I hike and walk through the winter around Maine and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Usually I can use these socks in temperatures down to 0 degrees alone and I have used them to hike over to help someone out in -20 degrees with heat packs in the socks.
The most extreme conditions I have encountered was during a hike during the winter months through the White Mountains with temps near 5 degrees. The hike started out with a clear blue sky but a heavy snow shower moved in very quickly. Due to white out conditions I lost my way a bit and my walk ended up being about 5 hours longer than I intended. People were getting ready to search for me, and I can't tell you how surprised everyone was when I came walking through the door with no frozen digits. We laugh about this experience now, but it could have ended with a ride to the hospital with frostbite.
Amazing, socks. I need socks that perform in the worst conditions and these fit the bill.
These socks are expensive but they last years if cared for properly. Wash them in cold water and hang them to dry. Do not place them in the dryer or they will shrink. Since you're hanging to dry, it will take a couple of days to dry in the winter. If you suffer from cold feet (like I do) these socks will be super appreciated on cold winter days. They have extra plush cushioning and reach mid-calf. They are a little thick for regular shoes but perfect for boots. If you like thinner socks, definately check out the PhD smartwool socks. Since these socks excellently engineered, they wick away moisture so you will never feel sweaty and they are not itchy at all (which is what most people fear when they hear "wool").
I've worn them in winter boots, rainboots, and sneakers. Sometimes I even wear them in warmer weather. I love these socks and will continue to enjoy them every season. Also, these make a great gift!
