FITS Hiking Socks | First Impressions

Pictured: FITS Light Hiker Crew

FITS™socks have been all the rage lately, so we were excited when Santa dropped a few pairs at the Ryder-Walker office.

Our first impressions: These socks really do FIT! They’re super comfy, and they feel a little beefier than other brands in the toebox and heel area. (Sort of a cozy-blanket-for-your-toes kind of feeling.) They’re also made in the U.S.A. from high quality Merino wool. A few of our friends have these socks and they claim that they don’t wear out as fast as other popular brands. Let the testing begin!

We also like the story behind the company.

Knitting socks in Niota, TN since 1902, Crescent Sock Co. endured the ups and downs that shaped the character of America’s people and her textiles industry. Today, the company produces socks under its own FITS™name in the oldest operating hosiery mill in the U.S. 

Not bad.

As a family-owned business ourselves (operating for 30 years), we applaud the Crescent Sock Company’s 110 years of success.

FITS manufactures socks for hiking, skiing, running, cycling, and just loafing around. Check out their website for more info. Better yet, grab a pair or two for yourself and test them on one of our hiking tours. They just might FIT you too!

Fine print: We HAVE NOT been compensated in anyway, (socks, money or otherwise), to endorse this brand. If we’re not telling the truth, then let zombie gnomes eat us in our sleep.
