Seriously warm - Surprisingly soft
We created a sock from Bison down and silk that will keep your feet warm and dry all winter long. When summer comes, don't worry, they will also provide 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.
We very carefully remove all the guard hair, and scour the fiber so it is soft, cuddly and very very warm. No prickly itch from these socks.
The shorter brother to the Pro-Gear Technical Boot Sock. A terry loop cushioned footbed, vented and structured instep for smooth fit...but crew height. A nylon over-plaited toe and heel for added strength where you need and want it most. 8" rise (on average)
- Terry loop cushioned footbed
- Vented side
- Flat toe seam
- Reinforced toe and heel, nylon over- plaited

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.

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
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.

I still have my socks on as the weather changed from being really warm to a very brisk ‘cold’. The Sun is out, but the weather is a brisk cold today... I’ve come to the recognition that my Bison Wool socks to be an equivalent to a good pair of hiking boots... 😃
Socks are great at transitioning from indoors to the cold weather outside; still comfy 👍🏻🙂
I’ve had other wool socks in the past but these really feel great. I love the cushion feel.
These are great for keeping your feet warm.
I wear a size 9 shoe so the medium size sock fits me just right. Pro Gear Crews are comfortable with a cushion feel. I’ll wear them all year long with added warmth in cold weather. Also love the black choice in colors.
My husband loves his and my son-in-law is anxious for his next hike so he can test them out!
Expensive but worth every penny. Already knew they kept feet warm in 20 degree weather. Doubted they could work at all in hot weather. I was wrong. Wore them on a 106 degree day and feet remained dry and as comfortable as any cotton socks would have been.
