Heads up backpackers. Next month, Keen will be unleashing what the company claims is one of the world’s longest-lasting socks—the Keen Olympus. Although the body of the sock is comfy, moisture-wicking merino wool, the toe and heel are reinforced with a patented super-tough nylon fiber (Keen claims the fiber is 15 times stronger than steel on a weight for weight basis). The best part: These socks will outlive you. Keen is so serious about its claims of indestructability, the Olympus will come with a lifetime guarantee.
In addition to its extreme durability, this sock boasts mesh venting detail, asymmetrical shaping for left- and right-specific fit, an articulated heel pocket, and a seamless toe.
The Olympus will be available in stores in March, with more color and height options coming out for Fall/ Winter 2013.
