Smartwool Kids' Hike Light Cushion Ankle Socks
The Smartwool Story
Smartwool is a little ski-town brand founded by Peter and Patty Duke—ski instructors who moved in 1994 from the East Coast to Steamboat, Colorado. “That first year in Steamboat was the coldest my feet have ever been,” Peter was quoted in an Outdoor Retailer article from 2017. “I literally poured water out of my boots at the end of the day! A friend and I made some merino socks, and after that my feet were the warmest they’ve ever been, and they were absolutely dry. That’s when the lightbulb went off.”
Constructed with light cushioning, the Kids’ Hike Light Cushion Ankle Socks are guaranteed to last you for many years to come. But when they DO eventually wear out, these socks are made of biodegradable materials so it only takes a few years before they totally decompose! Smartwool practices ethical sourcing and sustainable manufacturing and use natural and recycled wool.
Happy sheep make for happy customers, which is why Smartwool works to ensure that the Merino sheep whose wool they shear live happy, peaceful lives in their natural habitat. Coming off the sheep greasy, the wool is cleaned, combed, and spun into yarn which is then made into amazing Smartwool products, available right here for the comfort of campers’ rambling feet! High-performing and uncompromisingly comfortable, Smartwool socks are an excellent choice for the active camper!
