Mens Merino Work Socks

Socks for Tradesman, Firefighters & Cold Storage Workers

Wilderness Wear has been manufacturing socks in Melbourne since 1989. Our 30+ years of knowledge means we know a thing or two about manufacturing high quality socks that are built to last. Whilst Wilderness Wear is known for producing hiking socks, we also manufacture a range of industrial specific merino wool socks for Australia’s workforce.

Merino Beast2 – Available in Hi-Viz 

The Wilderness Wear men’s Beast2 socks are tough and durable with solid nylon ‘reo’ through the heel and toe sections. Eco-friendly high grade Merino wool keeps feet warm and dry during difficult conditions and right through the day. There’s no chance of heel slip thanks to the Wilderness Wear SFS and the firm fit weave from top to tip keeps feet comfortable no matter what the job. Flame and static resistance also feature large in the Beast2. Available in high viz orange and yellow.

Fire Rated 800 Merino Socks – Featuring 93% Merino Wool 

The Wilderness Wear Fire Rated 800 socks have been designed using a unique 3 layer construction method. In most socks the wool and nylon yarns are drawn in at the same time and are spread throughout the inner and outer sections of the sock. Our sock technicians re-engineered our specialised knitting machines, so that the treated wool is knitted on the outer sock section, a nylon mesh panel in the middle and pure wool knitted in a deep, terry construction throughout the sock inner. The upper welt section is a 1×1 rib construction which helps reduce calf pressure. Ideal for fire fighting, emergency services, welding, electricity & gas workers, car racing, smelting industries and applications where extreme heat, fire, sparks, or molten metal are involved.

Frost Free Socks – Designed for Australia’s Cold Storage Workforce

Wilderness Wear’s Frost-Free socks have been developed specifically for cold storage/freezer workers & ocean racing sailors and is an ideal sock for anyone wearing gumboot style footwear. Features include Exemplary thermal properties, High moisture wicking, fast dry, rapid climate adjustment, low odour, ultra durability & soft handle.

Long-standing and popular yarns, merino wool and schoeller polypropylene, have separately dominated the high end of technical thermal wear. Throughout the world with their superior performance abilities and comfort traits. Merino enables insulation in the cold (even when wet), maintains odour-free stability even after many days of constant wear and provides an ultra-soft touch to skin. Polypropylene is a highly engineered synthetic fibre that provides extraordinary insulation during physical exertion and wicks moisture away from skin due to its zero moisture retention capability, therefore keeping a person warm and dry during aerobic activity. The Frost-Free socks combine the nature-made and man-made yarns together to form a hybrid sock that enables the best of both worlds.
