Where Does Spring Take You?


Spring marks the starting point for sports teams, hiking events and triathlons across the country. Whether you want to get down and dirty in a Tough Mudder event or compete in intramurals, Wigwam has a sock designed to fuel your feat/feet.

Blazing a Spring Trail

It may be muddy from April showers, but spring is high season for hikers and backpackers. Looking to try something new? American Hiking has a springtime event schedule for all who crave rugged terrain. On the whole, hiking might be one of the most accessible outdoor endeavors around. There are trails for all abilities and it only requires a few key pieces of equipment. Wigwam Hiking Socks

When it comes to the outdoors, the piece of equipment you should never skimp on is socks. After all, your best asset on a hike is your feet! Enjoy the trail longer with Wigwam’s Hiking Outdoor Pro and Merino Trailblaze Pro socks, designed to keep out moisture and pad your feet for even the rockiest routes. Wigwam adventure athlete Payge McMahon can vouch. Last year she competed in a 167-mile, 7-day feat called the Grand to Grand Ultra wearing Wigwam socks!

Get Your Game Face On

Did you join a spring intramural team? From flag football, to soccer, to softball, these casual games can inspire fierce competition. Sport your matching jerseys proudly and make sure the rest of your gear has you outfitted to win. When impressing your coworkers or maintaining champion status is on the line, you don’t want to worry about adjusting your socks. Go for a classic Wigwam Tube Sock to dominate on the court or a low-cut ULTIMAX® style to fuel your sprint downfield.

Swim, Cycle, Run

For serious athletes, spring is synonymous with triathlon season.  Many of you have been training all winter and are taking the final steps to prep for race day.  Having the right footwear can make or break your performance, whether you’re working toward a sprint triathlon or a full IRONMAN®. Typical socks can wrinkle, slide down your heel, or cause blistering. Our IRONMAN® sock styles were designed to weather the transitions of the triathlon.  These lightweight sock styles eliminate moisture, prevent blisters, and will stay snug on your feet through the finish line.
