Wool Blend Athletic Crew Sox, contains 65% wool, 35% stretch nylon.


Made in the USA by Fox River Mills, Iowa, Since 1900. Socks are Style 1177.


We have a few dozen pair of utterly New Fox River Athletic Wool Blend Socks with Tags, in original plastic bag packaging.



Thick Wool Socks The Way They Used To Be Made


These are "old school" gym socks, like we wore in the 1950s and 1960s, and that are almost impossible to find anymore. If you compare them to current Wigwam socks, these have twice as much material in them as Wigwam, and last a lot longer. Years longer! We used to wear Wigwam, but they became thinner 20 years ago, and luckily we discovered Fox River! (Forty years ago Wigwam made great socks like these, and had a style that was wool blend dress socks, in dark colors, and we still use a few pair when we have to look civilized!)


Wear Them Everyday for Work and Play


We have been wearing wool athletic sox all our lives, since high school gym. The Boy Scouts told us that wool socks are the best because they stay warm when they are wet, and provide great cushioning.  Wear them with your sneakers, Reeboks, Nikes or Addidas, or even with sandals. They can also can be worn as an inner sock along with heavy boot socks, when wearing heavy rubber boots or leather boots as in construction, hunting, fishing, mountain climbing. I even wore these under my combat boots in the Army!


How to Wash and Dry


These wool blend socks can be washed with your whites in the laundry, and it's best to let them air dry, do not put them in a hot dryer.  They can be dried in a dryer that is set on low heat or air only.



Extra Large Size, Mens 12-15

Notice that these are the hard to find size XL, Extra Large Size, for shoe sizes 12 - 14 1/2 or 15. We do not have smaller sizes.


If your standard size socks are 9-12 but you find your wool socks are shrinking too much, get these and shrink them down to what length you need!


Made in 2011

As these wool athletic socks were almost impossible to find in stores and on-line even ten years ago, we bought them direct from the factory for personal use in the 1990s and 2000s. Most of these socks are label dated 2011. All are in original packaging with original Fox River Tags.



Postage.

We ship socks by US Post Office Priority Mail only, PO Boxes are okay. We do not use UPS, and do not use tracking. The Postage Fee of $7 is for one to 4 pair of socks, for six pair it may be between $7 and $15. Our website may show a higher fee, but we will adjust that to the correct rate before charging your card. If you pay by paypal we will refund excess postage. If you order other items such as books on your order, again we will calculate the lowest rate we can.
