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.

These are the highest quality wool sock. Very warm and comfortable. The company is eager to help if there are any questions or problems.
Wow! I have very cold feet and these are seriously cozy wearing around the house, running errands, and on cold afternoon neighborhood runs and walks. They literally can do anything.
They aren't restrictive like most other socks, warmth is just right (for me), no blisters while on a run. They are a little thicker than other socks, comparable to wool socks, so if your shoes don't have a little room at the end, you might be shoe shopping before you search for other socks. I haven't tested how they work with hot days though.
If your suggested size is right between two, go down a size. I have a little extra fabric at the heel that just needs to be adjusted to the middle of the foot when putting shoes on.
I love these socks! They were a bonus along with a hat I ordered for my husband. Okay, his 5th BWC hat, and I guess there are benefits for being a repeat customer ...
Anyway, the socks are my size, not his, so they must have been intended for me right? And I LOVE them. Seriously, love.
They're soft, warm, comfy, padded in all the right places, and fit into my boots without being too bulky.
I first bought these socks to wear when riding my bike on cool and cold days. They kept my toes warm so all was good. I found out they are pretty good for biking in warm and hot weather too. I even started wearing them them with my work shoes. I'd almost go as far to say they were the best overall sock, but with boots, I have to put on the Buffalo Wool Company crew socks.
Very comfortable and warm.
These are the best for warmth without being hot or sweaty and they don't itch. They are non binding and don't restrict circulation. They go through the washer and dryer and don't shrink or pill and they stay soft.
Thanks Buffalo Wool Company for such great socks.
Really nice socks! I prefer these for everyday socks, wearing them to work in an office and in my tennis shoes when I'm working out. They're thick enough to be a little too slippy to wear when I'm doing kettlebell exercises (you're supposed to be barefoot, but my feet get cold), but I just use merino socks for those exercises. The only thing that hurts a bit is the price, but I know I'm getting quality! I'll be getting more of these in the future!
