The J.B. Fields "Hiker GX" Low-cut is a 1/4 length version of our popular Merino Wool Hiking Socks. Due to it's low length it looks great with shorts and is perfect for outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking, and running. If you just buy one sock this year make it the Super Wool Hiker GX you won't be disappointed!

I'm impressed with what appears to be very good quality workmanship and they are OH SO COMFY as soon as you put them on. I've been wearing them daily from outside in the cold and all day at work where it's way too warm. Due to the natural ability of wool to thermoregulate, my feet have been super comfy (and don't smell).
I'm happy I bought these and have no regrets about buying so many, I'll be wearing them all day everyday for the most part. Time will tell how well they hold up but I see no reason to suspect the durability will be anything less than excellent. I'll be sure to update if I see anything worth adding but for now these are very highly recommended!!!
I bought a 3 pack of the quarter socks in Taupe and those are great for my ankle height boots. They extend about three inches above my ankle. They end right about at the top of my heavy over-the-ankle boots.
I also bought a 3 pack of the crew length socks in Olive. Those are great for use with my heavy over-the-ankle hiking boots. They extend up to mid-calf on me, a 6'0" tall guy. They seem to stay up well and they are very comfortable on my 17" circumference calf muscles where some socks have been uncomfortably tight.
The quarter socks would look fine with high top sneakers and shorts. The crew socks would look fine with jeans or casual wear and a pair of shoes or boots.
I've tossed all my cotton and synthetic socks and replaced them with some form of wool for the moment. I want to see how wool handles sweat and wear as well as stink in day to day life.
Edit 3/21/2017: I was happy enough with my initial order of these low cut wool socks that I went back and ordered a second set of three in the olive green color and I ordered a set of three of the crew length in taupe. These will be my hiking socks for spring / summer / fall. I plan to use them daily also to see how wool is in warm weather.
I did this experiment twice with the same results. The first time it was the weekend, I wore a pair of these wool socks (without the foot spray) all day. Very, very, very slight smell, feet felt great. I let them air dry and I wore them the next day (again , no foot spray) and at the end of the day my feet felt great with very, very slight smell. (yup, one less very) I repeated this experiment going to work 2 days with the same results. When I say "slight smell", I mean put your nose in them, not sniff from 6 inches away.
Now, I wash my socks after every use but I read online that wool socks can be air dried. So I thought I'd test it. Very happy with these socks. Highly recommended for cotton sock people with smelly feet.
