Gone are the days of disappointment upon receiving a pair of socks as a gift. Serious outdoorsy types of all speeds know that good socks are the secret to comfort when active, and can even make or break your entire trip. Perhaps no company knows this as well as Wigwam Mills, having been in the business of knitting their signature Wigwam wool socks since 1905.

Over the course of those 114 years, sock technology has advanced just as much as the company has, but the care, quality and detail has stayed the same. Our team checked out Wigwam at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Snow Show, and saw socks with a smart mix of classic comfort and high-efficiency performance that could keep any adventurer going on long trails and at their cozy campsite.

Wigwam Wool Socks Offer High-Performance and Elevated Comfort

Our teach checked out the Arbor NXT line, one of the latest offerings of Wigwam wool socks. The series has performances-ready features including lightweight nylon, a breathable mesh instep, and the patented INgenius® NXT lining that allows for moisture to move from inside the sock to the outside where it can evaporate quickly.

Beyond being trail-ready, these socks retain warmth with a merino wool exterior and a reinforced heel and toe. That same reinforcement also acts as blister prevention, which is crucial for all outdoorsy types. These socks are available in retail outdoor stores and online in Crew ($17) Mid-Crew ($16) and Quarter ($15) fits. Buy Now: $15-$17
