281Z Military Boot Socks - Tactical Trekking Hiking - Outdoor Athletic Sport (Black)


  • NATURAL. 70% Organic Cotton, 25% Nylon, 5% Elastane with toe and heel reinforced by highly durable polyamide thread.
  • COMFORTABLE FIT. Bands on the foot and cuff provide tight fit and prevent sock from slipping and also provide slight compression effect to enchance bloodflow during long-term movement. Cushioning softens the stepping, improves airflow and prevents sweating of the foot, which provide maximum wearing comfort of 281Z socks.
  • ODOR CONTROL. Structure and composition of the socks' material help to avoid an unpleasant odor even with prolonged wearing. The socks' fiber composition and specially designed airflow channels maintain high level of breathability and thermoregulation, so your feet won't sweat, and if they do - the moisture will be quickly absorbed and removed and the odor will be ventilated from the foot.
  • EASY-CARE. Machine wash, permanent press: initial water temperature should not exceed 30C/80F. Special instructions: Drip dry. DO NOT: Bleach, Iron, Dry clean.
  • ECO-FRIENDLY. Materials meet the "STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX". Absence of banned colourants, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol, cadmium, nickel, and other harmful components.
  • VERSATILITY. Socks are designed for continuous use with demi-season and summer military boots, mountaineering boots, hiking boots, working footwear and another types of professional footwear.
  • FINEST YARN. Made from finest combed cotton. Combed cotton means that shorter fibres from the yarn are separated and remowed, making it stronger and softer to the the skin.

281Z Socks are designed in such a way that a large amount of sweat is absorbed by the sock, then it is equally
distributed over the entire area and evaporates to the outside under the influence of internal pressure inside
the footwear.
Zones of maximum sweating and wear of socks are reinforced with additional weave.
On top of the socks there are special "channels" for additional air circulation and heat exchange.
The combination of natural cotton, nylon and elastane create a balance between heat transfer properties and strength
characteristics of the socks.
Field socks are created by specialists of 281Z Development Group*. All materials which are used in the production of socks are NIR Compliant.
Made in Ukraine!

*281Z Development Group is a group of specialists in military gear that participated in the soldier's personal
equipment enchancement program of Ukrainian Armed Forces.
From 2016 to 2018 281Z Development Group cooperated with the popular Ukrainian military brand.
All products, that were developed by 281Z are thoroughly tested in field conditions and have proven their quality in combat.

The average height of the sock is about 13-14 inches. Depending on the size it can be slightly longer or shorter. The fit of
the sock heavily depends on you calf width - on the thin leg it can be nearly over-the-calf length.
Our socks are made of high quality materials that have high stretchability characteristics. Due to that socks may not feel tight
when new,but after some time and couple of washings the sock will "remember" the shape of your foot and will fit perfectly.
Please note that when you have boundary size (e.g. size 10) you can choose beetween sizes (e.g. beetween Small and Medium)
depending on your preferences. The smaller size will provide more tight, snug fit, while the larger size will provide freer fit.

First time ordering these brand, but they have a good reputation. I ordered the Men's medium black as I wear a size 12 shoe, and the fit was great. The heel fell in the right spot, an ok amount of cushion (not super squishy, if that's what you're looking for you'll need something else), and they come up to about 15" on my calf. They stayed stretchy after 6 hours of wear and were quite comfortable. Have not put them through a wash yet.

Comfort, fit, style, enjoyment.

I love these socks. I have ordered similar from an American company before. While the sole and foot from the American company were comfortable and nice, the rest of the sock was flimsy and ill constructed. The American socks did not last long.

Then I found 281Z. Love them. Can't get enough of them. Well worth the price. Buy them if you want some of the best socks. If I were in Ukraine once again? I'd be buying as many as possible and shipping them home.

excellent sock, feels good, light compression. helps feet not sweat as much, but like all heavy duty socks, summer can feel it, but over all very impressed & happy, I immediately order more after 1st day of wearing!

Some of the nicest and well-made socks I have ever worn. I primarily use these under my touring motorcycle boots but quickly started wearing them for everyday use. You won’t regret trying these wonderful socks!

Ordered men's mediums and got 2 packs of 4 pairs. Loved them, fit great and were definitely over the calf. Bought 2 more packs of 4 pairs men's and ALL of the socks are WAY shorter than the socks in my previous purchse. These cost way too much to have this consistency issue. The socks in the 2nd order do not stay up at all anf im yanking on them all day. Very frustrated. I'll change my review when I'm sent 8 new pairs of the longer length.

Nice padding. They stay up when wearing wellington boots. They breathe well. Ordered several pairs in black and green.

This was like wearing a dress sock not much better than that not very thick, granted I am a xl man but they felt like dress socks my foot slid in my boots which was uncomfortable and the boots only tighten so far and it continued to slide with each step.

I bought some green socks about a month ago. I loved how they fit over my calf so much that I ordered these black socks. They are about an inch shorter than my previous purchase and do not stay over my calf. I sent a question to the seller about the size change but never heard back from them. I would have returned them but had already washed half of them.
