I think the reason I've had cold toes is that my feet perspire, then the socks get wet and don't keep the feet warm anymore. The problem is compounded if I go back and forth between the cold outdoors and the warm indoors. With these socks it doesn't seem to matter. Even when they are damp from perspiration, my feet stay warm.
Another benefit is that I used to get dry, cracked skin around the heels, and have used various ointments to keep the skin from cracking. Since wearing heavy duty Smartwool socks, I haven't needed any ointments or creams and the skin is smooth and doesn't crack. I don't know why these socks have this effect, but it is quite nice. I would wear them for that reason alone.
I considered getting socks made with bison or yak wool because those wools are supposed to be warmer than sheep wool, but since wearing these socks I have stopped looking for warmer socks. They are a bit expensive for socks but not as expensive as bison or yak wool socks. It is worth the extra expense to have warm feet again! At first I bought 5 pairs, then I bought 3 more to have extras on hand in case there is an extended power failure and I can't use the washing machine to do laundry. Where I live that can happen, and there are no laundromats around. I also put a pair in my car's winter emergency kit. I never want to be without a clean pair of these great socks.
Purchased for tree stand hunting. Washed after first use and noticed significant pilling and a wear hole at my boot top. The wear hole was quite surprising given the limited amount of walking. There were no wash instructions on the socks or package. I contacted the supplier a few weeks ago but have not received a response. The socks were warm but I would expect better wear for a very expensive sock. Will not buy again.
You do, sometimes, get what you pay for. In this case, it's a solid bet.
Bought these as a gift for someone else and decided to get a pair for myself as well. My only regret is not getting a second pair...
