  • “are these socks appropriate for hiking?”
    Asked by theresa from maryland on 7/27/2016 3:55:01 AM
    • Yes, if you like a light to med/lt sock. I have hiked with them and wear them to work all the time. My feet and calves feel good at the end of a day when I wear these. I am a person who doesn't layer their socks, and also my boots are hand made for my foot. They have a slight "compression" feel to them. May be the best sock I've ever had.

    • Agree completely with other answer, and the extra cushioning in heel and toe areas make these very comfortable for hiking. I wore them breaking in some new hiking boots and they were great.
