I've given them 3 stars because they are really a light-weight hiking sock, as compared to my medium-weight REI brand Merino socks and heavy weight socks from the Smartwool people that the manufacturer's description compares them to. So at $10 a pair, they are not a special value.
Update: Ran out of these socks when I was too busy to wash them. (I wash them separately on cold and hang them out to dry.) Wore a pair of thick cotton yesterday (yuck)... then today a wool and polyester. When I took my shoes off at the end of the day my feet smelled; the first time since I bought these socks. That could be just because of the great construction and Merino wool... or it could be the anti-microbial feature. Either way they are terrific socks.
There is very little difference between blue and black; they are pretty much grey. The black socks have HIKER GX written across the toes in red, which is cool if you one of the many individuals who doesn't like clammy sandal soles and is wearing socks with your Birkenstocks.
The wool content of these socks is 100% Merino wool. The socks also contain 25% polyester and elastic. I ordered a half dozen more pair. One pair seems to have shrunk; I sent them to The Great Canadian Sock Co. Inc. for a free replacement.
The socks look and feel very well-made. It's very soft, not too thick and not too thin either. And I like the color, it's dark olive.
But the sizes listed here are a little misleading. I found these socks by narrowing down my search results to men's socks, so I assumed the sizes listed are for men. They are however women's sizes. The actual sizes are in the first photo I uploaded here.
I'm a man and wear shoes size 8.5-9, so I bought these socks at size M. Look at the second photo to see how small it is for my feet. I should've bought size L, so now I'll be returning these.
If they fixed the listing, it would've easily been 5 stars from me.
A service notation: I ordered a 3 pair package that was supposed to contain 3 different colors (these 'tan" ones, a bluish color and I think the other was charcoal) ...I ended up with 3 pair's of these tan ones, but I just kept them instead of sending them back. I bought them for a summer long trip to Alaska, and just didn't have the time to wait for the turn around time of shipping them back and awaiting the new ones.

Great quality socks at a good value. I forget when I bought these but I've worn them plenty since then (at least a year ago, maybe more) and they're still good as new, no holes. Read morePublished 16 hours ago by D in Oakland
These socks are great and a very good value. I used them on a 3-day trek where we were walking every day for 6 to 7 miles and these socks worked great!Published 1 month ago by Brinman
