Cooler temps are here, and it's the perfect time to get outside! When you head out to hit the trails, don't forget one of the most important accessories - high quality hiking socks. The right pair of socks can prevent blisters, fight fatigue and odor, and promote good circulation, making them an essential component of your hiking gear. We have many styles and colors to choose from, both in store and online.

One of the most important things to look for in a hiking sock is proper fit. If you are between sizes, size down to avoid excess material that can bunch up and cause blisters. How socks should fit: look for a snug, but not overly tight fit. A sock fits properly when the heel cup lines up with the heel of your foot.
Whether you are a backpacker, hiker, camper, explorer, bicyclist or modern adventurer - from seasoned pros to newbies on the trail - having the right pair of socks will help you step up your game. So get outside, and get moving!
