If you're like me, you like socks to extend up as high as your boots. And if you're wearing western boots, you need a pretty long sock! Well, the Darn Tough Westerner is just that: a long, over-the-calf sock that will keep your boots from chafing your calves. The merino wool/nylon blend is great for wicking away moisture, and the light cushion is comfortable without being thick. The result: a sock you can wear in all kinds of weather.
