Purchasing hiking boots for that next big hiking trip can be a fun time. Lighter and higher performing materials will give you a quality boot. Though proceed with caution or at least with one added thought.

Don’t skimp on the hiking socks!

Many hikers have overspent to get the highest performing boot they can (or can’t) afford. They end up buying low quality hiking socks. Bad move.

This would be like getting the oil changed in your car, and asking the mechanic to use the oil taken out of the last car in the shop. Your car is doomed to not perform to the level that is possible.

The KEEN Boulder Canyon Crew socks is a high performing sock to go along with a high performing hiking boots.

They are comfortable to wear. This is due to the design of the sock and the materials used in it. The Boulder Canyon Crew socks are designed to fit anatomically to the foot to reduce bunching of material under the foot. There is ample cushioning which aids in the reducing the damage that is caused on a hikers feet and knees from pounding the trails

The top of the KEEN Boulder Canyon Crew socks keep their elasticity and stay up. Even on a nature trail when fashion is not an issue, socks that fall down are not comfortable and are annoying.

The materials used are non-cotton which helps keep your feet dry. The non-cotton materials used in the KEEN Boulder Canyon Crew socks wick away the moisture from your feet. This is especially important when winter hiking or snow shoeing.

If a hiker’s feet get wet in the winter in cotton socks, there is a heightened chance for frost bite since cotton materials takes much longer to dry. Merino wool is the major material used in these Keen socks. It’s a very soft wool and adds to the socks comfort.

KEEN LogoThe KEEN Boulder Canyon Crew socks will make that next big hiking adventure that much better. They come in two color schemes – Grey/Steel Blue and Dark Earth/Dark Earth. They are available in standard sizes of M, L, and XL and have an MSRP of $16.95.
