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.

Best socks ever. Cushy and durable.
Thank you! We are happy to hear you think our Mountain Heritage No Show Wool Socks - Full Cushion, are the best!
At first I thought they may have been too thick, but they've held up well to sweaty days and the full cushion makes them very comfortable. I can usually reuse a pair after giving it a day to fully dry with no issues.
We are glad to hear that your enjoying your Minus33 Mountain Heritage Socks. Thank you for the great review!
The ankles don’t have the elasticity to keep them tight. I do a lot of erg row work, and they don’t stay up well. Usually have to stop and pull them back up out of my shoes every 1k or so. They’re great as long as you’re not doing a workout that really flexes the ankle. Great for running, great for lifting.
We are sorry to hear that the no show socks are not working for you. We would suggest the Mountain Heritage Full Cushion Ankle Socks. We would be happy to help you set up a return. If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.
Comfortable and just the right cushion for me for a variety of activities.
