The DeFeet Cush features arch compression, padding in the toe box and forefoot, and a no-feel toe seam. The merino wool and Repreve® recycled fiber blend provides moisture wicking to prevent blisters, making the Cush ideal for both mountain and trail year round.

The DeFeet Story

Since 1992, DeFeet has been making socks backwards for enhanced durability, strength, and comfort. Pro cyclists took notice of the improved design and asked for customized socks; DeFeet answered with custom Aireators.

When many knitting businesses moved production overseas, DeFeet determined to maintain a local supply chain. Our merino wool comes from happy sheep in the Rocky Mountains and is washed and dyed in North America. Our Eco-blend comes from eastern North Carolina, where Repreve® yarn is manufactured from recycled plastic bottles.

As we look ahead we ask, what else can we do backwards to move forwards?
