Farm to Feet

Appalachian Trail Collection

The Farm to Feet Appalachian Trail collection is now in stores just in time for the first hikers to begin their trip from Springer Mountain, GA, to Mount Katahdin, ME. The collection includes the Clingmans Dome, Max Patch, Damascus, and Harpers Ferry styles named after well-known sections of the longest hiking-only footpath in the world.

Farm to Feet developed the collection in collaboration with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) and will be giving a portion of sales from the Harpers Ferry to support the organization and its mission to preserve and manage the Appalachian Trail (A.T.).

"The A.T. is a cherished resource where not only lifelong memories and outdoor passions are built, but also where socks are put to the ultimate test," said David Petri, Farm to Feet's VP of marketing. "The trail passes within 100 miles of our home and we hope that our support of the ATC will ensure that it will be enjoyed by generations to come.

The Damascus has become the favorite sock of day and thru-hikers due to its light weight design, targeted cushioning comfort, and durability. The Damascus is knit with super soft 19-micron US merino yarn and features a seamless toe closure, micro channel circumferential ventilation, targeted hexagonal reinforcement in the heel and forefoot, and an enhanced Comfort Compression Fit featuring LYCRA® fiber. The Damascus is available in light and medium weight crew styles as well as lightweight quarter crew and low styles for men and women.

The Max Patch and Harpers Ferry feature the same foot design as the Damascus, but in a versatile 3/4 crew style with graphic details inspired by their name sakes.

Max Patch is a popular day hike destination on the A.T. due to its proximity to Asheville and its 360 degree views. The Farm to Feet Max Patch 3/4 crew sock features an infinite loop of mountain tops around the ankle, much like the view from Max Patch's grassy summit.

Historic Harpers Ferry, WV, sits at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers and is home to the ATC. The Harpers Ferry hiking sock features the A.T. logo in the calf area.

Along with being the highest point on the trail, Clingmans Dome is also the western terminus of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail that traverses North Carolina. The sock's design features a sunset design inspired by where last light hits the trail's highest point.

The Farm to Feet Appalachian Trail collection is available at leading outdoor stores nationwide and at www.farmtofeet.com.
