The new Smartwool Women’s PhD Outdoor Approach Socks are the latest evolution in the brand’s partnership with alpinist Conrad Anker. They’re made to perform. Featuring seamless toe construction to prevent blisters, mesh venting to help keep your feet cool, imported wool yarn, and new indestructawool technology (I’m especially excited about that), and a women-specific fit, they are ideal for hiking, biking, and daily wear. I love them for travel because you can wash them in a hotel sink and they dry overnight.

They come in Crew and Mini versions. The crews are working great right now and the minis will be perfect for summer. Cushy soles are what got me hooked on Smartwool years ago. They put cushion in all the right places to keep your feet comfortable. I haven’t worn them long enough to see if the Indestructawool makes them last a long time, but if it does, that is a game changer for Smartwool that will make me want more. *Disclosure: Affiliate links below.
