Here's Smartwool's most minimal running sock, specifically designed for a woman's foot. Non-cushioned and at a micro height, this sock is perfect for mild weather and shorter distance road runs. Includes a padded Achilles tab for protection. Merino wool is commonly used in running, hiking, skiing, mountain climbing, cycling, and in other types of outdoor activities because of its excellent temperature regulating, antibacterial, and wicking properties. Merino is not the wool you are used to! It is one of the softest types available due to smaller scales and finer natural fibers for the ultimate comfort. Go farther, faster, and stay dryer in Smartwool!
