Developed in collaboration with celebrated mountaineer Conrad Anker, the 14”-high Smartwool Men’s PhD Outdoor Mountaineer sock delivers warmth, cushioning, and support at less weight than a traditional alpine sock.
The sock uses Smartwool’s Indestructawool technology to deliver comfort and durability. Two types of elastic grant stretch and enable the sock to recover and remain securely in place. High-density cushioning in the heel and toe offer impact protection while mesh panels enhance moisture management and breathability. The sock even has a 20-30mmHg graduated compression rating that aids in recovery after you’re done adventuring!
Sold in pairs and available in your choice of size and color, the Smartwool Men’s PhD Outdoor Mountaineer sock has full contents of 50% Merino wool, 43% nylon, and 7% elastane.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great socks
Likes: Super comfortable. Just enough compression for support and fatigue reduction. They dont feel tight or restricting at all once they are on your feet.
Dislikes: Lighter design so probably not that warm.
