LaCrosse Men’s Merino Midweight Socks

LaCrosse Men’s Merino Midweight Sock

Socks are the proverbial no-no when it comes to thoughtful gifts, but stay with me here. These aren’t ordinary socks; they’re specifically designed to provide optimal moisture-wicking when worn with LaCrosse knee-high boots. These made-in-the-USA socks are crafted from ethically sourced, non-Mulesed merino wool and feature an over-the-calf design for maximum comfort. They also feature arch support to help reduce fatigue when walking or standing — perfect for when you’ve hiked several miles onto public land and then have to stand in place while a big buck mills around just outside of bow range. Alphaburly Pros make for a nice gift, too, of course. $19 | lacrossefootwear.com
