***Manufacturer's Website: www.smartwool.com
EDIT: this is not working for me. It needs to go here
SmartWool also added in an arch brace to their design, which both provides support to the arches, as well as helps to hold the sock in place

***SmartWool also takes pride in their socks ability to manage moisture as well as odor-control. The SmartWool socks actually absorb moisture while it is still in the form of a vapor rather than an actual liquid. The vapor is then transferred through the SmartWool and then evaporates as it reaches the outside of the sock. This is also the reason for SmartWool's success in controlling odor. Since the moisture is not allowed to form a liquid, bacteria is not able to successfully grow, which results in less odor.

***since then I have put approximately 140 miles on my boots, and I have worn these socks while doing so for all except about thirty of those miles. However, I have probably put at least those missed thirty miles on the socks while wearing them with some of my other shoes.
EDIT: need the metric conversions

*** After the first two or three washings I realized this and have since began turning the socks inside out while washing.
***2. They are not to thick to wear with a wide range of footwear.
***5. They stay up on my leg.
