A great day of hiking starts with a great sock. Constructed to withstand the rigors of hiking and trail running, this sock has a legendary performance fit with solid cushioning along the bottom of the foot. Through-hikers logging hundreds of miles on the Appalachian Trail have long sung our 1/4 socks praises. No slipping, no bunching, no blisters. Fine gauge Merino Wool makes this a fast drying and breathable “all weather” sock that stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And since Merino Wool is naturally antimicrobial this sock repels bacteria and odor. Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life.
