Remember when french fries were actually made with real potatoes and socks were built to last? The Hojo is a real sock for real skiers and riders looking for Light quality and performance. Its Over-The-Calf height is ideal for skiing and riding in deep conditions while Ultra-Light Merino Wool provides legendary warmth without the bulk. And since Merino Wool is naturally antimicrobial this sock repels bacteria and odor. If only everything in life was this simple. Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life.
