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 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, 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; yarn blend used for socks (33% Bison, 33% Merino Wool, 33% Bamboo) the sock percentage is based on weight of materials, 36% Nylon / 25% Bison  /  21% Bamboo /  13% Preshrunk Merino Wool / 3% Polyester and 2% 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
  • Bison logo on the toe
  • Yarn and knitting are made in the USA

Material Composition

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.
