Inspired and designed with legendary Vermont snowboarder and backcountry wizard, Jake Blauvelt, the Backwoods Over-the-Calf sock delivers both underfoot and shin comfort in a boot thanks to added terry loop cushion. With bolstered durability and Vermont-inspired looks, you may never ride as well as Jake, but you can wear the same socks (for life) —and that's something.

Weight: Lightweight

  • Men's over the calf socks average 17 in. from heel to cuff - expect them to cover the leg to just below the knee.
  • A performance fit means no slipping, no bunching, no boundaries. Here's to feeling connected and comfortable in your boots run after run.
  • We collaborated with legendary VT snowboarder Jake Blauvelt to develop socks that deliver pro-level comfort, durability, and fit.
  • Reinforced Achilles cushion reduces heel lift, which helps socks feel better on and last season to season.
  • Merino Wool has a natural ability to move heat and moisture, keeping skier's and rider's feet warm and dry.
  • Lightweight socks balance breathability with responsive temperature regulation to keep feet comfortable all day.
  • The “still” in Still Made in Vermont, USA is personal. We knit all our socks at our VT-based Mills - we can't imagine it any other way.
  • Unconditionally Guaranteed for Life - if these aren’t the longest lasting socks you’ve ever owned, return them for another pair.
