      I bought 3 pairs of these running socks in 2009 and I'm still wearing them. I couldn't count the number of kilometres I've put them through. I've tried others brands but none are as comfortable and durable as these. Definitely worth the cost.

      I hate these. I have had over 15 pairs of the non "elite" phd run socks, and I have run in them for 15 mile runs for several years now with little problems with blisters. I felt these new Elite socks and immediately they felt like any other sock. They are only 51% wool, whereas the old ones were 69% wool. I was already appalled at spending so much on the old design but did it to keep my feet blister free. I'm sure these new ones cost less to make since they are skimping on the materials- there's no way I'd pay this much for these new Nylon feeling socks. Also, there is too much distinction in the socks at the heel and toe. It's significantly more padded in those areas, causing a more drastic seem where the padding stops. I only ran a few miles in them before I decided they were going back, but I'm positive they would cause blisters on a long run. Again it seems like they are skimping on materials by having way less padding underneath the arches of the foot.
      If you loved the phd run light cushion socks, be aware these are very different. In my opinion, they feel cheap and are not worth the cost!!!

      Ok for short runs, but not for long runs

      By

      Comments about SmartWool Women's PhD® Run Ultra Light Mesh Zones Micro Socks:

      These socks are very light and my feet don't get hot in them which makes them fine for shorter runs. However, the quality and thinness doesn't hold up for longer runs. I was planning on running a marathon in these socks, but after a 20 mile training run, my feet started hurting bad around mile 12 (I know it wasn't my shoes causing the pain) and when I took my shoes off after, there was a large hole in the big toe area. Very disappointing since these are expensive and I bought 2 pairs. In the garbage they went. :( I wish Smartwool had a medium cushion running sock because I do have a thicker pair that provides good cushion for long runs, but they are too thick. They cause my right foot to go numb since they take up more space in my shoes and my feet get hot in them.

      I wear them for working out and for every day use with sneakers. I love them and will continue buying them. I typically wear a size 7 shoe and have a size medium for the socks.

      Comments about SmartWool Women's PhD® Run Ultra Light Mesh Zones Micro Socks:

      I used to only use Smartwool socks for hiking. I bought my socks for running/walking in a multipack. Then my daughter gave me some SW running socks as a gift. I thought it was a bit extravagant (they are a lot more expensive per pair than the packs I usually bought), but enjoyed being indulged. When I found myself always reaching for them first as soon as they were clean, and being bummed when they weren't, I knew it was time to invest in some more. These were the latest add to my collection, and they didn't disappoint! So comfy, and always look great!

      I couldn't be happier with these socks. My first run in them was a 10 miler and my feet were comfortable the entire time.

      Comments about SmartWool Women's PhD® Run Ultra Light Mesh Zones Micro Socks:

      Women's PhD Run Light Elite Micro Socks are light enough for NC summer heat with ample cush in all the right places (ball of foot and heel). I wear size 9.5 running shoe and size L fits perfect. Love the fun colors! Smartwool is the best running sock ever...I won't wear anything else!

          Comments about SmartWool Women's PhD® Run Ultra Light Mesh Zones Micro Socks:

          Great socks. I've washed them about a dozen times and they've held up really well. I have had zero issues with bunching or slippage. I do think they run small. I wear a women's 6.5 and have always ordered smalls in my other Smartwool (non-running) socks, but these feel like I might develop a hole near my big toe because they're tight, same with my PhD no shows. If I were to order more, I'd go up a size.
