The sock that started it all! The venerable Medium Hiker. If you like a little more cushioning all around your foot but don’t want a really heavy sock, this is the sock for you. For years this sock has been the go-to sock for serious hikers who know the difference their socks can make day after day after day of hard hiking. It has seen duty on all the National trails and has been part of the best hikers’ essential equipment since it was introduced more than five years ago.
