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.

My feet are cold almost year round. These are the best perfect fitting warm socks I have ever purchased. So glad I was introduced to minus33 company by Wildkind Academy.
Thank you for the review! We're glad to hear that our socks are finally warming your feet up!
These socks are great under boots or shoes, and keep my feet toasty. I have some lipedema, so my calves and legs are big and most socks will cut off my circulation. These are long enough to get to a natural place just at the knee. I will have to take care they don't get into the dryer and shrink, which would be sad for me. Love these also for a trip we are taking to a rainy climate.
Thank you for your review of the Mountain Heritage Over the Calf Wool Socks - Full Cushion. We're glad to hear that they work well for you and keep your feet warm and comfortable. We hope you have a great trip!
These are the best everyday sock I’ve worn. They wear like heavier socks both warmth and comfort but not bulky. I have a drawer full of other brand wool socks that need to be made into sock monkeys! Thanks for a great product!
Thanks for the great review! We're glad you're enjoying the new Mountain Heritage Over the Calf Wool Socks - Full Cushion.
Best socks ever. Slowly replacing everything else with these. They work well as compression socks too.
Thank you for choosing Minus33 and for leaving us such a great review on the Mountain Heritage Full Cushion Over The Calf Wool Socks. I am also in the middle replacing all of my socks with merino wool! Thanks again for taking the time to leave us a review.
I have tried SO many wool socks over the years, and these are my favorite. They go right up to the knee and they don't fall down at all. They're warm and cozy, and I love that they are made in the USA. My whole family are going to be getting these for the holidays this year.
Yes, our Mountain Heritage Over the Calf Wool Socks are very warm and cozy. We are so happy to hear these socks are your favorite! Socks are a great gift.
Thank you for the great review!
