Over the calf, and over the top.

This is a four season sock, great cushioning and support for standing in a river tossing flies at salmon, long hikes, hard hunts, and basically just keeping your feet dry and comfortable in most conditions.  They will stay fresh and funk free for days on end... pack less, travel more.  Less bulk and better fit, not quite as insulating as our Trekker or Pro-gear socks, but built to take whatever you can throw at them and still keep you cozy. 

The Buffalo Wool Co. Kenai Boot Socks feature:

  • URfit System for arch support and memory-knit construction
  • Smooth and flat comfort toe seam
  • Footbed is a luxurious bison down, ultra-fine merino, bamboo blend
  • Leg Shaft is an extremely comfortable military-spec polypropylene

Knit for us at Fox River Mills in Osage Iowa, those sock-creating geniuses marry military spec polypropylene on the sock shaft with our close-to-bulletproof bison down/ultra fine superwash Merino wool, and bamboo yarn blend in the foot. (the same yarn we use in our B.O.S.S. socks.) 

Anyone that has ever worn a pair of military polypro socks knows how supportive they are, but you have never felt the footbed comfort and warmth of our bison/merino/bamboo yarn blend at the same time.

The result is the exact sock that Fox River knits for the US Military but with your feet surrounded with the warm, moisture-wicking, comfortable, durable proportions of our BOSS Sock. This Mil-Top sock is about 3" taller than our Trekker boot sock ... right at mid-calf ... and with the stay-in-place power of mil-spec polypropylene.

As to scent capturing,  We had one of our spec testers, who claims to have worn them a ridiculous 12 days of elk hunting.  Now that would just be "Socks Abuse"!  But these are the top of the hunting/moving/walking sock food chain.  They are my "go-to" hard-wearing outdoor socks anymore.

      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.

      Shoe Size US Men US Women
      Small 3 – 6.5
      Medium 7 – 9 7 – 10
      Large 9.5 – 11.5 10.5 – 12.5

      Once you are ready to clean your gear, follow a few simple steps to care for your favorite socks, beanie, and gloves.

      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.

      Yarn Base Composition

      34% Bison Down / 33% Ultrafine Merino Wool / 33% bamboo fiber

      Overall Composition

      FOOT: 29% American bison down / 28% nylon / 25% bamboo / 16% merino wool / 2% Spandex | LEG: 72% polypropylene / 26% nylon / 2% Spandex

      He loves them!

      Stay from his buffalo! Talk about being protective about his socks! And he asked for more. So another it is! Thank you Buffalo Wool Co.

      Tough and Tender

      Great Socks; in line with all of the other BWC socks and other products. Wear these field hunting in 5-15 degree conditions (with my ULU boots) and never any cold feet. Thanks again.

      Riding socks done right

      These socks are killer for anyone riding long days through extreme temperatures, even when they get wet, no more cold feet

      Great all-around socks

      There are thicker, hotter socks by the BWC, but I like how these are warm and comfy but don’t need as much space inside your shoes. If these went over my calves instead of just halfway up I’d be totally nutz for them. I’ve already given these as gifts to three other people and more gifting maybe coming. While I have the BWC sleep socks, I’ve used these with great success, too, and they don’t come off at night.

      A very good all-round wool sock!
