Keen Olympus Crew Sock

Keen Olympus Crew Sock

Socks are socks, right? Well, ask any long distance backpacker and they’ll tell you that socks can make or break you when you’re on the trail long term. This spring, Keen’s introducing the Keen Olympus Crew Sock, the best hiking/backpacking sock we’ve ever seen hit the market.

The Keen Olympus Crew Sock is one of the most durable, comfortable, and well-designed high performance socks we’ve ever seen. 45% of its construction is merino wool (a brilliant fabric that’s no itch, warm when wet, moisture wicking, and odor-preventing), and the fabric has high tenacity nylon fibers integrated into the heel and toe. For those keeping score at home, high-tenacity nylon is ridiculously comfortable and stronger than steel (by weight). The Olympus socks are asymmetrically designed to accommodate each foot correctly, preventing unnecessary bunching or sagging, and a seamless toe design keeps the sock from developing extra fabric underfoot (a common cause of blisters). Add to all of this a group of mesh panels for ventilation and you have one ridiculously specced out sock that will last a lifetime (or Keen guarantees they’ll replace it). They’re perfect for even the most demanding hikers, bikers, climbers, backpackers, and travelers.
