nylon, 2% Elastane. Maybe I’m missing something? Whatever the composition of the socks that I received, they’re pretty good. They keep my feet warm in the sub-freezing temps, but not too warm for the office. I’ll probably be getting more of these… If only I knew what I was getting.
Good socks but wore out fast

I’ve bought several pairs of Smartwool socks in my area, but nobody carries dress socks. I bought these for work, and they are comfortable for work use. Exactly what I bought them for.
I love the color, he loves the fabric

Husband loves these. The wool is soft, wicks away sweat, and doesn’t smell. They’re stylish enough to wear with his dress shoes. I personally like the charcoal color a lot.
Well made, but (like others) still too thin.

These are well constructed socks, but they are pretty scratchy when you first put them on, as you would expect wool socks to be. When I bought them, I was experimenting with different socks. As the sock makers refuse to go above about $22 a pair in a brick and mortar store like Macys, they are just keeping the price but making the mostly synthetic socks that I like thinner. This makes for a bad wearing experience. These Smartwool socks are ok, but the best socks I have found this year are (I loathe to admit) Premiere by Gold Toe. While I have found most of Gold Toe’s products low quality over the years, this new set is the only only current synthetic offering that has any substance. Actually, had these Smartwools been a little thicker, I night have liked them better, but as it is, they are just barley thicker than your average sock today which is too thin. As an alternative to these I would probably go to Thor-Lo dress socks (which I bought at the same time.)
My Favorite Cold Weather Socks

Large-size sock fits as expected with size 9.5 men’s shoe (US size). Thin sock looks nice with dress shoes. Very warm on a cold day. I have more than one pair and I really like them.
