"Don't underestimate the value of a good quality natural fiber insole, they can add another ten degrees of comfort to your boots, and quality insoles may allow you to wear a lighter boot in colder weather. This is particularly nice for hunters, who may start the day sitting on a stand and then end up doing a lot of walking. Or if you work on cold concrete all day, you may be able to wear those comfortable work boots year round."

We listened to your feedback, and have improved what was already a truly amazing insole. The new ones are a slightly thinner version 4 mm, with a denser felt, made with a finer virgin American merino wool. These insoles are particularly nice for putting a warm insulation barrier between your feet and the frozen ground. Wicks moisture like only bison fiber can, and stays springy and resilient much longer than any poly-based foam. Keeps you comfortable and your feet dry all year long.
Natural fibers wick away moisture, absorb foot odor and keep your feet dry while adding additional comfort to your step. You can hand wash them in warm water with a wool-friendly soap and air dry to keep them clean and odorless.
- Large up to size 9.5 to 11.5 (12" long) -4 mm thick or 8 mm thick
- XL up to a size 12-14 (13' long) -4 mm thick or 8 mm thick
- Felt sheet 12" wide x 16" long - 4 mm thick or 8 mm thick
Trim them down to size. Have larger than a 13? We have a sheet of felt that measures 12" wide x 16" long to custom fit your insoles to fit your boot style.
Product review here is just one of the rave reviews from a happy happy guy:
This was my second year using The Buffalo Wool Co. silk-blend socks for a 2 week long moose hunting trip in Western Alaska. This year I also added the American Bison Insoles in my Muck boots. The use of insoles with the socks was incredible. Morning temperatures were in the teens and warming up to the upper forties during the day and then dropping quickly as the sun went down. My feet stayed warm and dry even when the day warmed up and your feet sweat in non-breathing hunting boots. Other hunters in my group had footwear issues with wet feet that were always cold in the evening. I believe in your products above others in the harsh Alaskan environment. We ended our hunt with 6 nice moose and very happy feet. Hope to see you again at our State Fair, a very satisfied ALASKAN hunter.

They fit into the boots perfectly after trimming to size. They added a measure of comfort and I assume warmth next fall.
I should get another pair so I don’t have to keep swapping them between my boots.
Received my socks just in time to sit for 8 hours, in sub freezing temps, at my son’s soccer tournament. Wore my socks, as well as my buffalo wool inserts, in my trusty hunting boots and my feet were toast all day. Saw one poor guy stuffing hand warmers in his shoes to warm up his feet. Not me, thanks for making a great American product.
These are some of the nicest socks I have ever had. Great product. I expect them to last a long time.
So happy with the comfort and warmth of my insoles.
I purchased them for my Dryshod boots that I wear in the butcher shop, that is in the 40's, that I cut for about 20 hours a week. I was hoping that they would help keep my toes warm. If anything I think they actually are colder then with the original insoles. The only thing I will say is the 8mm is a little more cushion. It actually seems to hold the cold in the boot longer with these insoles than the factory insoles. I'm now wearing hot hands in my boots or my toes literally go numb within the 4-5 hours per day I'm in there. Must just be me with all the 5 star ratings that I see.
Comfortable and wam
