Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Cozy and soft I bought the lightweight version to wear with rain boots while tromping around southeast Alaska in September (temps in the 60's), but they've also been fine for hiking in Northern Arizona in winter (temps in the 50's). I was pleased to find that they stay soft and aren't itchy at all. Work well with ankle-high hiking boots, but also stayed up under my knee-high rain boots. The only reason I've deducted one star is because they do tend to pill after washing, and with them already having a heathered look, the pilling makes them look old pretty quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sazzia from Amaaaazing I've been cheap when it comes to footwear in the past, but consistent high-intensity exercise has caused a bit of foot trauma, and now I am more selective. I received a double-pack of these for Christmas (we hike and snowshoe) and after wearing them on a 6.5 mile hike in 40-degree weather last weekend, I had no blisters, my feet felt just as cushioned when I got home as they did when I left, and my feet remained WARM. These are like luxury bathrobes for your poor, tired feet. Highly recommend for anyone with sensitive tootsies that do high-mileage treks, you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pollywoggiedoggie from Crests socks are great I bought the Cresta mid weight hiking socks on sale to try them out, and love them. They are comfortable, winter or summer. They wash very well, don't shrink much, if at all. I walk 6 miles a day with some decent hills, and the Cresta socks are the only ones I'll wear now for my walks. After the tryout, I bought more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marvi40 from versatile hiking socks Excellent, versatile socks, perfect for moderate winters in the mid-weight. Merino wool and nylon combo best for comfort, warmth and durability. Appreciate that LL Bean was patient with me until we found the right sock. Also appreciate LL Bean has a women's sock--don't have to put up with too wide toes in the Unisex sizing. My only complaint: they were initially out of stock (happens too often these days) and I had to wait a couple of months. Shoppers note: top band fits snugly on a woman with a slim build.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NWPaOutdoors from Cresta Hiking Socks I ordered Mediums as they are to fit women's shoe sizes 6-10. While very soft and warm, they are a little big for my size 6 1/2 feet. If they fit better I'd give them 5 stars. I would recommend them to someone with bigger feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1994 from great socks I like these just as well as my Smartwool socks. As my Smartwool socks need replacing I will purchase more of these. I have both the higher and lower cut and they are both great socks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kdlhansen from faulty seams I used to like these socks, the newest pairs I have bought are not holding up well. Where the heel joins the foot has developed holes on several new pairs. They don't make them like they used to, so I won't be buying these again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dskRN from Cresta midweight socks I have learned that merino is the best fabric for socks and the Cresta socks offered by LLBean are just awesome. They last years and years, are reasonably priced, and can be machine washed and dried. I recently replaced a couple pair that were starting to lose the elasticity and slipped down in my farm boots. They were at least ten years old! No holes or worn spots. I'd like to see them offered in a charcoal color.
