Technical Info

PhD Sock Updates

  1. NEW SOCK WELT - Uses wider elastic at the sock opening to help keep the sock up without cutting into the leg.
  2. NEW ELASTIC ARCH - Increased power of the elastic around the foot arch area enables a more locked-in fit.
  3. NEW SOCK MESH - New open mesh pattern on top of the foot helps increase blood flow to keep toes warm.

The performance enhancing benefits of Merino wool helps regulate your body's core temperature reducing lactic acid build-up and helps stabilize your heart rate.

4 Degree Elite Fit System

The new 4-Degree Elite Fit means that your foot gets extra-special attention in your ankle, arch, and all along your instep.


Indestructawool™ technology features a patent-pending construction method for exceptional durability and comfort

Merino Wool Benefits

Smartwool combines the function of wool's natural strong suits with their one-of-a-kind knitting technology to give you:

  • Temperature control, so you're warm when it's cold and cool when it's warm.
  • No Stink, because Smartwool's Merino wool keeps your feet dry and is inhospitable to bacteria.
  • Easy care, which means that you can machine wash and dry.
  • Ultimate breathability.
