Best Hiking Socks (Who Makes Them?)

There are a lot of factors that go into making the best hiking socks. In this video I cover what makes a good hiking sock and give you my opinion on who makes them. Whether you’re setting out on a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail or a weekend hike, your choice of socks is important. The best hiking socks will help prevent blisters and foot injuries on trail.
