    I used to be a manager at the now defunct (may they burn in whatever place failed retail chains go when they die) Sports Authority, and I started out as a part-time shoe sales associate, where I learned quite a bit about the whole thing, brand quality, and the difference between comfort and awful junk shoes that brands were selling for style over substance. I fell in love with almost every type of Thörlo socks. I have large feet (14.5) but can get away with wearing the Run-14s (I like the ankle-high 1/4 socks, and I love the no-show ones as well). I really love the Experias, because of the air-flow, but I've torn most of those because they're too thin for my big feet. The light hikers are awesome, too, and with Thörlo socks, I'm sure most of you know it's all about the pads. I always replace my insoles as well but not with the Sof-Soles we sold, but with some PowerStep® insoles I've found on Amazon, as well as another option available on Amazon, by Nazaroo®. Trust me, when it comes to your feet, money should not be an issue or you'll pay for it later.

    Nice durable 100% synthetic sock. I wanted a non-cotton sock to stay drier in hot weather, and my local store stopped carrying what I used to purchase. The Large fits my 11.5 (43) perfectly but I don't think they'd fit any larger foot as there's no length left over. I had my doubts about the price, but the synthetic content should make them last longer to get your money's worth. The only negative is that they weren't as thick as I thought a thick sock should be, compared to other fulls hiking socks I have such as SmartWool.

    I've worn Thorlo Light Hiking socks for years. I don't wear them every day, I use white cotton socks most of the time. If I'm going to do real hiking like up in the mountains then I use the heavier weight Thorlos. I use these Light Hiking Thorlos if I'm going to put on my work boots and do stuff out in the yard. Or if I'm going to be on my feet all day (but not hiking). Or during the winter if I want something a little warmer than regular white cotton socks. Don't be put off by the price, these socks will last for years so they're actually a very good value.

    These are my everyday socks. I use these mini crew with shorts and the Thorlo Men's Coolmax Lt Hiker Crew Sock, Walnut Heather, Large for long pants.These socks are the most comfortable I have ever found and last a long time. These are thicker than most other socks (hence the great comfort) so you should wear these when buying your shoes for best fit. They have Coolmax woven in, which are the white threads. This provides great moisture wicking and keep your feet dry and cool. I gave several pair to my son for Christmas and he says these are the first socks he's owned that keep his feet from sweating and developing odor. I've had some pairs that are over 10 years old now and look as good as my newer ones.

    I love these socks. They're amazing. I used them when I was traveling through different countries as they are good in many different types of weather and stay fresh longer than a regular pair of socks. Any moisture dries relatively quickly. They are extremely comfortable, well cushioned, and yet they breathe really well. I also love sleeping in them. For anyone concerned about durability, I have the first couple pairs that I bought more than three years ago and they are still in good/wearable condition.

    I've worn Thorlo socks for years, mostly for exercising and running so I can punish the Thorlo socks pretty hard and they have always held up and given me great value for the relatively high price. These low cut socks won't be taking as much punishment from me, just work projects around the house. They fit as expected, a little tight on my 11 1/2 size feet, but have stretched to fit just right.

    The only drawback is they're a bit thinner than I expected as compared to previous purchases of the same style. I wouldn't hike medium or long distances with or without any heavy pack weight but casual walking or short day hikes with a light pack would be fine.

    I have been looking for weeks for good fitting, comfortable, durable, and warm socks. I have tried numerous pairs but always found them too thin, too thick, not sturdy. These are literally the best socks I have ever owned. I have 6 pairs and 2 of them are like 5 years old and still going strong. Very good winter socks and the fit is exceptional. You will not be disappointed.

    I haven't purchased Thorlo socks in some years and the quality isn't what I remember. I purchased these socks for a recent vacation to Maine where we hiked/walked approximately 15 miles a day. During this trip and the first month or so these sock were great. I've had them for about 3 months now and they are starting to stretch and not return to their original size. Initially they fit like a well made leather driving glove but now it's more like an old pair of garden gloves. For the price I expected them to last more than a few months. According to my FitBit tracker I've walked 250+ miles on 4 pair of these socks; so about 60 miles per pair.
