WARM AND TOASTY !I bought some similar style and specs, Magellan Outdoors Crew Merino Wool Expedition Socks with a blend of 70% merino wool, 29% stretch nylon, 2% spandex. I bought 3 pairs from in store at $5.99 a pair in Frisco, TX. Nester Hosiery makes them Magellan and others in Mt. Airy, NC who also makes specialized socks for miltary, police, etc. No matter SmartWool, Magellan, whomever, you cannot sacrifice the extreme warmth that Merino Wool in medium or heavy weight (I do not buy light weight socks) gives you I have found. I will always buy at least 70% or higher Merino Wool for my outdoor socks, or in home cozy time socks from now on. Acrylic and poly blend with wool socks are NOT as warm feeling. Cotton is the worst, since it retains moisture which causes feet to be cold AND causes blisters by keeping feet moist. I have been though 12 different brands of various blends and found that at least 70% Merino Wool or greater is the trick to keeping your feet very warm and blister free.
