We were the first to use
Merino wool in socks.
Over 25 years ago, we started making our Merino wool socks in order to spend more time outside—specifically, to keep toes from getting cold while skiing. And since then, we’ve been innovating sock technology, pushing the boundaries of Merino wool, and finding new ways to help you stay comfortable in the outdoors.
We’ve been incorporating innovations and sock technologies into everything we make from our PhD® Pro line to our casual socks to help support your every step on the trail, day in the office, epic sunrise summit, and perfect powder turn. We believe that, if your feet are comfortable, you can do more and experience more.
No matter what you need for your adventure, we have a sock designed for you.
