You've asked for them, we made them, our new warmer climate short ankle socks,  "Best Overall Short Sock", the BOSS

This sock has a great foot fit design with integraB.O.S.S. sockted arch support, terry loop cushioning through the footbed, flat toe seam, breathing toe box, ultra re-inforced on the heel and ball of the foot.  It is insulating, soft and durable,  wicking moisture away like nothing you’ve ever experienced. They are a little heavier and more cushioning than you would expect but truly maintain your body temp without trapping excess heat. 

Designed for a 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, 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.  

B.O.S.S Features: 

  • Targeted cushioning system
  • Volumetric compression - full foot compression supports you during and after intense activity.
  • Spandex arch support helps fight fatigue and keeps the sock in place
  • The vented panel provides breathability 
  • A smooth flat toe seam
  • Reinforced heel and toe wear zones
  • Bison logo on the toe
  • Yarn and knitting are made in the USA

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.

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.

Now I have 2-Favorite Socks

My favorite sock for winter and cold weather is the Sleep Sock, but I was also curious about the BOSS Short Sock. After asking a few questions over the phone decided to order 6-pair. I absolutely love these socks equally. I am especially happy that there are no seams that rub on the top of your toes on either of these socks. I will be buying more of these BOSS Short Socks.

Warm hug

I can’t figure out why people still buy cotton socks! These are like a warm hug on your feet! Love this material so much! I need to get some Kenai next since they are the same composition. They keep your feet warm when you need it and cool when it’s hot. Also they’re great when you get your feet wet as they still insulate.
