      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!!!

      I have bought a few of these socks lately. Absolutely love them! Great for everyday use, working out, running, and just relaxing! Was told I would never go back to other socks I wear, and believe that statement is very true! Well worth the money.

      Super comfortable, kept my feet warm but not too hot. Wore them on a early morning bike ride to the beach. It was in the 40's, and the socks were perfect. Also for a early morning hike in Pasadena, with temps in the mid 40's and I didn't have any cold feet. They were comfy in both cases.

          These are the perfect socks for sleeping in during the winter as they're not too think but they're very warm.

          Ok for short runs, but not for long runs

          By 

          from Minnesota

          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.
