The Greensboro 1/4 Crew combines the latest technology with the proven antibacterial benefits of 100% American merino wool, offering precise fit, support, and performance for all kinds of athletic pursuits in a rainbow of colour choices. The quarter-crew cut of this running, biking, and workout-ready sock helps diminish friction at the Achilles' tendon, while its low-profile cushioning absorbs impacts without affecting shoe volume.

U.S. Merino Wool
Merino wool is soft, itch-free, naturally odour- and bacteria-resistant, cool in the summer and warm in winter. We source our 100% U.S. grown merino wool exclusively from sheep raised by American farmers on American farms.
Hidden Nylon Plaiting
Advanced construction that sandwiches stretch yarns between two layers of body yarn, hidden nylon plaiting creates a smooth exterior and a low-profile fit that is ideal for technical and sport socks. A side benefit of this modern knitting technique is its ability to incorporate complex patterns, open-weave zones, and intricate designs for increased performance and extra style.
Bottom-of-Foot Cushion Zone
Found throughout our Sport collection and in some Hike models, bottom-of-foot cushioning adds shock-absorbing loop knit across the entire sole, from the toes to the heel. Cushioning here reduces impact from running and hiking, and the fitted instep won’t interfere with low-volume shoes.
Full-density cushioning features a terry knit loop on every interior stitch, providing better insulation, exceptional wicking, and increased protection against impact. Its faster moisture absorption keeps the skin dry and reduces friction, while its shock-absorbing nature enhances the performance of multi-sport and outdoor socks.
Seamless Toe Closure
Advanced knitting techniques create a totally flat connection in the toe box, reducing bulk and eliminating blister-generating friction.
Circumferential compression from the top of the sock through the arch creates a precise, comfortable fit that helps support the foot throughout the day.
Reinforced construction and low-stress seam placement reduce wear and tear, increasing the life of the sock.
