Keep it Cozy with These Seven Warmest Winter Socks

Though many may gripe about the cold weather days of winter and fall, there’s no denying the chill allows us to rock some pretty comfortable clothing. Knit scarves, leather gloves, and roomy sweaters abound in these seasons, insulating us from the elements, but also making us feel oh-so-cozy.

There’s seemingly no end to the warm accessories we get to choose from, but one of our favorites is the winter sock. Durable and plush, this cold weather must-have is as essential for roosting around an indoor fire as it is for trudging along the frozen trails of a mountainside hike.

But don’t get it twisted — not all socks fit the bill, which is why we’ve assembled some of the warmest winter socks around.
