A SOCK OVERHAUL
We got our sock machines set up in May of 2019, and hit the ground running. We knew our customers wanted a sock for every occasion, with heights and cushion levels for all activities. By combining our historic textile knowledge, and using what we learned after redesigning our classic sock styles, we were able to envision a brand new sock collection that could truly meet your needs.
We dialed in our yarn selection, using a combination of merino/nylon as the main body of the socks. These yarns deliver a high merino wool content, with the extra durability of nylon.
HIGH WOOL CONTENT
We have packed in huge quantities of wool next to your skin, using the synthetics only as needed to improve fit and durability.
Stretch nylon yarns are light enough to keep the merino content high while giving shape and fit to the sock. Lightweight plating also adds durability to high wear zones on the heel and toe.
Full Length: Comes all the way up to the knee
Boot: Almost to mid-calf, this style is designed to be slightly above the standard 10 in boot height
Crew: Comes up to the bottom of the calf, the most common sock height
Mini Crew: Adds a little more ankle protection, covering the entire ankle
Ankle: Covers just above the ankle bone
No Show: Designed to sit just below the ankle bone, at or below a standard sneaker height.
We offer 4 sock weights for 4-season adventures. Each weight is based on a combination of: the amount/type of terrying (the lofty loops on the inside of the sock), the construction/types of yarns used throughout the sock, and the thickness of the individual yarns.
Our Micro Weight socks are our lightest socks for a minimal feel. Within our Micro line, we have 3 cushioning options: Liner, Light Cushion, and Full Cushion.
Our Lightweight socks offer full terry insulation throughout the entire sock, yet are still light and slim-fitting thanks to 90/10 yarn technology.
Our Midweight socks are made using thicker yarns, and thicker terrying. Midweight socks have full terry insulation throughout the entire sock.
Our Expedition socks are our warmest socks. They use thicker yarns and have much denser cushioning throughout the whole sock.
MICRO SOCK CUSHIONING
Our Liner socks are our thinnest socks. They are useful as a base layer under another sock, or if you simply like a minimal feel. The only cushioned zone is in the Toe Bumper, to protect against damage and pressure from the toenails.
Socks with Light Cushion only have cushioning in the heel and toe, to help provide comfort and protection on the highest wear zones of the sock. The rest of the sock has no cushioning to maintain a thin feel and fit.
Full Cushion socks have cushioning along the entire footbed, adding extra comfort in your shoe. The footbed cushioning works great to wick moisture away and keep your feet feeling cool and dry.

I like the fact that they stay UP and they are very warm and comfy! My favorite socks by far!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We're glad you like them and that they stay UP! They are great socks!
So happy with my new socks.
We are pleased to hear how happy you are, with our Mountain Heritage Over the Calf Wool Socks! Thank you for the great review.
Well made, comfortable and warm. If they are durable over the season will buy again.
Thank you for the wonderful review!
Best socks ever owned. The cushioning doesn't restrict the foot and the stitching is intangible. I wear the over-calf style and work as a chef, and even on hot/humid days my feet are more dry and cool than in your average sock.
We are happy to hear that your Minus33 Mountain Heritage Over The Calf Wool Socks are the 'best socks you have ever owned.' We strive for high quality and function in all of our products here at Minus33. Thank you, for supporting the Mountain Heritage collection that is made right here in Ashland, New Hampshire.
I used to spend a lot of money on "toe warmers" , they are about a dollar per package. My investment in these awesome socks will pay for themselves in less than 1 winter season.
I also appreciate the ability to buy a product made in the USA!
We are glad to hear that you are staying 'warm and comfortable' while wearing your Minus33 Mountain Heritage Socks. Thank you for the wonderful review!
