There's lots of great features of these socks, but don't just take our word for it! See what these three thru-hikers have to say.
I really loved these socks and wore them the entire 2,200 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. They held up just as great as the other top hiking socks, AND they give back! How could you not love that?

I wore these while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and absolutely loved them. They held up really well, stood out from the crowd, and kept my feet nice and comfy multiple days in a row. I was also mainly tempted to keep them as my sleep socks because they were my favourite soft socks on trail.

I finished the Pacific Crest Trail in these socks and they were one of my favorite pieces of gear! All the other socks I had tried out always seemed to get hard and crusty after a few hundred miles but these socks stayed soft throughout the entire trail, even when trekking through constant rain and mid. These socks get my thru-hiker seal of approval!
