Long days on your feet are long days in socks. Our Merino Wool work socks pair seamlessly with your work boots for the most comfortable socks for work. Incredibly durable, these USA made socks are reinforced to take on whatever construction sites, industrial floors, and leather boots can throw at them.

When the work site calls for safety footwear, try pairing your footwear with our Steely line. These socks feature a cushioned toe box for added comfort when wearing steel toe boots. For extra warmth, our midweight full cushion socks have cushion throughout, for thick work socks that are still breathable.

For almost any work footwear, you can’t go wrong with the classic work boot sock height. Quarter and micro crew socks pair well with shorter work shoes, while over-the-calf pairs well with chore boots or western boots.
