Hiking is one of the most fun outdoor activities, enjoyed by people of all ages. Hiking can be a challenge depending on the location or weather. Hiking gear can make a big difference, as using the wrong gear can ruin the fun or bring about big trouble. Wet socks are a hiker's worst enemy, especially in cold or freezing temperatures. Moisture pulls heat away from the skin 23 times faster than air and can reduce skin temperature so rapidly that wet feet feel painfully cold. Wet skin makes the feet much more susceptible not only to frostbite, but also to blisters. Drymax Hiking Socks have a special Dual Layer Moisture Removal System. This system instantly moves moisture from the skin, through the inner Drymax layer to the outer absorbent layer, keeping feet dry. Staying dry is critical to remaining warm, comfortable and safe in cold weather. Drymax is the least thermally conductive fiber. This means Drymax fibers keep feet warmer because they draw less heat away from the skin. The Hiking Sock is a High Density protective padded sock. Using dense padding, as opposed to thick padding, it protects feet without adversely affecting the fit of the shoes. The Hiking Socks were designed for use in cold to mild conditions, keeping feet dry, comfortable and odor free all day long.

I just bought a trial batch of Mediums. To my hand they feel a little lighter and stretchier. They also fit correctly, without tightness or shortness in the toes, even though the sizing chart says they should be miles too small. Go figure.
Bottom line, I think, is that guys with normal size feet should probably start their testing with Mediums, but you should expect to try a couple of sizes and wait for a couple of washings before ordering in quantity.
