I wore these socks on a 18-day backpacking trip!!! They stood the test of stinky feet and silty soil with gusto. After multiple trips these socks only show wear on the inner heel, a common issue for how I wear my socks but these held up much longer than other socks in my rotation! I have made multiple purchases from Mountain Standard and every time I make sure to add a new pair of socks to my cart!!! I have started to wear them for ski season this year and find they are the perfect weight for keeping my toes warm and not too bunched up with sock.
This is my first pair of merino wool socks. I was a bit hesitant because wool has never been very comfortable to me. But these socks are amazing. Not only are they super comfy and warm (I commute by bicycle in the wintertime) but they actually stay up on my calves. It's hard to come by in socks for me these days. I wear a size 8.5 in men's shoes and I ordered the S/M Dusty Olive ones. 10/10 Would recommend!
Thinner than my last pair from Mountain Standard, but happy about that . Not super tight . Not saying lose . Room for my toes to move . They stay up look good feel good . Good on cold and warm days .
