Possum hikers are the best socks for hiking because we designed them for just that purpose. The secret is the rich blend of natural merino wool, possum fur and cotton balanced with nylon and elastic for a close comfortable fit, because no hiker wants two boots full of bunched socks. The natural fibres keep your feet warm, even when they’re wet, and breathing freely, even when you’re breathing hard. Try a pair and discover why they’re the best socks for hiking. 30% Merino, 20% Possum, 20% Cotton, 22% Nylon, 8% Elastic. Made in New Zealand by Norsewear.

This is our favourite sock by far. Both for travel (take it as your only hiking sock / warm sock) and for daily use at home (great in slippers) and out and about in the shoulder seasons and winter. He wears an XL (UK 13) and she wears a S (UK women 6.5). They feel thick and are incredibly warm but are actually quite a thin sock (somewhere between dress sock and mid weight sock) so will fit in shoes, boots and hiking boots. Neither pair are showing any signs of wear after 6 months of almost daily use, so the addition of the cotton and nylon mix especially in the reinforced heel and toe is well placed. They are at least twice as warm as our normal wool socks of the same thickness, are softer given the possum content and feel extremely well put together. For comparison, they feel higher quality than Icebreaker socks.
