I'll wear a size 11.5 shoe normally and that means that the up to 12 size fits tightly or not at all with some socks. These XL's fit well, as I expected, pretty much perfectly. I'll guess that they'd stretch to size 13 if you're careful not to shrink them. The other sizing problem I have is up the calf and these aren't bad or good. In other words, diabetics should skip these, but they don't choke my calves as bad as some have.
I'm cautious with all of my socks and underwear like this and use generic Woolite and the shortest delicate cycle cold and hang them to dry. Besides avoiding shrinkage, they will last much longer, so it's worth the extra time to do it right.
The olive heather color is nice and doesn't even appear green, more like charcoal and grey, unless mine were packaged incorrectly.
Nice socks and recommended, if they will fit as well as mine do.
The first time I wore them, I wanted to give them a good audition so I wore them all day without taking off my boots until bed time. I laid the socks out to breath over night like I would hiking and wore them all day a second day. The next morning (a Monday) I was afraid to wear them to work just in case there was odor. Lo and behold, I woke up and smelled them and they actually smelt close to fresh so I wore them, including to my Monday night bowling league. At that point, I considered it a successful test and just felt gross trying to push it any further.
I washed them in the sink in cold water and Woolite and laid them out to dry overnight. They took a full day to dry out (24+ hours) but I didn't give them a twist just a firm squeeze.
Reasonable price for the quality
Wool for warmth, including when damp from rain or sweat when hiking
Comfortable no-itch (some wool socks do get me)
Long wearable cycle for extended trips (alternating socks, I could bring 2 or 3 pairs for an extended 1 week camping trip without being afraid of the stench when I pulled my boots off at night)
Multi-purpose (hiking, winter warmth, general purpose)
You have to be willing to pay "premium" sock prices (but it's worth it)
It'll become an addiction, and you'll probably want to 5-pair
How will these hold up after a full season of hiking and washing?
How late into spring will they be comfortable with the Las Vegas heat?
If you've read this far and are considering some of these, buy them.
If you're like me, you'll also be happy to know that there is no part of the sock that pushes against the toes! This is hard for me to describe as I'm not certain exactly what this would be called, maybe the seam? Sometimes, manufacturers put seams on the ends of socks or too close to the top, and that causes them to rub and annoy my toes. I'm usually quite cognizant of this, and these have my A+ stamp of approval.
I haven't really gotten these wet (I live in a desert), so I'm not entirely sure how they would work if you were hiking or something and these got wet. I use these as a regular daily sock instead of dedicated for hiking along.
They wash fairly easily. I am a little concerned about longevity of these socks. I land on my heels, apparently, and heels seem to dissipate on my socks like there is no tomorrow. I have noticed a little bit of, what I would call, consolidation or compaction (which leads to thinning) on the bottom of the sock. I assume this is anticipated for wool socks, and wool socks are probably (generally) not the daily driver for most people. They're definitely worth it so far. If they die too soon, I'll update my review with further information.
The socks themselves seem well constructed, but only time will tell if they really hold up. The main issue I've had with other merino wool socks is durability, but so far so good.
