The "Mil-Top" Hunting Boot sock


We have now finished our fifth hunting season for these beauties.  The customer opinions are in!  These are the best hunting boot socks we have ever produced... and we have three great ones already before these!

I thought we were out of Large .... but found one more box of foliage green in the warehouse, Hurray.   But these are the last ... we cannot re-create the bison/yak yarn to this spec in the US ... and we can't send any bison fiber to our overseas spinner during these uncertain times ... they are afraid it will simply be confiscated.  So, grab these while you can ... and enjoy years of great comfort and warmth in the wilds.

It will either be the foliage green or the coyote brown .... but it will be what we have, no choice on color any more, sorry.

Knit at Fox River Mills, those sock creating geniuses marry military spec polypropylene on the sock shaft with our close-to-bulletproof bison down/yak down/silicon polyester yarn in the foot.

Anyone that has ever worn a pair of military polypro socks know how supportive they are, but you have never felt the foot bed comfort and warmth of our bison/yak yarn blend at the same time.

The result is the exact sock that Fox River knits for the US Military, but with your feet surrounded with the warm, moisture - wicking, comfortable, durable proportions of our "Close-to-the-Ultimate" Boot Sock. This Mil-Top sock is about 3" taller than our CTTU boot sock ... right at mid-calf ... and with the stay-in-place power of mil spec polypropylene.

As to scent capturing, see the two reviews on the home page.  We had one other guy in the store that claims to have worn them a ridiculous 12 days elk hunting.  Now that would just be "Socks Abuse"!  But these are the top of the hunting/moving/walking sock food chain.  They are my "go-to" cold weather outdoor sock any more.

Great sock

Best socks I have ever owned. I have worn every day other than when I wash. I want and will order more

Paul: Thank you for the great review. Most appreciated (and folks, he absolutely ordered several more pair ... and they have to go all the way 'Down Under'). Shipping them off right now. Best wishes.

The "Mil-Top" Hunting Boot sock

Love these socks

The socks are warm and stay put. They feel just right at the top to stay snug. The foot is a little thinner than most of the other boot socks which is great because I can also wear them in my sneakers and dress shoes. And here in the midwest it gets cold so having a warm sock I can wear with my dress shoes as well as with boots helps keep me warm at all times. The stretchy material of the leg is also warm and doesn't make my legs sweat which is really something great, thanks again for another pair of socks to keep my feet and legs warm even when it is 10 below zero.

Only 1 thing keeping from 5 ⭐️

I’ve purchased several pairs of socks from HerdWear and no doubt Cecil treats his customers top notch.

I recently purchased the Mil-Top sock with one reservation and it’s that one reservation that held true for me personally. First the socks are high quality, very warm yet have advanced technical upgrades. The one drawback, and this is only personal preference, is I am not a fan of over-the-calf socks. My personal preference is more crew length. Crew length with the warm foot box and technical upper sock would be perfect for me. Regardless the socks are well constructed, high quality and undeniably very warm.

I will certainly buy more from HerdWear in the future!

Shane: Wish you had let me know about the sock height. We (BWC) just got a shipment of their American Field sock .... that Fox River mistakenly did as crew height instead of boot height. That sock is a 70/30 bison/superwash merino yarn blend. Plenty warm ... same technical foot structure. Feels great. And lucky for you they did them in a large size.

I'll 'swap' you the Mil-top's if you want. Send them back and I'll send you the American Field Socks. Or if you just want to swap out one pair first to try we can do that. Whatever works for you. Best wishes.

Great sock

Feels great. Fits great. Will test in January on a hunt in the mountains of New Mexico.

Great stay up socks

I love the foot part of the socks for warm comfort. The shaft of the sock is comfortable but a little snug on my admittedly large calves. These socks breath well with no sweaty foot problems.
