The Overlander Performance Range took years to engineer and perfect

Determined to craft a range of socks designed to live, play and train in, we leveraged the best of nature and science to bring you the Overlander Performance Enhancement range.

This new range of men's and women's socks took us 3 years of meticulous design and development to bring to life and features 9 different socks styles.

Each sock is crafted for a specific activity, including hiking, snow sports, running, cycling, trekking and more (listed below).

Discover why you need performance enhancing socks made using revolutionary temperature-controlling Merino Advantage material.

Why Merino Advantage is the ultimate performance enhancing material

Merino Advantage is a light, soft, temperature-controlling, and sweat-repelling material made from fine Australian merino wool fibres. It’s easy to care for - fast drying, breathable and odour resistant.

Compared to traditional wool, Merino Wool doesn't have any cons; bulkiness, itchiness, heaviness, and taking forever to dry.

Plain wool socks can feel so scratchy on the feet, and the lower quality of the wool - the more uncomfortable it gets. And, unfortunately, no amount of fabric softener will save them.

Merino Advantage is the perfect solution. It is built with endurance in mind.

The Overlander Range of 9 Performance Enhancing Socks

1. Cycle Socks

Keep your feet protected and your legs turning in these specially designed Cycling Socks. Made using uniquely developed Merino Advantage, these Cycling Socks combine the best of nature and technology.

Here’s why you need a pair of Cycling Socks:

  • Carefully placed mesh zone and meshed arch support so feet stay breathing and aerated
  • Targeted padding on the heel and sole and seamless toe means extra thickness where cyclists need it most

3. No-show Lifestyle Socks

If you’re looking for an everyday sock that’s comfortable, durable, breathable *and* pairs perfectly under sneakers, the No-show Lifestyle Socks are a must-have. Like the Lifestyle crew-length socks, this style has the same seamless and cushioned features, just shorter.

  • Nought & Cross Arch System across the main area of the foot promotes healthy blood flow with light compression

We love how versatile Lifestyle Socks are, and thanks to the Merino Advantage insulation, they’ll keep feet warm in Winter and cool in Summer. Grab a pair in a black or light grey option.

  • No toe seam to reduce the chances of blisters
  • Extra padding on the heel and toe for ultimate comfort
  • Convenient ribbed zone to ensure movement is not restricted
  • It will help keep feet cozy in the cold and fresh in the sun thanks to the insulating nature of the merino wool material composition

5. Snow Socks

If you've got a snowboarding and skiing trip planned, remember to add a pair (or two) of Overlander Snow Socks to your bag. Merino Advantage is the ultimate frost-friendly material because of its warming and insulating properties.

What makes them *the* toughest performance socks for skiing and snowboarding?

  • They stay up thanks to the knee height and rib top band
  • Feature shin padding at the front to minimise the impact on fall
  • Low density zones do not restrict the feet movement
  • Ribbed arch support promotes healthy blood circulation
  • Anatomically designed foot bed to enhance your performance
  • High density ankle band provides stability to ankles when skiing and snowboarding

The thicker socks will keep you cozier for longer, and the wool socks are not 'too bulky' to wear under your snow gear. They come in a maroon and blue marle colour and include some fun geometric patterns to keep them exciting and funky.
