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 integraB.O.S.S. sockted 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, 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.  

B.O.S.S Features: 

  • Targeted cushioning system
  • Volumetric compression - full foot compression supports you during and after intense activity.
  • Spandex arch support helps fight fatigue and keeps the sock in place
  • The vented panel provides breathability 
  • A smooth flat toe seam
  • Reinforced heel and toe wear zones
  • Bison logo on the toe
  • Yarn and knitting are made in the USA

Sock Sizing

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. If you wear a wide shoe size (E+), consider sizing up.

How to Care for your favorite bison fiber gear

Material Composition

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.

The B.O.S.S. - Ultralight Gear Short Sock

Leary of the BOSS sock

My husband only used cotton socks. I purchased Him some BOSS socks and that is all he wears now! Loves the wicking and how feel on his feet! He loves them. Highly recommend!

Your search for the perfect socks is over

Product Description says it all “ best overall short sock”. You can’t go wrong. Also got the pro crew. Amazing!

Excellent and WARM socks

I bought wonderful knee-length socks from The Buffalo Wool Co. years ago, but I had never bought their BOSS short socks until very recently. Now I wish I hadn't waited so long! These short socks are excellent for keeping my feet warm in Oregon's chilly, wet late-winter/early-spring weather. The BOSS socks are very soft, very comfortable, and wash up easily. Like others have commented, I wear these socks two or three times before I need to wash them.

I am a BWC sock fanatic and I love these just as much as all of my others. Don't ask how many pairs I own, my sock drawer overfloweth. My feet will not be uncomfortable ever again in this lifetime.

LOVE these socks!

I have been experimenting with these socks since I heard you could wear them more than once, and that is a fact! I have trouble with synthetics and can only wear my OLD socks once then they need to be washed, especially if I wore them to the gym (warm, but not overly warm - hello, I work out in them, yet on cold days, they keep my feet toasty warm) These socks can be worn much longer, not even kidding. I went two weeks on the last washing, and that was wearing them EVERY day - not even the slightest smell nor were they visually soiled. These products are amazing, and I will definitely be purchasing more socks. I don't usually go two weeks without washing my socks, but if I do, they are Buffalo Wool Company Boss socks! :)
