Details

Softer than cashmere and warmer than wool, bison down is the key to making these socks warm enough for winter hiking but comfortable enough to wear to work. The American bison was hunted nearly to extinction in the 19th century. Today herds thrive in the Great Plains, where the fiber for our American Bison Socks is gathered.

"Lovely and soft but too thick"

Perfect for a cold winter evening but too thick to get into a regular pair of shoes. They are beautifully knitted and the yarn is soft and lovely.

"American Bison Socks"

These socks are thick and warm. However, they slip down into my shoes and bunch up at the toes. For the price they are not worth the purchase.

"exceptional quality"

Very cosy and comfortable. While excellent under hiking boots and the like, are too thick to wear under everyday shoes of any other type.

"American Bison Socks"

These American Bison socks are very well made and extremely comfortable. They keep your feet warm without making them sweat. I will buy another pair of them next year in a different color--definitely worth the price!!!!

"Great product,,,a little spendy...more in my future!!!"

Even though these are the most expensive sox I've ever purchased (initial purchase of 1-pair, upon receipt and initial wear, purchased 2 more pair...I'd do it again when I need more. They are very comfortable, extremely warm. Haven't had them all that long, but they look like they'll hold up/wear well.

"Have two pairs, need a third!"

I love my bison socks--they keep me warm in the winter while hanging in the house or hiking. In the Spring, I was surprised at how cool and comfortable my feet remained. Their mission is something that I love, too. Would certainly recommend the socks!

"Warmest Socks in Existence"

I bought two pairs of these socks for my son to wear during the cold Iowa winter. He says that even in below-zero temperatures his feet stay warm when worn underneath his water- and snow-proof boots. Excellent product.

"Very disappointed"

I was given two pair of these for Christmas (2016) By the end of January, three of the socks already had holes. I didn't wear them everyday since i only got two pair. I loved them, they are very warm and comfortable just cant believe they wore as quickly as they did. Very disappointed in that. Also i have sent Nat Geo two emails and a tweet with no response at all.

"Worth the price"

Yes, these were the most expensive socks I've ever purchased for my husband (or anyone!), but they were intriguing and received good reviews. My husband loves them, and so far hasn't poked a hole in the toes, as is his tendency! He likes to wear them so much, he doesn't like to wait until I do laundry to get them back.

"Best socks for cold weather"

I purchased a pair for my husband, who often works outside in Labrador where it can be very cold in winter. We've tried many different socks to keep his feet warm but these are the best. He loves them and is planning to buy two more pairs! Highly recommend.

"warmest sock I've ever owned"

I've never owned a better pair of socks that keep my feet warm. They are my favorite during the cold weather. The socks are quite thick and difficult to wear with some of my shoes but I don't care since I tend to wear them around the house and to bed. I own 3 pairs!

"Excellent socks! 5 stars!"

My son and I do a lot of fishing in cold weather, and these socks are the best we've found at keeping our feet warm in our waders. They are soft, warm, very comfortable, and very well made. I was most impressed with the quality and workmanship. I will buy them again.

"only one pair"

Truly a warm and soft pair of socks. However, I expected 2 pairs of socks to arrive based on the product picture. Hopefully the one pair lasts twice as long to justify the price.

I purchased these socks as a Christmas gift for my son. He is a boatwright and often works outdoors in the cold. The socks are heavy, soft, and warm. Perfect. In addition, they are packaged nicely so make a nice gift.
