Best. Socks. Ever.
No self-respecting Westerner wants hiking socks with heels that turn to cheesecloth after a season or two. Founded by Coloradans
Peter and Patty Duke (who created SmartWool in 1994), Point6 makes merino wool socks that are improbably durable, with compact-spun
yarns that refuse to pill—even after years of hiking, biking, and market-going. Hiking Tech socks, $17; point6.com
