Smartwool Women’s Hiking Ultra Light Crew

MSRP: $16.95

Smartwool socks simply are the best. They last a long time, fit well and happen to be super cute. Reinforced soles provide cushiony comfort.


Smartwool PhD Ultra Light Micro Sock

MSRP: $14.95

This sock blends a high-performance fit with ultra-light cushioning to keep you comfortable no matter the activity level. A padded Achilles tab offers additional protection for longer hikes.


Wigwam Sub Zero Sock

MSRP: $13

Heavyweight and fully cushioned, these make for a great boot sock and were favorites of ours in 2012. They proved thick enough for most temperatures and were ideal for wading in September and October.


Wigwam Outlast Weather Shield Socks

MSRP: $13.99

Merino wool softness helped make these some of the first socks into the bag for any trip, while the Outlast fiber helped balance foot temperature, meaning we didn’t get too hot. A good sock for longer hikes.

Icebreaker Women’s Hike Lite Crew

MSRP: $19

The medium-cushioned soles are comfortable, and these socks will keep you warm in wading boots, Xtratufs or winter boots.
