Our friends up in Steamboat Springs, Colo., continue to update the popular Smartwool PhD sock. But this classic performance ski sock — even from last season — should be in your winter wardrobe.
The secret sauce in Smartwool’s footwear has as always been its higher grade of merino wool. And the PhD sock is no different. Better fibers mean a softer feel against sweaty, hardworking hoofs.
And the high-end wool from “happier sheep,” according to the brand’s animal-welfare certification, also adds stretch and durability that feet need to turn in deep pow.
That’s just part of the reason Smartwool PhD socks are typically priced in the $20 range.
Get your hands on these winter sports socks by Smartwool while they’re over 40 percent off. Right now there are more sizes available in the PhDs in certain weights, so search here to see what works for you.
