Great socks, high quality product and looks very solid as well, BUT these are to thick to be summer socks. I'm wearing them with my Range Master Boots (non-waterproof version...which are super breathable), 10 hours shift, 27'C up to 33'C (was that day), and at the end of the shift (23:00h) my foot was sweaty. Also my boots became form roomy to a bit tighter for my foots. Usually I am wearing extra thin socks without any sweating issue. Can't imagine someone can run with so thick socks... Once again, the disclosure are very solid and great quality, but in my opinion the best period to wear them will be at the spring and autumn days. Thank you 5.11 for the high quality products.
I immediately wanted these socks because of the colors! They are a little thicker than I'm used to; not terribly thick, but I typically wear very thin socks. I don't like the feeling of my feet being stuffed into my shoes. However, I was still comfortable wearing these and walking for several hours. My feet also tend to sweat which is another reason I wear thin socks. These socks didn't make them hotter than normal and handled any sweat well. They came up just over my ankle and didn't slide down at all! Definitely recommend these socks!
I am used to wearing some of the top athletic brand of low cut socks. These feel great and offer comfort and support. The neat thing about these socks is the thick collar behind the ankle to not allow the sock to fall when running or your really active. Great socks
