Whether you're en route to your favorite camping spot or can't stop thinking about your next hiking trip, the Franklin is your go-to pair for any activity. Made with 100% American merino wool, this lightweight crew sock offers natural moisture-wicking and antimicrobial properties perfect for all seasons. Half-density cushioning along the bottom of the foot reduces impact and fatigue to keep you comfortable while hiking to explore or setting up camp.
U.S. Merino Wool - Merino wool is soft, itch-free, naturally odor- and bacteria-resistant, cool in the summer and warm in winter. We source our 100% U.S. grown merino wool exclusively from sheep raised by American farmers on American farms.
Hidden Nylon Plaiting - Advanced construction that sandwiches stretch yarns between two layers of body yarn, hidden nylon plaiting creates a smooth exterior and a low-profile fit that is ideal for technical and sport socks. A side benefit of this modern knitting technique is its ability to incorporate complex patterns, open-weave zones, and intricate designs for increased performance and extra style.
Bottom-of-Foot Cushion Zone - Found throughout our Sport collection and in some Hike models, bottom-of-foot cushioning adds shock-absorbing loop knit across the entire sole, from the toes to the heel. Cushioning here reduces impact from running and hiking, and the fitted instep won€™t interfere with low-volume shoes.
Half-Density Cushioning - On the inside of the sock, a terry knit loop every other stitch creates half-density cushioning to add softness and wicking performance without dramatically affecting sock thickness. Its lower density makes it ideal for casual socks.
Seamless Toe Closure - Advanced knitting techniques create a totally flat connection in the toe box, reducing bulk and eliminating blister-generating friction.
Comfort Compression - Circumferential compression from the top of the sock through the arch creates a precise, comfortable fit that helps support the foot throughout the day.
Durability Assured - Reinforced construction and low-stress seam placement reduce wear and tear, increasing the life of the sock.
