Särmä TST Boot Socks, Merino Wool

Price 15.99 USD excluding VAT

The Finnish army boots socks are excellent 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.

The Finnish army boots socks are excellent 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
  • 23.5 micron

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. 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 terry cloth. This means the sock won't slide and wrinkle when worn.

Materials and care

Material 64% merino wool, 36% polyamide. Wash at 40° C / 104° F. The polyamide is added to the mix to 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 at 40° C / 104° F. when needed. Don't leave them in a wet lump after washing. Reshape them gently while still damp. 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!

Made in Finland.

Want to know where the merino wool comes from?

Our sock provider Sukkamestarit has joined the NATIVA™system, the purpose of which is to be able to trace the merino wool back to individual sheep farms. Because of this, you will also be able to find out where the wool for all our merino wool Särmä socks comes from.

Starting from August 2020, the packages of new Särmä socks will have a QR code that you can use to trace the merino wool source. This will also raise the prices of the socks a bit, but it is a tiny thing in comparison to how cool this transparency is!

- 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.

Decent socks, slightly cheaper than comparable products elsewhere. Have bought twice without issues.

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.

I have used a few pairs of these for about a year now and overall I like them. They have a lot of PROs and a few CONs. On the PRO side, they are wool (mostly) so they are warm odor free. These are a year old so obviously they are durable (they are partly synthetic). So, they are good socks. The cons. They are called boot socks but they are too short. They need to be taller to get to the top of the boots. They fall down. Maybe you don't mind this but it drives me crazy when the sock ends up all bunched up at my heal. They are ugly.
Tip: Take three pair traveling. I was in Finland for a month and didn't have to wash socks. I just wore a pair for one day and aired it for two days while I wore the other two pairs.
Good stuff but could be better.
