You've asked for them, we made them, our new warmer climate short ankle socks, the "Best Overall Short Sock".
This sock has a great foot fit design with integrated arch support, terry loop cushioning through the footbed, flat toe seam, breathing toe box, ultra re-inforced on the heel and ball of the foot. It is insulating, soft and durable, wicking moisture away like nothing you’ve ever experienced. They are a little heavier and more cushioning than you would expect but truly maintain your body temp without trapping excess heat.
Designed for a dry cool comfort in hot environments, with superior moisture regain properties, and exceptional air-flow almost double the wicking of fine wool. (keeps your feet dry and sweat free)
Exceptionally durable for outdoor activities, long distance running, hold up strong for eighteen holes, or just knocking around town in your sneakers. These socks are incredibly easy to care for and due to their antimicrobial properties, feel free to wear them a few times before washing. But when they do need to be cleaned, simply machine wash on the warm or cool setting, then toss them in the dryer.

Socks should fit as well as any of your other garments. The heel should sit on your heel and not under it as in a sock too small, nor half way up your Achilles as in a sock that’s too large. Socks should be flush against your foot with no extra material sagging. The toe seam should lay flat across the top of the toes.
Sock Heel at Your Heel
The sock heel should sit on your heel, not under it or above it.
Flat Toe Seam
The toe seam should lie flat along the top of your toes, not above or below.
Taut Across the Foot
Socks should be taut across your foot with no sagging material.

I’ve always had the motto if my feet are cold, I’m cold. Wasn’t sure about purchasing the socks because I was afraid they’d be itchy. They are not itchy and Jew my feet warm. When I wear them I don’t have to wear a jacket in air conditioning. Will be buying more.
Gotta have no show socks right? Bought mine back awhile ago and there built like foot tanks, but nothing lasts forever, after many seasons waiting for black boss socks I started to worry 😎. Don’t know how you guys fit it, my black boss socks have a new home, best regards mr. Happy feet💘
Great socks. Overall great fit and well made. Would recommend to anyone.
I rec’d my B.O.S.S. socks last week and have pretty much been wearing them everyday! I thought they would be too hot for the summer, but they wick any sweat away from your feet. I walk 6 miles/day and need really good socks as much as good shoes. I’ve been wanting these for awhile as I’ve loved my pro gear bison/silk socks for the winter and wanted to try the short socks for summer. They are so soft and fit perfectly (I wear a size 8 shoe and got small, so ordered down a size which worked great) I never thought I’d spend so much on socks but these are worth the money as they are so wonderful. The owners are very nice to work with as well. Thanks Buffalo Wool!!!
The short soxs are too hot for me. Could be because temperature is around 105 degrees this week. The Sox quality is great. Perhaps it will be better when it cools down some.
The quality of these socks blew me away. Best I’ve ever purchased!
Love these socks.
