Now that the warmer weather is here in Rochester, many of us will put away our wool socks until the fall and cooler weather returns. No longer does this have to happen! Merino wool is an incredible material that can be used all year long. It’s efficiency at wicking and managing moisture away from your foot has benefits for hot, cold, and all weather in between.
My hands-down favorite pair of socks are the PhD Ultralight Run socks from SmartWool. It has the cooling effect of wool that works together with specially placed ventilation zones to keep everything inside my shoe healthy. They are virtually seamless from the heel to the toe and has added durability in places where socks get worn down first. All of these features makes these the best pair of socks that I own.
