The Bison socks are the best. I purchased the lighter weight crew socks and am highly impressed with them. Your feet stay warm but in warmer weather are very comfortable and dont get clammy. I highly recommend Bison Socks." Gerald F

This thing is a serious sock. 

Thick and Cushy, extremely warm and insulating, wicks moisture like crazy. 

It is probably more sock than most people need, but if you do stand all day in cold rivers, ice climb, or have dogs pull you around a glacier, this might be the sock for you.

 It doesn't get any better than this, if you need a very serious sock, the American Field will not disappoint you.  This thing will knock your... (well, you know the saying) 

This is our premier bison down sock, a calf-high blanket of cozy for your feet. Great for almost any footwear from tennis and hiking chukka's and taller boots, thick, soft, and well built. Will keep your feet warm and dry all year long. 

Whatever the heck you got... these things are light, medium thick, crazy warm, and very comfortable.  I can't imagine a  cold weather situation where this sock wouldn't be appropriate... 



There are other bison socks on the market, but we are the only ones who start from the beginning, from raising the bison, harvesting the fiber, scour and process the down, we source our own fiber for blending, design the yarns, and work with textile technologists and sock experts to make the best quality and most effective socks possible.  We do this entirely in the U.S. and stand behind every product we make 100%.  We will ensure you are comfortable, happy and hope that you will help spread the word about us.
