We Say – Iâ€™ve been wearing these Teko socks for four months in England and Canada. On a normal day out Iâ€™ll probably walk about 5-7 km, usually in a semi-urban setting and these socks have helped to make sure those walks are really comfortable, so much so thatÂ I now feel dissatisfied whenever I wear socks that aren’t made by Teko. Theyâ€™ve completely spoiled me!
Theyâ€™re soft and warm, yet so durable. Iâ€™ve never had a blister whilst wearing them even if I was wearing new/cheap shoes that are hard around the achilles tendon, which is where Iâ€™d usually get blisters.
They also take a long time to stink up so I can wear them for a week before they need a wash. I donâ€™t exercise in them or do anything too laborious except for just walking around the city parks or whilst at work (I’m on my feet in a shop all day) so that helpsÂ and itâ€™s also more economical and environmentally friendly to wash once a week if you can get away with doing so.
The socks have never slid down from my legs and bunched up at the toes like my other inferior socks do sometimes, they stay put at the heel and donâ€™t move during my daily activities. Tese socks would be really great for hiking for the reasons Iâ€™ve mentioned, long lasting without getting smelly and staying in place on your feet.
Weather wise, I did wear them on half day forest hikes in Canada during the end of winter when temperatures were between -20 degrees celsius to about 0 degrees, and paired with warm winter boots I feltÂ great; not at all cold.
In conclusion, I love these Teko socks, and all the other socks I’ve tried from their brand as well. Teko make their products from organic materials and theÂ advanced company ethics mean they have a smaller carbon footprint than most manufacturers. In our world of declining resources, these things really matter and I feel proud of wearing and supporting such a company.
These are comfy, reliable socks from a great, ethical company! Get some if possible, you wonâ€™t regret it!

We Say – I have been wearing these socks during last winter in London and the last winter that just passed in Toronto where temperatures ranged between the cities from 5 degrees to -40 degrees. I wore them on a few hikes during the height of winter (about -40 to -30) in Toronto and found them to be really suitable. My feet were kept warm during the four hours or so I was out each day, the socks didnâ€™t retain any moisture keeping my feet dry and there were no blisters or discomfort.
They wash well and retain their shape and size and I can wear them every day for a week without them getting stinky, so thatâ€™s good for me as itâ€™s less to wash and therefore good for my wallet and the environment. They stay on my feet without sliding away, as they have a firm grip around the feet and knees.
In terms of length, theyâ€™re not really knee-high, and Iâ€™m 5 foot 5 inches tall. Theyâ€™re high rise but Iâ€™d say they come up to about mid-calf for me. The thing I particularly like about Teko socks are that they are made from organic materials using environmentally friendly methods of farming and production. Iâ€™ve been trying to switch my life around completely regarding the products I use to have a better impact on the planet and Iâ€™m really glad I found these socks.
In conclusion, these high-rise Teko socks are comfortable, warm, have a strong hold, lasts almost a week without washing and very importantly, have a small carbon footprint which is a big thumbs up for me!
