I wear Merino wool socks everyday, and they are supremely comfortable. They wick well, and as you noted, don't seem to retain odor like most fabric.
Mine aren't long enough to prevent my boots
from being in contact with bare skin, which is icky when it's hot. Also most socks can sag while you are wearing them, which these over the calf socks don't.
