XLFeet makes available a wide variety of Extra Large Merino Wool Athletic socks for outdoor enthusiasts and for guys who just want a quality wool sock to wear around the house.  In the past, hikers, runners, hunters and mountain climbers alike have complained about socks that get wet, stay wet, bunch, slip and cause blisters. Every big foot can benefit from wearing merino wool socks, though.
 
With new technology being used in the construction of athletic footwear, finally hikers, hunters, runners, and mountain climbers with large and wide feet can sigh a breathe of relief.

Large size and big mens wool socks have always been known as a superior sock with inherent properties that really do a foot good.
 
Merino Wool Socks are made from merino wool, the finest wool used in high-end athletic footwear. This wool comes from the merino sheep. Originally from Alentejo, South Portugal, these sheep have been prized for their wool since the Middle Ages.  Woven wool garments have dated back thousands of years, but since the dawn of time, there have been guys with big feet who couldn't find large size wool socks for men that fit. Today, they finally can.

Throughout the years, numerous outdoor enthusiasts have complained about socks that would get wet, and stay wet. Merino Wool fibers quickly wick the moisture AWAY from your feet, WHERE IT SHOULD BE! The moisture then evaporates, LEAVING YOUR 2 BIG FEET DRY! Most every person who has ever climbed a mountain, or novice who has hiked up a steep hill, can remember an excursion that was ruined because they were wearing inferior athletic footwear.

Their socks got wet, they got sick, and then had to descend back to base camp, or go home in the case of the novice hiker.  How frustrating to know your colleagues reached the summit, but your socks held you back. Whether it's the Andes Mountains or Superior Hiking Trail, anybody who has embarked on a trek with merino wool socks would agree they would never switch back.
