USA Made with 100% American ComponentsI am not going to be modest, we have made a few pretty impressive socks here at The Buffalo Wool Co. From our extra heavyweight Trekker bison/merino crew and boot, our ultra-light warm and wicking Pro-gear bison/silk socks, our All-Weather all-around best short sock, The B.O.S.S., we push the envelope to create well loved (and reviewed) gear. Our drive to create socks designed and engineered to be the best for warmth, wicking, durability, flexibility, and sheer overall comfort resulted in the American Field (AF) Bison Boot Socks.
Why AF Boot Socks Are So Awesome
Our American Field Boot Socks are our premier bison down socks. This calf high sock is great for almost any footwear from taller boots like hiking chukkas to tennis shoes. Created from ultra-soft bison fiber, these socks will keep your feet warm and dry all year long.
The American Field Boot Socks are warmer and more cushioning than our Pro-gear socks and thinner and lighter than our Advantage Trekker Socks. Designed to be the ultimate sock for regulating temperature, moisture wicking, the AFs are also incredibly supportive, light to wear, but just as tough as our Bison/Merino blends.
All About The Bison Down
The American Fields start with ultra-soft bison fiber. We monitor the fiber every step of the way from scouring and dehairing the fiber, to working directly with the spinning mill to determine the perfect amount of twist and loft in the yarn.
Once we have the perfect Bison yarn, we pair it with traditional fibers to ensure flexibility in all the right places and ultra comfort for all day wear.

Once you are ready to clean your gear, follow a few simple steps to care for your favorite socks, beanie, and gloves.How to Care for your favorite bison fiber gear
Here at The Buffalo Wool Co., our yarn bases for all our gear is (and will always be) natural fibers. This means that the internal structure of your socks (the parts that touch your skin) will be made from bison fiber, merino wool, mulberry silk, and other 100% natural fibers.
The overall composition (the parts that touch your skin plus everything else) will include other materials like nylon or polyester. This is done to make the sock more durable and ensure that your socks work (and play) as hard as you do.

Very comfortable and warm wish I had found them sooner
These socks are THE softest and warmest while maintaining a minimal thickness!!!!!!
It would have seemed unlikely that I would get excited about any pair of socks. LIKE some? sure, but EXCITED? Well, the American Field Bison Boot socks as well as the other Bison socks I've tried, are simply the best socks I've ever worn. PERIOD! It's reached the point where I try to wear almost no other kind of socks these days. Hard to imagine? Yup, it is, but true never the less. The warmth is delightful but not so warm as to lead to sweaty feet, and the amount of cushioning under the foot has made my daily walks a lot more pleasant. Thanks, guys, I'll be a customer for a long time.
These are definitely solid socks. Tested them against some similar Darn Tough socks, and they are lighter weight, softer, and slightly warmer. That's definitely a win, the real reason they aren't 5 stars is the price. I don't know if this specific sock is worth it compared to options like Darn Tough which are cheaper with a lifetime warranty. Definitely will keep buying more Buffalo Wool Company socks and products because I am looking for absolute perfomance out of my equipment right now, and am willing to overlook the price (I'm not saying they are overpriced, I understand it's necessary with the buffalo fibers).
My wife bought me a pair this past Christmas and I was very excited to try them out. Y'all, they have far exceeded my expectations. They are warm, stay up well, and wick sweat like none other! I've worn them about 4-5 times a week, hiking, running, and everyday out-and-about errands. They've held up phenomenally thus far, with slight pilling (that's to be expected), they look and feel like brand new! I will never go back to cotton socks after this blessing to my feet.
tl;dr The socks are excellent and your feet are worth the investment.
My feet are naturally cold and I’ve been searching for a sock that I can wear in my winter boots for shoveling that will keep my feet warm and dry and these did the trick. Delighted with these socks!
The socks have a tendency to roll down when I’m wearing them.
Other than that I love them.
I bought 4 pair of the American Field Bison Socks and gave 3 pair to my family for present s. We have been skiing several time and myself and my family are just amazed at the warmth of these socks. My family keeps telling me how much they love them and have never had any socks this amazing.. Thank so much. I learned of your company from friends of mine that you are doing business with. S&D Spinning in Millbury Ma.. They told me how amazing these socks are.. I’ll be buying more.. Thanks Again..
