When I went to Sapper School, I brought super cheap socks like an idiot, and I got really bad immersion foot. Later in my career, I went through Ranger and SFAS and I spent a TON of money on merino wool socks. My feet loved me for it but my bank account did not.
Basically what I am saying is you need to find a happy medium. These are a third of the cost of most high speed sock brands and will treat your feet just as well. Be mindful when you purchase socks because your feet are what get you through these courses.
These boot socks are made of a comfortable and breathable 92% Acrylic, 7% Nylon, and 1% Spandex material blend. The reinforced toe and heel give those areas extra strength and durability. The cushion shin and footbed gives you the need extra support for all day patrols through the woods. This blend is extremely durable and keeps your feet cool and dry even in the hottest of situations. If you are attending a winter class, we recommend not getting these because these won't keep your feet warm like a wool blend. Check out the socks here if you're going in the winter.
