The Damascus hiking socks are incredibly durable, soft and breathable socks that pay homage to the small Southwest Virginia town of Damascus, best known for hosting an annual celebration of the Appalachian Trail.

This collection of technical hiking socks are part of the Farm to Feet brand, which set out to celebrate the people and the town of Damascus. The socks' cardboard packaging features photographs of Appalachian Trail Days event organizers as well as town officials.

These hiking socks are completely U.S.-sourced and constructed, with the wool drawn from local sheep farms. This approach allows consumers to support the local economy whilst knowing that the product that they wear is designed for the local outdoor environment.
