USA Made with 100% American ComponentsI am not going to be modest, we have made a few pretty impressive socks here at The Buffalo Wool Co. From our extra heavyweight Trekker bison/merino crew and boot, our ultra-light warm and wicking Pro-gear bison/silk socks, our All-Weather all-around best short sock, The B.O.S.S., we push the envelope to create well loved (and reviewed) gear. Our drive to create socks designed and engineered to be the best for warmth, wicking, durability, flexibility, and sheer overall comfort resulted in the American Field (AF) Bison Boot Socks.
Why AF Boot Socks Are So Awesome
Our American Field Boot Socks are our premier bison down socks. This calf high sock is great for almost any footwear from taller boots like hiking chukkas to tennis shoes. Created from ultra-soft bison fiber, these socks will keep your feet warm and dry all year long.
The American Field Boot Socks are warmer and more cushioning than our Pro-gear socks and thinner and lighter than our Advantage Trekker Socks. Designed to be the ultimate sock for regulating temperature, moisture wicking, the AFs are also incredibly supportive, light to wear, but just as tough as our Bison/Merino blends.
All About The Bison Down
The American Fields start with ultra-soft bison fiber. We monitor the fiber every step of the way from scouring and dehairing the fiber, to working directly with the spinning mill to determine the perfect amount of twist and loft in the yarn.
Once we have the perfect Bison yarn, we pair it with traditional fibers to ensure flexibility in all the right places and ultra comfort for all day wear.

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.

Very comfortable & warm!
I was looking for crew socks, but the boot socks were on sale and I decided to give them a try. As I slid my feet into a new pair on a cold morning while I was dressing for a day of ski flying and skiing. Oh MY!! my feet felt like they were getting a warm gentle hug all the way from my toes up my calves. These socks are SO soft and warm. And they have nice elastic most of the way up the leg portion, so they stay up all day. And they really do get softer after a couple washings. They look shrunk when I pulled them out of the dryer, but my feet slid right into them with no scrunching or crowding. These socks are perfect for wearing with boots of all kinds. Hiking, hunting, skiing, snowshoeing and working in the wood shed. Do yourself a favor and get some for all your cool weather activities.
Socks are fantastic. Made breaking in my new hiking boots painless (not the case when I tried other socks!)
These are excellent boot socks. The lower foot fits very well and provides warmth (but not too warm) and good padding for heavier boots. The shaft doesn't sag, and keeps the top of my boots from rubbing. My only minor complaint is that because of the different fiber types, the boot socks need to air dry rather than go in the machine. Since I live in a very dry place, that's not a problem, but is is something that might be a difficulty for others.
Living an outdoor life in the Temperate Rainforest of Southeast Alaska, I needed an alternative when I developed an allergy to Wool. I bought these socks and enjoyed them so much I ordered more and gifts for the family for Christmas. At first I was very cautious and only used the socks for outings, now I wear them many days a week just to keep my feet warm and feeling good.
American Field Bison Boot Socks
i've been giving these socks to my husband for quite a while, he doesn't wear anything else any more. but these are mine, all mine! so comfortable, keeps my feet warm even now when it seems like spring will NEVER happen. they don't slip down and get all scrunched up under your feet, they stay where you put them (just like a well trained Border Collie!). try them, you'll never want to wear any other socks either!
I have tried about every sockthere is and these are the best I've ever found. I have feet issues that my feet are always cold but when I try to get something warmer they sweat and get cold cause they're damp and wet. I always get wool regardless but these regulate alot better than any I've tried. I want to get some thinner ones for summer also but I'm trying to wait on a sale lol. $$$
