Yes, for the first time in our 14 year history, we have Trekkers available in Nov/December!
Large and Medium are finished and have been put back in stock! Will be shipping here next week, and on their way to you by Dec 2.
Surprisingly Soft and Seriously Warm
Our Trekker Boot Socks are our heaviest, most insulating, and most wicking sock. We’re sure these are likely the warmest socks on the planet. Well, the warmest that aren’t electric but they are silly and pretty impractical!
Trekker Boot Socks = Workhorse Gear
Designed to be your go-to extra heavyweight boot sock, our Trekkers are extremely thick, quite soft, and well built. Created with ultra-soft bison fiber, these socks are thicker and more cushioning than our Pro-gear socks. We use only properly processed bison fiber that is 100% free from stuff that will make the socks itchy or abrasive.
Our Trekkers feature a terry loop padded foot bed and are over-plaited in the toe, heel, and slightly up the leg to make sure your feet will be comfortable all day long.
Despite the extra cushioning and tough construction, these performance designed socks are intended to be worn with footwear. They are not intended to be worn as house slippers. You certainly can, but wearing them on concrete and abrasive surfaces will impact wear.
Trekker Boot Socks are awesome, but don’t just take our word for it!
We gave a pair of our Trekker boot socks to survival expert Leon Pantenburg, and here is his review.

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.

Awesome socks!!! From someone that can clear a room with stinky feet, NO STINK at all with these socks. And the socks themselves don’t smell after taking them off. We will be buying more! I recommend these to everyone.
The socks were even thicker than anticipated. Made
My boots a little snug, but kept my feet toasty.
They are soft and my feet haves stayed warm sitting for hours in my tree stand with temperatures in the teens and 20’s Very satisfied
These socks are "just right." Actually, Goldilocks was being a bit reserved in her comment; these socks are perfect. Perfect fit, perfect weight..... And perfectly made. Great for every-day wear..... Not too hot, not too cold..... Just right!
I was excited to have ordered the sock. Feels nice and soft. It is also nice and warm. I was a bit disappointed that the sock started losing its elastic feel. Meaning, the sock started getting sloppy and dropping down my leg minutes after walking in them. This happened after only machine washing it once. I will ofcourse still wear it. I'm just not sure if I will continue buying more socks considering this. I don't like the feel of socks being loose and sagging when walking (also turning on my feet a bit).
I luv these boot socks. Fit great, keep my feet comfortable and warm. I highly recommend these socks.
Hasn’t been cold enough here in Saskatchewan to share feedback on how warm they are which is why I purchased them ....but the quality looks very good ….
Been hunting in the Northeast 30+ years. My feet were always cold no matter what I did. BUT these socks changed all that…so warm & comfortable. LOVE THEM! Recommending them to all my friends!
