What to look for in an Outdoor Sock:
I just finished a dogsledding/cross country skiing adventure with Outward Bound...
Fox River is best known for their high quality outdoor socks. From the casual hiker to the adventure trekker, you can appreciate the thoughtful design and high-quality fibers used to create a Fox River sock.
Depending on your outdoor adventure, you'll want to consider the following:
Warmth How much insulation do I need? Look at the weight of the sock and the insulating properties of the fiber. Lighter weight socks can be warm as well. For that extra layer, see our sock liners as well.
Fit and Moisture wicking Every hiker knows how blisters can ruin a good climb or hike. A good fit reduces friction, and moisture-wicking prevents the added friction of water against the skin. All Fox River socks are made with moisture wicking properties and a construction designed to follow and flex with the contours of the foot.
Cushion Strategic cushioning gives you added shock absorption and increases the durability of the sock. Your need for it depends on the unique shape of your foot and the type of footwear you will have on. Look for cushioning in the areas your foot is most tender, and avoid it where it will conflict with the fit of your shoe.
