The standard for ski socks.

Comments about SmartWool PHD Ultra Light Ski Sock Men's, Black, M:

I spend 250+ days a year in ski boots. These are what I use, and I've owned 8/10 pairs of them. I tried different brands, and different socks from smartwool. If your boot fits you well, the thin sock feels great. They have extra material in the toe/heel. The toes eventually wear holes though.. I would say any given pair will last me 300+ days.

Comments about SmartWool PHD Ultra Light Ski Sock Men's, Black, M:

I bought these for more general use. I hate it when socks sag and these have never done that! I especially like that they are warm enough to wear outside in the winter, but not too warm for the office.

BEST SOCKS THAT I HAVE EVER WORN!!!!

Comments about SmartWool PHD Ultra Light Ski Sock Men's, Black, M:

By far the best socks that I have ever bought. My doctor told me to buy these to replace the compression socks that I wear because I was having a hard time putting on the compression socks. They work just as well as the compession socks that are difficult to put on.I love them.

My 2nd pair, much better than thicker socks

Pros

  • Light

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Skiing
    • Snowboarding

    Comments about SmartWool PHD Ultra Light Ski Sock Men's, Black, M:

    I have 4 smartwool ski/snowboarding socks, my last 2 are the "PhD Ski ultra light" and they are much better IMHO.

    The ticker ones somehow twists or something beneath my toes so it's not a good feel, for this reason I'll be only using these ultra light version.

    They were warm enough, but haven't tested on very cold temperatures.

      • Hard Boots - Ski / Board

      Comments about SmartWool PHD Ultra Light Ski Sock Men's, Black, M:

      Been skiing & boarding for 45 years... hard boots for both. Properly-fitted boots + WARM, ultra-light socks = commanding control of whatever you're sliding on. Comfort, fit, support, warmth & durability... if they were any better, they'd cook me breakfast in the morning.

      Comments about SmartWool PHD Ultra Light Ski Sock Men's, Black, M:

      The one ski sock I would push to customers while working retail. There are the rare few who (need) want a thicker sock but this one is just fine with warmth and the more important; moisture management. Pro boot fitters will always assume you wear a sock like this so why not? Also this sock is a good height and not overkill "over the calf" so you can wear it for other activities and not feel ridiculous.

      These are the *ONLY* ski socks I own

      By 

      from Mountains

      Comments about SmartWool PHD Ultra Light Ski Sock Men's, Black, M:

      I'm a ski patroller and a racer parent. My boots are race fit ski boots (Lange) with Intuition custom molded liners. There is zero extra room in my boots for socks. If I go to a slightly thicker sock, it cuts off circulation to my feet and my feet get cold or go to sleep. These are the lightest socks I could find that provide wicking and warmth. I wear them in any conditions down to -30F and for 8 hours at a time. They hold up, they do yeoman's work in wicking and they are comfortable. Also important is that there is a lot of consistency in manufacturing from pair to pair. I can buy a pair now and a pair a year from now, and they'll both be identical and fit identically.

      Great product - I'm happy to recommend these.

      Surprisingly warm and a great fit!

      By 

      from San Angelo, TX

      Comments about SmartWool PHD Ultra Light Ski Sock Men's, Black, M:

      Loved the fact that these socks kept my feet warm and dry without the usual drawbacks of using a thin lightweight sock! I usually have problems with cold feet and bad fitting boots due to having to wear too thick of socks to keep my feet warm. These solved both problems right off the bat! The only thing I would warm you about is that these are very thin so there are some places in your boot liner/sole you might have to make adjustments with. For me I had to switch to a sole that held my heel more in place since these socks had tons less bulkiness in the heel than the typical padded socks.
