Product Info

The Smartwool PhD Ski Ultra Light Socks provide you with the comfort and reliability of lightweight merino wool for warmer days, or those who don't want cushioning to get between them and their edging.

Do your feet a favor and throw on a pair of Smartwool Ultra Light ski socks.

I use them for ski socks. They are thin like a pair of dress socks, but still keep me warm. They are better suited for the warmer days on the slopes (>20°) unless you have a really warm pair of boots. They are thin and offer no padded areas but are good for an experienced skier. Not sure about the durability yet because I've only wore them about four times; however, I believe they'll hold up well.

Word to the wise: Be cautious washing and drying wool clothing as it will shrink considerably. Wash in cold then let it air dry.

These socks are not as bad to shrink because they are not 100% wool, but I still wash cold/air dry.

      Comments about Smartwool PhD Ski Ultra Light Socks:

      These are great socks if you like yours on the thin side (which I absolutely love).

      As they are wool they breathe really well, can survive a few days skiing and are incredibly durable.

      In terms of tradeoff, if/when it gets really cold you are going to feel it - for me though this is more than acceptable as I am not a fan of thick socks as they scrunch and cause me terrible pain.

      Enjoy!

        I bought these socks for winter running, and they are perfect- not too thick, but wicks away sweat and keeps feet warm (even running in the snow-laden roads of Boston!) I will definitely be buying more pairs.

          Comments about Smartwool PhD Ski Ultra Light Socks:

          I bought these socks for skiing. I wanted a thin sock for my high performance boots. I actually use these as my everyday sock as well. They're warm in the winter and wick away moisture in the summer. Really helps keep foot odor to a minimum. I'm very impressed with their durability given how thin they are and the frequency in which I use.
