Where to Find Vegan Hiking Socks

How many times have you picked up a pair of hiking socks, thinking they look pretty good, only to turn them over and see that they contain wool? I’ve definitely been there!

Here are a few options for non-wool hiking socks:

    Darn Tough all the way! They make great socks for running as well, thin to medium cushion. I would really like to see a company make a full on heavy weight sock for winter.

      Hey Jim! Thanks for your comment! I have a pair of Darn Tough running socks, too and I’m really happy when them. Have you ever had to return a pair when they wear out? My Darn Toughs are still pretty new so I’m wondering if they really do last forever.

        I’ve had one pair for a couple of years and still holding strong! Others are newer so time will tell but the use you will get out of them will well surpass any expectations .
