One of the most important (and maybe most often overlooked) parts of any hiking getup are a solid pair of socks. Hit the trail without them, you’ll be in a world of pain. Grab the right ones, however, and you can worry less about your feet and more about scarfing down trail mix and enjoying the outdoors. The Stance Adventure Socks fall into the latter category.
Stance made their name by making and selling technically advanced socks with sharp styling built for the athlete. By the looks of it, they’re taking much the same approach with their hiking socks. Each pair in their new line features an integrated mesh, special compression, anatomical cushioning, and deathless threads for a great feel even through constant use. What really sets these apart from others on the market is that they come in tiered categories determined by the length of the hike your are planning on going on. Their Outdoor sock is best fit for more moderate hikes – think everyday use or maybe a 5k walk, while their Hike and Trek socks are built for 15k and 50k excursions out into the backcountry. You can throw some on before your next adventure starting at $20. [Purchase]
