Herd Wear Bison/Silk "Technical" Structured Boot Sock


We have seven years now (and counting) of happy customers with comfortable and warm feet in this "super sock." Stop cold feet and enjoy your outdoor time with our bison/silk/nylon/spandex Technical Boot Sock.

Bison down and silk ... two of natures most perfect insulators to keep you at body temperature. For active wear all fall and winter: not too hot and never too cold.

Terry loop under the foot bed adds comfort; vented and structured over the instep keeps it in place as you move. There is a nicely placed and very comfortable terry loop shin pad. and just enough spandex to hold this sock above a 10" boot top – but not enough to restrict circulation. Nylon over-plaited in the toe and way up past the heel for long, smooth wear. Machine washable on cold.

Knit by Fox River Mills in Osage, IA. with our custom-produced Buffalo Gold half bison/half silk yarn

Let me also explain the percentages of each yarn that will be on the sock packaging.  We send Fox River our 50% bison down/ 50% silk yarn.  They design and knit the socks and add nylon in the toe and heel and spandex to create the final sock.  They have to calculate by weight (not by yardage) how much of each yarn and fiber are in each batch (and each size) of our socks.  So ... while the base yarn that touches your foot is still half bison/half silk, the total percentages have to include the construction materials .. the nylon and spandex ... which brings the total bison and silk percentages down.  Hope that is understandable.

I have to admit I never paid much attention to socks in general, but these Bison socks are the finest I have ever worn. Highly recommend

Herd Wear Bison/Silk SOCKS

These socks are unbelievable. Both my husband and I wear these socks and they are the most comfortable, breathable, feet remain dry, etc.
Would highly recommend them.

Herds wear Buffalo Socks

The Herd Family tradition is new socks for all @ Christmas. After 5 years some have holes but kids continue to wear! I forgot to buy buffalo socks for stocking stuffers 1 yr but won’t let them down again!
Enjoy Winter comfortably

Great socks!

I love these socks! I have 3 pairs and wear them as often as they are clean

Met all of my high expectations!

These are truly fine socks, should wear a long time. Extra soft, yet rugged, and well constructed ! Will be buying more

You keep those expectations right up there and we will continue to do our best to match them .. every time.

Best wishes

Bison/Silk Boot Sock

I bought a pair of these bison socks two years ago in the Goodnight store. They are still going strong. These are tremendously comfortable and while they keep your toes warm in the deer blind, they are not too hot for everyday cool weather wear. I suggest you buy the socks first and take them with you when you purchase your next pair of boots. That way you will be sure to have the best fit with the best pair of socks ever. I now have a second pair as backup. These socks are well worth the price.

Michael: Excellent advise and most appreciatred. So glad you are that pleased; we'll keep working on it.

Best wishes

warm even when wet

I just did return from a fishing trip to the russian tundra. The boots of my waders were leaking, therefore my feet got wet. I was glad that I had my newly bought herd wear bison socks on. Even though the socks were wet they still kept my feet warm and cozy! Just like the gloves.

Claudio: Tell us more about the fishing!! That had to be exciting. So glad the socks performed as we expect ... Any pictures of the fish and fishing you might care to share would be most welcomed. Welcome Home (and now get those boots patched!!)
