I tried different kind of socks and I didn't notice much change. Then I decided to go to the extreme and looked for thick merino wool socks. The result is complete comfort and finally, warm feet. I wear them both, to go out either with normal walking shoes or snow boots and at home with my slippers.
They run a bit tight. If your shoe size is close to the top of the size range of this product, I recommend you to buy the next size. Remember that if they are too tight, bad circulation might make your feet cold too.
Sizing - I wear an 11.5 shoe, so I ordered Large socks in accordance with the manufacturer sizing chart. They fit perfectly.
Comfort - they're like fleece gloves for your feet! I think maybe the folks that are complaining about the fit have maybe never had socks that hugged their feet like these do? If you're familiar with premium socks like Thor-lo and Smartwool, you know what I'm talking about. There are elastics that hug and support your arch and a defined heel cup that prevents these socks from shifting around in your boot.
I wear these socks with my Red Wings in warmer weather - they wick great and actually help keep your feet dry. For cooler weather, try the Darn Tough Merino Wool Boot Sock Full Cushion - it's a winner too!
Darn Tough vs. Smart Wool: After a winter's worth of wearing a pair of Smart Wool socks (with my Frye boots), the Smart Wool socks were worn thin on the heel and, to a lesser extent, the sole. I literally wore them out.
Darn Tough vs. Kirkland: I bough a pair of wool boot socks (Kirkland, which is Costco's store brand) and these held up very well over the course of a winter. They started to wear thin in the heel, but nothing drastic.
My Darn Tough socks have been 1/2 through a winter and still seem to be the same as they were when I got them. What really seems to put Darn Tough over the top (vs the Kirkland) is the 100% guarantee they give you. In addition, I have a pair of Darn Tough running socks that I wear everyday (and run 3.5 miles in, everyday) and they are like-new after over a year's use. I expect these Darn Tough socks to perform roughly the same.
Overall, I'd give Smart Wool (on a 10 point scale) a 5, the Kirkland a 8.5 and the Darn Tough a 9.
