Instructions

Mouse over each portion of the sock on the left to discover the unique construction and features of Sierra Club socks.

Reciprocated Toe

Extra fabric is added into the toe area using a knitting technique known as reciprocation. This creates more room for the toes and adds extra comfort.

Lin-Toe Closure

Virtually seamless, our Lin-Toe closure is the smoothest, most comfortable toe seam you can buy. This mechanically-linked closure is seamless inside the sock as well as outside, since a single thread joins the two opposing fabric edges loop-for-loop, creating a single piece of fabric. This method also eliminates significant waste over conventional production, since much less fabric is used.

Sole

Our cushion sole socks include extra padding of "sandwiched terry" construction-a higher grade of fabric than found in most cushion sole socks. This provides superior comfort, moisture management and foot support.

Reciprocated Heel

A knitting technique known as reciprocation adds extra fabric into the heel area. During this process, the knitting machine oscillates, creating the reciprocated heel.

High Splice

To protect the back of the foot where it contacts the shoe, we add extra reinforcement. This also gives the sock greater durability.

Transfer

Where the leg transitions into the ankle, becoming smoother and not ribbed.

Knit Fabric

Different from woven fabrics, knit fabrics offer enhanced elasticity; we use it in our socks for increased breathability, comfort, fit and warmth.

Leg

The visible part of the sock, it is often seen between the shoe and the pant leg. Different legs are created for different uses, but all of our legs are focused on comfort, fit and style.

Rib

Most Sierra Club socks feature a "true rib," created using a dial machine where the sewing needles oppose each other, knitting a ridge right into the fabric. Simpler socks employ a "mock rib," which uses a rubber inlay to create the appearance of ribs.

Welt

The cuff of our sock features a double layer of fabric to improve its appearance and help keep it from sagging down.

Sock Technology

The creation of Sierra Club socks is a balanced combination of art and science, and our expert crafters weave comforting art and sophisticated science into every pair.
