They help people experience powerful, beautiful moments in the outdoors by working to remove distraction like clammy base layers and blistered feet, so you can focus on the adventures right in front of you. They exist to enable your every adventure, whether it’s taking your dog for a walk on a chilly morning or summiting an unclimbed peak in the Himalayas.

The Smartwool community is a collection of people who believe that time outside is valuable, restorative, and essential for everyone. They started making socks in 1994 because they wanted to be able to ski longer without getting cold toes. They realised the performance benefits of Merino wool: soft, moisture-wicking, thermoregulating, sustainable and odour-neutralising.
