Kodiak: The Excellent Winter Sock
"If it is below 40 degrees, you wanna start thinkin' about wearin' the Kodiak. If it gets below 30 degrees... you definitely want to get the Kodiak on your feet."
Host to some of the harshest maritime conditions you'll find anywhere, Kodiak Island in Alaska is a practical habitat for the U.S. Navy's cold-weather survival training grounds. With full-density padding from top to toe and an extra-heavyweight, 100% US-made merino wool knit, the Kodiak tactical boot sock is built to protect those venturing into the coldest winter environments. Traditional outer plaiting construction positions most of the wool fibers next to skin for optimized insulation and effective moisture wicking.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "My son just graduated and joined the Iron Workers Union Apprenticeship program and LOVEs theses socks. He says they keep his feets warm and dry. He wants more socks!"

U.S. Merino Wool
Merino wool is soft, itch-free, naturally odor- and bacteria-resistant, cool in the summer and warm in winter. We source our 100% U.S. grown merino wool exclusively from sheep raised by American farmers on American farms.
Outer Nylon Plaiting
A more traditional sock construction technique that produces classic linear patterns and heather textures, outer nylon plaiting knits the stretch yarns in the outer layers of the sock and the body yarn on the inside. Reinforcing yarns woven into the stretch shell increase durability, while wool fibers sit closer to the skin for maximum insulation.
Top-to-Toe Cushion Zone
Top-to-Toe cushioning increases comfort in heavy, high-volume footwear like hiking and winter boots. Cushioning loop knit along the instep and up the shaft of the sock adds insulation while protecting the foot from stiff boot tongues and uppers.
Full-density cushioning features a terry knit loop on every interior stitch, providing better insulation, exceptional wicking, and increased protection against impact. Its faster moisture absorption keeps the skin dry and reduces friction, while its shock-absorbing nature enhances the performance of multi-sport and outdoor socks.
Seamless Toe Closure
Advanced knitting techniques create a totally flat connection in the toe box, reducing bulk and eliminating blister-generating friction.
Circumferential compression from the top of the sock through the arch creates a precise, comfortable fit that helps support the foot throughout the day.
Reinforced construction and low-stress seam placement reduce wear and tear, increasing the life of the sock.
