The Finnish army boots socks are real good, but make them out of quality merino wool and they get even better! Just like our army issue socks, but a little better in every way. The natural moisture wicking properties of merino wool make these a viable option for around the year use.

  • A good sturdy boot sock
  • Terrycloth underside
  • 64 % merino wool, 36 % polyamide

Merino wool makes for a perfect base layer, to minimize chafing you can wear thinner socks under these, for example our standard merino socks. In cold weather conditions you could wear a pair of thicker socks over these. Layering socks makes life better, it minimizes chafing and if you've chosen your materials correctly (can't go wrong with wool) double layered socks will not feel uncomfortably hot or too damp even in hot weather.

The footbed side is terrycloth. This means the sock won't slide and wrinkle when worn.

Materials and care

Material 64 % merino wool, 36 % polyamide. Wash in 40 degrees Celsius. The polyamide is added to the mix for wear resistance, you can march countless miles before wearing these out. The sock shrinks about 10 % in the first wash. This is accounted for in the sizing

The joys of merino wool

Merino wool is moisture wicking, quick drying and self-rinsing. It's also machine-washable, but washing is usually unnecessary - wool cleans itself. Machine wash in 40 degrees celsius when needed. When not in use a good shake and airing outside will magically cleanse the wool. You only need to wash merino wool if you see stains or the clothing starts to smell really bad. This usually requires lots of continuous use without airing.

And oh yes, this stuff is mulesing free!

size info

- pistämätön yhdistelmä ns. hellesukkien kanssa; eniten käytetty intin m/05:n maiharin kanssa
- jalat jaksavat hyvin, eikä rakkojakaan tule
- kun vielä saisi niihin lykättyä nuo kalleimmat pohjallisenne, niin hyvä

Pirun kivat! Särmä TST Saapassukka + Särmä Merinosukka -kombo on korvannut Lorpenin sukat ainakin meikän vaelluskengissä. Nyt neljä viikon mittaista keikkaa on tullut heitettyä tällaisilla komboilla. Viikoksi on riittäyt hyvin kaksi paria kumpaakin sukkaa, yksillä pareillakin varmaan selviäisi kun sukat jaksaisi jossain välissä huuhdella. Yksi tähti pois saapassukkien pienestä huopumisesta.

My feet sweat like hell no matter what the weather so switching to these socks from cheap cotton ones was an amazing upgrade. I've been rotating a pair continuously for 2 weeks and so far no bad smells which is astounding considering my feet can normally be considered biological weapons after long hikes.

Very thick, comfortable - they don't itch ! and durable.
Some days, I even wear them as makeship slippers.
They are warm enough for my Northern French woodland winter hikes, and breathe well enough for me to play airsoft in the Portuguese summer heat without having my feet rotting in their own juice.
It is true, all you need to do after use is to roll them inside out, then air them out : they will be dry in about an hour and any smell will be gone.
I think I only washed them once in the year I have had them. Maybe I never did. They do smell healthy !

However, they are not magical : even though they do wick moisture out unlike cotton socks, and do not reek like synthetic ones, they will gather moisture overtime in any shoes.
Nothing beats these, not for this price anyway.

Excellent every day sock. I have many prs and have used them all this winter. I think I'll end up using them this summer too. They seem to hold up well so all in all much better than cotton sport socks.

Excellent. The thick bottoms and high wool content create a sock that is super versatile. These are thick enough you notice happy feet, but not so thick to require up sized footwear. Material was placed in the correct spots! I think these will be fine in the summer in boots, as they breath so well. Well below freezing you could put a sock over or under these just as easily too. 5 pair and counting, these are worth it.

Man, I did not think the under-sole cushioning would be this good! I highly recommend it if your shoe/boot allows the extra thickness.

Aluksi olivat hyvät sukat mutta jo varsin lyhyen käytön jälkeen kuluu ja alkaa pyörimään jaloissa. Minun toiset kohta jo puhki. Materiaali ei ole tarpeeksi kestävää, en tiedä johtuuko merinovillasta vai mistä. Intin saapassukat ovat paremmat, pysyy paremmin jalassa ja kestää.

General notes:
Very good fit even after wearing them multiple days because of the terrycloth.
Merino socks don't smell if aired out for a day or even overnight, so no need to pack more than 2 pairs for an extended trip.
Expect Finns to recognize them fondly as army socks.

Use:
In light leather boots during spring and autumn.
As outer socks over Särmä Merino Socks in high leather boots, also during the winter in Finland.
Instead of slippers in wood cabins or alpine huts, because they are quite robust.

I have had a few pairs of these for some time now, and ye gods let me tell you, there is nothing else like these. Since I was a young lad, I have always been hard on both shoes and socks, as I have a particularly heavy gait. I am never going to pass ninja school, I am afraid. Normal socks off the shelf are lucky to last a week or two, because of how hard on socks I am. And yet these ones not only have lasted several months now, they have done so without catching odours from my biological weapons of feet, and without much sign of wear at all. I am not going to buy another brand again, so long as Varusteleka keeps the quality of these ones up. sure, they are definitely more expensive than most you find at Wal-Mart or something, but you get what you are paying for with these ones. They seem pretty much bomb-proof.
