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.

Best socks for Hockey, Skiing, and winter Teleworking

No joke. Best socks hands down for skiing and playing hockey. I am buying more now, because not only are they legendarily comfy, but their performance and durability is out of this world. They keep keep my toes warm all day, and have now become my favorite teleworking socks, especially during the winter. I have come back and bought another pair every year, and about to do the same thing again right now! Awesome product 6/5 star socks

so warm!

My husband loves these socks--they are very warm, as promised, and comfy.

Great socks

We purchased a pair a few Christmas’s back for my son who
hunts and he loved them and wore them out over the course of a year as he used them at his work too. He works construction so they made it a year of washings and wearing. My Daughter in law loves them as his feet rarely smell when he wears them.
So this Christmas I purchased a pair for him and for her as they are both very active outdoors. Great great socks.!

WARM and Comfy

I have very cold feet. they know the seasons and come late fall they are on permanent freeze. My husband stopped at the store 5 years ago on his way to someplace else and discovered the buffalo socks...the rest is history. These are very comfortable, well padded and so warm. I can’t say enough good things about these socks and about buffalo socks. They are wonderful.
