POPULAR MECHANICS | The Best Hiking Socks for Summer Treks
When it comes to hiking socks,we’ve got opinions. That a sock is durable, odor-resistant, and comfortable is non-negotiable. In the summertime, we take extra care to slip on a pair with excellent ventilation to keep our hikes from turning into sweaty slogs.
Choosing a no-show sock often means sacrificing shock-absorbing cushion, but that’s not the case with the Damascus. Farm to Feet uses the same targeted padding in this sock—at the ball, heel, and top of the foot—as it does in the Cascade Locks model, whichearned our Editors’ Choice award. We loved the top padding that prevented rubbing against the boot tongue. Like the other socks here, the Damascus has a seamless toe construction to reduce the chance of blisters and is built with durability in mind.
