You've asked for them, we made them, our new warmer climate short ankle socks, the "Best Overall Short Sock".
This sock has a great foot fit design with integrated 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.
- 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
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.

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.

Great company to deal with. Order wasn’t actually completed, emailed and they responded quickly. Hand delivered the socks that were missing. Looking forward to purchasing gloves, if and when they become available. Thank you!
These are awesome
Mild climate favorite
On rare occasions, a couple does well by doing good. Such is the case of Ron ans T’s company. Providing carefully crafted and fabulous products, while, at the same time assisting in the viable sustainability of the American Bison; a population that went from 60 Million to a estimate of 541 total in 1889, according to Frank Mayer a contemporary hunter.
Every day my family and I wear their super socks is a daily reminder of a past nearly lost and a present gradual recovery of a 15000+ years heritage for all of us, in part, thanks to the efforts, skill, craftsmanship and education of the whole Buffalo Wool family. Congratulations and thank you for being there.
The B.O.S.S. socks are a perfect fit, true to size and feel wonderful on my feet. Purchased only one pair to try out and will include definitely include extras in future orders.
Amazing sock from fit to finish.
The BOSS is the most comfortable and durable socks that I had ever owned. Well worth the extra $$
