The "Best Overall Short Sock". 

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-enforced 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, hold up strong for 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. 

Fiber content; 30% Bison  / 30% Preshrunk Merino Wool / 30% Bamboo / 7% nylon and 3% Lycra spandex. 

  • 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
  • Colors available, Natural (Taupe), Black, Navy.
  • Bison logo on the toe
  • Made in the USA
  • Machine wash and dry

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.

Love these socks!

I have worn them in cold and warm temperatures and I'm amazed at how comfortable my feet are. Warm feet in cold temperatures and feet don't sweat on the warmer days.

Stephen M. (Citrus Heights, US)
Best ever

BOSS Socks are my summer favorite! These give a thick padding in water sandals and perfect wicking in my running shoes.
The BOSS are so good I gave a set of three pairs to two friends who hike outdoors with me.

Mark H. (Arlington, US)
The B.O.S.S. Navy & Black (discontinued colors)

Seems to be good value for the cost. Comfortable and soft.I'm happy.

Don F.J. (Irwin, US)
Great Made in America product!

These socks are great! They keep my feet warm and dry in cold winter months. I got my girlfriend a pair to try and she asked for more pairs. So I got more for both of us. Thank you Buffalo Wool Company for making great products that are made in America! I wish that the Black color were not discontinued and sold out because I would have purchased them to go with our Natural and Navy ones.

Deb (Colorado Springs, US)
B.O.S.S. (Navy)

Bought for my husband, he loves them as I wrote after a previous review for the BOSS natural color. He had sworn off all cotton socks! I’m sure this will be a yearly purchase - either his birthday or Christmas.
The navy BOSS has a higher bison fiber content than the natural. Too bad the black & navy colors were discontinued because I would have bought these colors in my size.

Bunny R. (Ventura, US)
Little but mighty

They are perfect

Tori (Bloomington, US)
I Love Bison Socks!!

I love my bison socks! They are soft and control the temp of my feet really well. My feet are never cold or sweaty! I wear a women's 7 shoe, so I'm on the border between sizes. I ordered down this time and I think I like that better.

Joni (Chicago, US)
Sorry the Dark Colors are Discontinued, but I LOVE these Socks

These are what I wear every day. They keep my feet comfortable winter and summer, though I do switch to other BWC socks for outside in the winter. They are soft and cushy and I love how they fit. Stocked up on the discontinued ones so I'd be set for a while.

Thank you Ms. Joni,

we will be more than happy to custom dye any for you in the future, just discontinuing dying the cones of yarn.. I think kettle dyed are going to be better.

Hope you are doing well, miss you
