THE PERFECT PAIR : SMARTWOOL AND CLIMATE ADVOCACY
I have an overflowing sock bin, yet only a select few, maybe just 4 or 5, make it into my weekly sock rotation. My apologies to the other 50 pairs patiently waiting. I'll admit, I'm guilty of rummaging through my laundry basket to retrieve one of these preferred pairs instead of grabbing a fresh one.
But who can resist the allure of a cozy sock, keeping your feet snug and ready for your all your adventures? Smartwool socks showcase fun designs, cradle our toes in warmth, expertly wick away moisture, and stand as steadfast guardians against pesky blisters. What's more, they faithfully accompany us on all our journeys, whether it's through rugged trails, pristine skintracks, or winding single tracks.
As we embrace the last bit of fall and map out our upcoming adventures, we are thrilled to introduce our exciting new collaboration with Smartwool, designed to support you every step of the way!
A creative, warm and environmentally friendly sock
In collaboration with our dedicated advocacy partner, Smartwool, we have crafted a remarkable ski sock designed not only for top-notch performance on the trails or the slopes, but also to ignite the spirit of action against the pressing issue of climate change. These Merino wool socks not only promise unparalleled comfort during your adventures, but also proudly declare your status as a dedicated guardian of the great outdoors By choosing these socks, you're not just elevating your outdoor experience; you're also making a powerful statement of support for POW's tireless efforts in safeguarding the natural places we love. Let every step you take in these socks be a resounding echo of your commitment to preserving our precious wild places and combating climate change.
What we love about these socks:
