When you need tall boot protection without the bulk slip into this tough as nails medium layer sock with reinforced heel toe and shins pads so you won't feel any lacing pressure. Insulates when damp and itch free. Mid-Weight over the calf.
Nice cold weather sock with a good fit. Excellent fit just below the knee not too tight but yet it stays right there. Comfortable padding along shin bone and just above ankle. Reinforced heel and toe area, with padding along bottom of foot. Good soft texture. Very pleased with the socks and would recommend.
I film for an outdoor television show, and have worn these socks filming sheep and goats in Alaska and British Columbia, as well as Spain and New Zealand. I have put a lot of miles on Kenetrek boots and socks, they have always protected me and I can't recommend them strongly enough!
Bought these based on how well I like my Mountain Extremes. Absolutely worth every cent! They stay up all day, kept my feet dry with their wicking abilities, and was blister free even after a 2.5 mile elk packout! My feet did get a little cold when temps were in the 20s with an 8" snow on but after sitting a couple hours glassing that's to be expected with just these socks and only 400 grams of insulate in the boots. However after 5 minutes of hiking was warm and toasty again. Definitely going to be buying more!
