"Don't underestimate the value of a good quality natural fiber insole, hey 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.
I live in Florida, so why do I need bison insoles? I put them in my boat shoes -- which I wear constantly without socks. The insoles provide a nice cushion and absorb or wick away the moisture so my feet stay dry. Also, they do an outstanding job of preventing my every day shoes from developing an unpleasant odor. So glad I found these. I love them.
I purchased Mukluks this year and plan on using the insoles this winter. My feet will be warm and toasty!
They fit in my shoes great, ready for next winter.
These insoles have shown to be easy to insert/extract, easy to modify and do not contribute to excessive crowding of your toes in the footbed.
I bought a pair of your Advantage Trekker socks and my feet are rejoicing! I have a medical condition on my feet called chilblains or pernio which means that I need to keep them warm in the cooler seasons. If I don't, the toes develop very painful red spots on them. I've tried all kinds of wool socks & even bought some pure cashmere socks. Only these socks from your company have truly helped me. They are not only warm but are soft and nicely cushioned inside. I can hardly wait until your stock is replenished & I an order more!
When I saw these sheets of insole material, I immediately bought two sheets and plan to sew a bag out of them. Another idea is some serious insulation. Great product!
I travel for months at time for work. So I sent some socks to my nephews. The best warm hug I could give them. Thanks BWC.
I had a pair of LL Bean Maine Hunting Shoes that were a little cold on the bottom and just a little too loose. Started looking for wool insoles to solve the problem when I came upon The Buffalo Wool Co. and decided to give them a try.
Super glad I tried them! They solved the two problems completely and that encouraged me to try a couple pair of their socks also, with the same great results. They make great products for this Arkansas rancher.
