Treat Your Feet

The Best Hiking Socks Available Are on Sale

Socks don’t have the same appeal as technical daypacks or down jackets — they’re boring. They aren’t something we get excited to buy. Like all outdoor gear, technical socks — this means zoned cushioning, improved durability and merino wool — serve a purpose. They prevent blisters, frostbite and trench foot. In a word, they’re vital.

But they can be expensive, which can often lead to outdoorsmen skimping on high-quality socks — there’s a big difference between a $25 pair and the kind that come in packs of 12. Luckily, Backcountry is hosting a massive sale on all types of technical socks for running, skiing and more, and it includes some of the best hiking socks available.

Merino Wool Cushion Boot Sock by Darn Tough $24 $19
