I’ve been wearing Swiftwick’s Pursuit Zero sock all summer, and my feet couldn’t be happier.

This thin but durable merino wool sock does an excellent job of wicking and breathing. My feet never overheat. The Swiftwick Pursuit Zero sock also fits perfectly and feels comfortable thanks to the non-seam across the toes, the ribbed area on top of the sock that holds the sock in place, and the well-formed heel cup. The socks don’t rub or itch, and they stay in place all day long.

I like the inch-wide woven band (the “double welt compression cuff”) at the top of the sock that just covers my ankle. It’s snug enough to help keep debris out of my socks but never feels tight despite the fact that it’s a compression sock.

The Swiftwick Pursuit Zero is a thin sock with thin cushioning on the bottom. Stretchy areas under the compression cuff help keep the sock in place. Thanks to the merino wool, I can wear the socks for several days before I feel they need washing. They just don’t smell.

Sizes: S-XL. Colors: Heather grey.

Materials: Merino Wool 65%, Nylon 26%, Spandex 9%. Made in U.S.A.

Bottom Line: I love this thin, lightly cushioned ankle sock for daily wear and for exercising.
