One of the things I love about winter is snuggling up by the fire with some thick socks on, curling up with a book and keeping toasty warm right down to my toes 🙂 so when The Great Canadian Sox Company got in touch and asked me if I’d like to try some of the warmest socks in the world, I was like ‘you guys, I’ve got this!’
The Great Canadian Sox Co. was established in 1934, making it one of the oldest companies in Canada! J.B. Field’s is their flagship brand, and these guys really know what they’re doing when it comes to keeping you warm.
When you’re travelling, I’ve found that it pays to pack light. If you’re hiking, skiing or camping, or even if it’s just boots weather, you’re gonna need a pair of long socks. If you’re Canadian you know what I’m talking about! So if you pack just one pair, this is the pair you need.
Why are they so great?
What makes them unique is that they make extreme cold weather socks for -30,-40, and -50 degrees. The company was originally set up to manufacture socks designed for the logging industry, but now they specialize in outdoor adventure socks. That’s some serious sockage right there!
They’re made from Merino wool, which is apparently breathable in summer, insulating in winter, yet exceptionally soft and lightweight. All I know is that they feel *so* soft. I was worried they might be a little too warm indoors, but as the material breathes, my feet stay comfy when I come in from the cold.
Their sock store, The Great Canadian Sox Shop in Toronto, also carries other Canadian brands such as Good Luck Sock which I am all about!. Can I have these Toucan pairs in every shade please?
If you’re ever in Toronto, be sure to swing by!
Happy sockmas 🙂
