I read lots of reviews about how warm these socks are. I live in the low desert near Phoenix, AZ where summer temperatures range from a comfortable 100 degrees to a bit toasty 120 degrees. Pavement temperature can easily hit 140. I wear net topped shoes (New Balance 1540) to get maximum ventilation in an office casual environment. We usually get a couple frosts a year if it is a hard winter. So, warm is not what I was looking for.

Still, I hear lots of survivalists insist on having wool socks available during bad situations. I wanted some wool for a Get Home bag and my Bug Out bag. So, I tried these thick crew length socks for daily wear in the Sonoran Desert.

I am impressed wool allows nice ventilation. Maybe because of evaporative cooling, these socks are no warmer than the Thorlos socks I have been wearing. They are thick enough to feel cushioned. I also wear Under Armor Heat Gear shirts that are best air dried. Wash and air drying wool socks won't be a problem. Only surprise is the black socks are more light gray. The picture is accurate.

My wife feels empowered to throw out my clothes when she decides they are too old. My socks have been slowly disappearing. Looks like I will be converting my sock drawer to these wool socks.

People Socks replied within hours to my prepurchase questions. Shipping was fast. Thanks for a nice first purchase experience.

Second order -

I'm a value conscious buyer. Quality and durability are more important than lowest price. Cheap stuff usually costs lots more than quality stuff, especially when you have to throw out the cheap stuff you bought and buy the quality stuff anyway. But, it is nice to find quality durable wool socks that are inexpensive too. Worth my hard earned dollars.

I've been buying high end wool socks at close to $20 a pair for the last five years and after buying these socks my life has been changed! The same quality as the $20 per pair but for four pairs! Great deal, great quick shipment and who doesn't love to help a start up? My first four pairs (one order) was so great that I'm ordering a bunch more for the family for christmas (and myself!).

The price & the comfort = awesome.
I had several pairs shipped to me in Afghanistan, and I couldn't be happier.
Every Service Members knows how crappy the basic standard issue boot sock is... get these!

Thick, warm, and comfy socks. Exactly what I needed for my first real winter in 11 years (California spoiled me).

I wear US size 9.5 and these are a great fit. Thick and comfortable. Wool is way better than cotton especially for hiking or being on your feet all day. Just got back from Yosemite where I used these socks exclusively and had almost no blisters hiking the Yosemite Falls trail and Half Dome.

Great price, less than the gold toe I replaced. Very thick and cushiony. I will wear nothing but merino wool socks.

Great socks. I spent a couple of years looking for a replacement for my old Filson Grey socks. (Filson had a perfect product, and then they got cute, and improved them so much, they are unwearable.) These fit the bill in every way. They are U.S. made (Thank you!) and are super warm and comfortable. I ordered four pairs to give them a try, and after more than a year of tough love, they are still in great shape. I just ordered an additional 8 pairs to round out my sock drawer. Summer or Winter, these socks keep my feet warm and dry. If they came in over-the-calf, I would buy a dozen more pairs.

First of all, let me just say that these are some very nice socks for the price. SmartWool socks are a little bit nicer but are so expensive I just can't justify buying them. These People Socks are comfy, warm, thick, soft, and great at keeping feet dry and sweat-free.

I only have one slight annoyance. I opted to buy the mixed variety pack which is a few dollars more expensive because I didn't want to just have 4 pairs of the exact same sock. When they came I thought that there was a mistake and they accidentally sent me 4 identical socks when in reality the brown, navy blue, and heather black socks all look pretty much the same.

Just buy the heather black 4-pack. They go with any shoe and the socks are great. Don't spend more for variety.

I have no major complaints about these socks. They are great quality, super thick, very soft, and you really can't beat $25 for 4 pairs of wool socks.

However, I feel the description is a bit inaccurate in saying that these socks fit women's shoe size 7.5+. I wear a women's size 9.5/10, and felt confident that these would fit well, but they don't! There is about an inch or more of extra room left in the sock, and I can feel the material bunch up when I try to put boots on over the sock.

I am not returning the purchase, but I really feel like these socks are better fitted for a man's foot.
