Just curious what everyone wears for socks. Currently have wear darn tough extra cushion
Darn Tough are what I wear most days but when it comes to hunting I really like Merino socks made by Swandri here in NZ. The Alaska sock that the LRH shop sells look good.
Any sock that’s at least 70-75% Merino.
Kenetrek and Kuiu with hunting boots.
Been wearing Balega with athletic shoes. Pretty impressed with them. Plan to see if they make a boot sock
I wear the Darn Tough but the do get hard and compressed (crusty) after the first day.
Darn Tough full cushion boot socks. I haven't had the compression issue with them, but switch them out every day. I let one pair dry each day if the hunt/weather permits while wearing the other. Even on day hunts I always have 2 pairs of socks.
I like the kentreks. The local store stopped stocking the Alaska heavy but I get a pro deal on darn tough so can’t complain.
any wool knit that I own outer
Darn tough full cushion steely socks. Made for steel toe boots but perfect in my hikers
I were scheels brand merino wool socks I really like them.
If hunting, you are normally walking/hiking a lot. I recommend a thin liner sock, silk or a synthetic material really helps with any blister / hot spot issues. Cabelas sells a nice one.
Darn Tough and Kuiu both in merino
Darn Tough are good socks. I wear mostly Thorlo socks when I can get them. Made in USA and very durable.
Kenetrek and SmartWool, really like the liners from SmartWool.
