After I wake up and blindly stick my hand into my sock drawer, I know it is going to be a good day if I pull out a pair of my Smartwool Wading Socks. The PhD Pro Wader socks are designed with the angler in mind. Some of our favorite fish to target happen to live in the coldest of rivers, and thanks to Smartwool’s Pro Wader socks, you can now kiss cold feet good bye! Made in the USA out of breathable merino wool, they are built with extra cushioning in the foot and ankle to provide relief from the pressure of your wading boots. While methodically adding extra cushioning in certain spots, they removed unnecessary cushioning at the meeting point of your foot and ankle to increase joint movement. The socks can be pulled up high so you’ll never have to worry about them sliding down or your base layer riding up when putting on your waders. These are the warmest socks I have ever worn but thanks to the added mesh channels and nature of quality merino wool, the socks remain breathable if you happen to be wading on a warm spring day. Hands down, the only sock that has ever made me excited to put on. Want to share this joy? Holiday season is upon us and this is an affordable yet practical gift for the outdoorsman in your life.
