Our Trekker Boot Socks are our heaviest, most insulating, and most wicking sock. We’re sure these are likely the warmest socks on the planet. Well, the warmest that aren’t electric but they are silly and pretty impractical!
Trekker Boot Socks = Workhorse Gear
Designed to be your go-to extra heavyweight boot sock, our Trekkers are extremely thick, quite soft, and well built. Created with ultra-soft bison fiber, these socks are thicker and more cushioning than our Pro-gear socks. We use only properly processed bison fiber that is 100% free from stuff that will make the socks itchy or abrasive.
Our Trekkers feature a terry loop padded foot bed and are over-plaited in the toe, heel, and slightly up the leg to make sure your feet will be comfortable all day long.
Despite the extra cushioning and tough construction, these performance designed socks are intended to be worn with footwear. They are not intended to be worn as house slippers. You certainly can, but wearing them on concrete and abrasive surfaces will impact wear.
Trekker Boot Socks are awesome, but don’t just take our word for it!
We gave a pair of our Trekker boot socks to survival expert Leon Pantenburg, and here is his review.

Socks should be flush against your foot with no extra material sagging. The toe seam should lay flat across the top of the toes.

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.

I have had many pairs of these socks - I keep giving them away (washed, of course), to friends who appreciate them. They are tough-wearing, warm, and even cozy. I can't recommend them more highly.
Another great pair of socks.
Everything buffalo from this company is worth the money and will last my life time. Im so glad I cut their trail and tried a pair.
Wore them skiing in sub zero temps and where warm and very comfortable. Absolutely would recommend
I wore them a few times and Everytime my foot has not been musty or even sweaty after hours of work.
The hunting socks have a lot of heft but keep my feet warm and dry without any itching!
These socks are exactly what I was looking for. I’m a lineman, and recently moved to the Sierra Nevada mountains in Northern California. The socks keep my feet warm, dry and comfortable. I’m definitely going to purchase more pairs! Thanks guys
Wore these on summit night on Kilimanjaro. Weather was about 15 degrees and 50-60 mph sustained winds for 8 hours. These socks performed exceptionally well. Kept my feet warm, dry and blister free.
