Features of our Technical Hiking Socks

Impact Cushioning & Ventilation Zones

Inspired by one of nature’s most durable structures, our honeycomb-shaped hexagonal reinforcement zones stand up to season after season of hard use. Targeted cushioning offers extra protection in the heel, ball, and top of the foot, while multiple ventilation channels facilitate effective air flow and fast drying.

Seamless Toe Closure

Advanced knitting techniques create a totally flat seam in the toe box, reducing bulk and eliminating friction. The result is a better, more comfortable fit that reduces blisters and other abrasion injuries, all without adding unnecessary volume.

Comfort Compression Using LYCRA® Fiber

Featured throughout the Farm To Feet line, our comfort compression technology now utilizes the industry-leading elastic LYCRA® Fiber for added support from the top of the sock through the arch. Comfort compression creates a precise, high-performance fit that minimizes foot fatigue throughout the day.
