J.B.Field's Socks


Performance • Protection • Comfort • Value

J.B. Field’s® was founded in 1877 to make socks for the Canadian logging industry. As with several old-line Canadian companies, including Stanfield's, they prospered supplying the Hudson’s Bay Company with reliable, practical products, suited to the demanding conditions of Canada’s extractive industries: logging, fishing, mining and farming. Today they are in the forefront in modern sock manufacture.

Features of SuperWool Hiker

Design and manufacture of socks has advanced rapidly in the past few years, and J.B. Field’s has been a leader in this advancement. Development of computer controlled sock machines now makes it possible to knit a sock with a specific yarn and stitch selected for each part of the sock. For example, the inner layer may be a cushioning terry knit, varying between a high density on the sole for maximum cushioning to a low density on the leg for comfort. The inner surface of the sock may be a soft long staple merino wool, for comfort and moisture control, and the outer surface a wool-nylon mix for wear resistance. Heel and toe and the section underneath the lacing of the boot can be additionally reinforced for wear. The ankle and arch may be supported by elastic for comfort and to ensure the sock stays in place.

Good design requires a good understanding of yarns and their properties, and of the nature of socks in use. This understanding comes from extensive laboratory tests of yarns and of knitted fabrics, and field testing of socks. J.B. Field’s socks are made with the right yarn in the right place, with the right knit, for each specific sock and its use.

Sock Sizing
Numerical sock sizes are given as the length of the foot in inches. This length does not correlate precisely with shoe size, as the fit depends on both the stretch of the sock and width of the foot. J.B. Field's wool socks are made to stretch and adapt readily. If you are at the top of the range for a size, and your foot is wide, take the next size up. If you are at the bottom of the range for a size, and your foot is narrow, take the next size down.
