Smartwool went all out on the SW170 Run Light Elite Mini sock. Elite Cushioning means that the sock is padded only where runners need it most: the strike zones under the heel and toe. The rest of the sock is lightweight, and fit-focused.

This particular style, the SW170, has mesh zones that address moisture and temperature regulation for Men, specifically. The Light Elite Running sock keeps your foot cool and dry while maintaining a snug fit, preventing blisters and sheering. Mini Crew height offers a perfect blend of protection and style. As with all Smartwool socks, the SW170 PhD Run Light Elite Mini sock is itch-free, washer and dryer safe.
