Socks to Keep You Cool for Summer Hikes

As the month of August ends, we enter September,  and everyone is gearing up for school, cooler weather, and everything that comes with the change of seasons, here at GoBros, we’re trying to hang on to every bit of summer we have left! We’ve all enjoyed hikes up mountains, floats down the rivers in kayaks, and savoring moments with our friends and family.

But wait! Let’s not give in yet to pants, sweaters, and layers upon layers of clothing. (Maybe it doesn’t snow where you live, but we’re in Minnesota; it gets cold up here!)

We want to enjoy all the long, hot days we have left.
We want to take that last weekend trip.
We want to make more memories.

If you have found yourself hiking some awesome local trails this summer (Check out, enter your location, and find the best local hikes), your feet have either thanked you for the great socks and shoes, or you could be on the opposite side, wishing you had thought of your feet first. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite hiking socks. Whether you like a lot of cushion or a little, we have some options.
