Socks for Travel

Versatility is your friend when it comes to packing for winter travel. A single pair of Merino wool casual socks can take you from the airport to your mother-in-law’s cold tile floors and back again. Merino wool naturally wicks away moisture, helping to keep odor under control so you can travel light. But the best casual winter socks for travel also look great, so you can breeze through airport security with confidence.

Socks for Parties

When you’re all spiffed up in your party clothes, you probably don’t want to ruin the effect with bulky wool socks. You can still get as much warmth and comfort as possible with Merino wool socks in disguise. Our recommendation for men comes in sophisticated dark colors that won’t stand out between your party pants and dress shoes. And women will find dress flats and heels far more comfortable with our no-show casual socks (probably the best invention of all time).

Socks for Curling Up

Whether you’re nesting on the sofa binge watching your favorite show or nursing a pesky winter cold, sometimes you want a casual sock that’s extra cozy, like a blanket for your feet. The best casual winter socks for lounging pair well with hot cider and oatmeal cookies.

Socks for Gift-Giving

It’s a fact: everyone you know likely wears socks, from your grandma to your ping-pong partner. Your boss even puts her socks on one foot at a time, just like everyone else. But do they know about Merino wool socks yet? Some people go through life thinking all socks are created equal, so it will change their lives when you introduce them to Merino wool socks with light cushioning and a supportive arch. Don’t worry if you don’t know the sock status of everyone on your gift list — those who are already enlightened appreciate every new pair of casual socks for winter. Our staff picks come pre-boxed for ridiculously easy wrapping.

Socks for Office Life

The best casual winter socks for the work week will take you from budget meeting to happy hour, with a lunchtime power walk in between. Nothing delivers all-day comfort like Merino wool — you’ll be prepared whether your office is overheated or on the chilly side. And since stylish boots are standard winter office wear for many women, we offer casual boot socks in various lengths.
