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.

Very nice socks until I washed them. The XL was a loose fit on my size 11 feet, which is what I wanted. They shrank to size M and are now very tight.
