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.
