Haven’t replaced your collection of performance socks since college? It’s a great time to invest in some new pairs. Low-cut options make comfy walking and running socks, especially when they have cushioned heel tabs like the ones below. Merino wool is an ideal material for hiking socks, since it has anti-odor properties and impressive moisture control. And some of these pairs even have built-in arch support and grippy soles that are great for yoga and Pilates.
