Do not send your kid out with cheap cotton socks if you want them to like hiking. What really distinguishes this merino wool pair is how well they’ve held up through about 25 wash/dry cycles (credit the 31 percent nylon). They haven’t shrunk a bit, show minimal pilling or wear, and have maintained their cushion after thousands of sock-footed steps around the house and camp.
