Best Socks for Cowboy Boots and Why

Everyone likes to talk about their boots, but our socks are often the difference between our cowboy boots being comfortable or not.

We wear socks every day and they are essential to the fit and comfort of our boot as well as the protection of our skin.  Your feet will feel the difference in how your cowboy boots fit as well as the health of your feet may depend on the socks you wear.

Why Wear Socks?

  • Socks absorb moisture, keeping your feet drier and healthier, especially as your feet sweat. Sweat creates bacteria and the longer that sweat sits on your skin in warm, dark places (like the inside of your boots), the more bacteria and fungus can grow and create foot odor. Keeping your feet dry will combat this as a good pair of socks will absorb and wick away moisture while fighting foot odor.
  • Socks are a protective barrier between the skin of your feet and the cowboy boot itself. This helps prevent blisters and raw spots.
  • Socks provide additional cushioning and comfort.
  • Socks help regulate foot temperatures and will keep your feet fresh and cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

What makes for a good pair of boot socks?

Moisture Wicking

  • To protect your feet, make sure you have a pair of moisture-wicking socks
  • Moisture-wicking is the material's ability to take or absorb the sweat away from your feet and passing it through the material to evaporate, keeping feet dry. Moisture-wicking fabrics pull the moisture away using tiny, built-in capillaries.

Over-the-Calf Socks

  • Over-the-Calf Fit – Due to the tall shaft of cowboy boots, you will want to have a tall sock that will fit over your calf. Over-the-Calf socks will have a ribbon at the top to keep the socks up on your calf, so sock stays up over your calf, doesn’t sag and bunch up and become uncomfortable.
  • Seamless Toe – Feet are sensitive. A seamless toe provides comfort and keeps your feed from being irritated.  A seamless toe is a must for any cowboy or cowgirl on their feet all day. Seamless toes keeps blisters and rubbing away and keeps pressure off the feet.
