Gear News: Cotopaxi teams up with Wigwam to make llama socks

For as much time as we spend within them, we don’t think about socks often enough. Which is why a company dedicated to making “gear for good” like Cotopaxi decided to team up with sock wizards at Wigwam to create a new sock built for the outdoors.

The Libre Socks are constructed using Cotopaxi’s llama fiber for comfort, breathability and durability. And they’ve got an Indiegogo campaign going on right now to kickoff the collab with Wigwam.

As they say in the IndieGoGo campaign, the Libre Socks are meant for “Hiking, camping, traveling, exploring, strolling, bowling, emailing, lounging … you get the idea. Versatility is the name of this sock game, as the Libre Socks specialize in being all-rounders with their adaptable llama blend.”

Coming in a variety of colors, they’re made in the U.S.A. and being offered in specially-priced packs for the campaign. Right now you can snag six pairs for $99, and get a free fanny pack thrown in. Set to retail at $24 per pair, that’s a pretty sizable deal on what we’re guessing will be some pretty comfy socks.

Cotoxpaxi is aiming to start shipping the Libre Socks in December, which means they could be on your feet just in time for winter.
