Sockspert Opinions

John's Thoughts

This is one of our most popular winter boot socks. It is a good combination of weight and length. This sock isn't so thick that can't move around and feel comfortable. If you're looking for a good overall winter boot sock, this is an excellent choice.

If you really want a warmer sock, I would recommend going with the Wigwam Canada. It is similar to the 40 Below but even thicker. Be careful, the Canada will most likely be too warm if you're going to be active.
