45g (women’s S) www.smartwool.com
The thoughtful design of these run-specific socks puts cushioning, venting and durability just where it’s needed. They are also light in weight and supremely comfortable. Smartwool’s Indestructawool fabric combines 52% responsibly sourced merino wool for softness, sweat-wicking and odour-control; 45% nylon for toughness and a little elastane for stretch and fit. The PhD range runs from micro to full calf-length compression socks, so there’s something to suit every runner.
Verdict Designed for runners, with excellent comfort, looks and performance.
