The meaning of the word safari is “journey” or “hunting expedition.” As with all unknown journeys there are always surprises for which we are not prepared. The Russell Pro-Staff, including numerous well known PH’s, working with America’s premier sock manufacturer, has developed a totally unique line of safari socks that covers the bases from extreme heat to cold temperatures. From strenuous walks covering 15 to 20 miles a day to lesser activity. From maximum to minimum footwear. Socks are one of the most important pieces of hunting gear you will buy, next to a great pair of custom fitted Russell boots or shoes, a flat shooting rifle and a good pair of binoculars...which is why we are happy to announce the arrival of the exclusive new Russell Safari Sock line. The Russell Safari Sock line has been under development for more than two years and has been widely tested. Some are made with a blend of the finest Merino Wool and polypropylene, nylon, elastic and lycra...some with polypropylene, nylon, elastic and lycra only. All are anti-microbial treated which means the socks actually fight bacteria and odor development. A side benefit of anti-microbial treatment is, if you find yourself having to wear the same socks more than one day between laundering, it can be done with no downside. No odor, no foot problems. We took our time to get this right.
