At GSM Outfitters LLC, we’re always on the lookout for the very best in outdoor gear, and are committed to stocking only the finest products, ones that we’re confidently able to stand behind. This goes for everything, including the seemingly humble sock. When you’re hunting for outdoor equipment in Sevierville, TN, don’t forget about socks—they make a bigger difference than you might think!

Without a good pair of socks, a good pair of boots can still hurt your feet

Without a good pair of socks, your boots won’t fit as well and are more likely to chafe you over longer hikes, and your feet are more likely to steep in sweat and begin stink or even face fungal problems. Good socks help control moisture, provide padding and support to the right parts of your feet, ankle and shins, and help ensure a snug and comfortable fit in your boot, which makes it easier to keep your footing even on the most treacherous terrain.

More than just fashion, socks are outdoor equipment

All that is why we believe socks are way more than fashion—they’re essential equipment. As such, we’re strong believers in finding a pair of socks that really lasts. There are a number of sock brands that have, with their engineering know-how and personal touch, created rugged, comfortable, trail-worthy socks, but we here at GSM Outfitters LLC carry two in particular because we believe they are the very best—the most thoughtfully made, the most ethically sourced, the longest lasting—and both come with lifetime no-questions-asked guarantees, which lets us say to our customers, “You don’t have to take our word for it.” And that’s a fun thing to say!

  • Darn Tough: Made in Vermont and designed with an eye for comfort, it just so happens that these comfortable socks can withstand any terrain and temperature, and will last as long as you do.
