Comfort is key, right? No truer statement has been made about travel clothing and gear. If you’ve ever gotten off a long flight with swollen calves or nursed blisters after a long day exploring a new place, you know that quality socks are an essential building block for an enjoyable trip. We heard you loud and clear and went on the hunt for the best travel socks.
That’s when we discovered Bombas. Bombas launched in 2013 with the goal of providing the most comfortable socks on the market. Since then, they’ve expanded into basic clothing as well, but their socks are still the shining star. The best part? Right now, Bombas is offering 20% off for first-time buyers, free shipping on orders over $50, and up to 15% off multipacks.
Whether your trip will be spent walking all around a new city, hiking in the woods, or skiing, or you simply want a quality compression sock to enhance blood flow and avoid swelling during long travel times, we tried them all. Find our best Bombas socks recommendations below.
Best Walking And Running Socks
These walking and running ankle socks have over 6,000 5-star reviews and it’s easy to see why! They are lightweight, built with strategic cushioning to protect the most vulnerable parts of your feet, and feature Bombas’ Hex Tec design for optimal moisture-wicking and breathable support. Snag this 6-pack before your next travel adventure, pair them with your favorite walking shoes, and start exploring.

Do you prefer to run or walk in a taller sock? Bombas has those, too! These quarter ankle socks are engineered with a sure-fit cuff to ensure they won’t get loose and slide down into your shoes, no matter how many miles you’re traveling. The Merino Wool makes these socks especially soft and breathable and helps keep your feet dry all day long.

Best Hiking Socks
These calf hiking socks are specifically designed for maximum hiking comfort. The socks use Hex Tec technology, which helps ventilate and regulate your feet’s temperature no matter what the outside temperature is. Combined with the moisture-wicking fabric blend, your feet (and calves!) will stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and dry year-round. Both the foot and leg portions are cushioned for optimal protection.

If you prefer a quarter sock to a calf sock, Bombas has you covered! These cheerful socks are made of repurposed moisture-wicking Merino Wool, nylon, and elastane to keep your feet comfortably supported and dry on the trails. If you choose this 3-pack, be prepared to be surprised by the colors! Since the Merino Wool is recycled from leftover materials, each sock design is perfectly unique.
How cute is this bundle? This set includes a 3-pack of the bright calf-style Bombas x Cotopaxi Merino Wool Hiking Socks and a handy nylon fanny pack to house your hiking basics. Like the socks, every bag is made from recycled leftovers, so each color combination is a surprise.
Best Skiing And Snowboarding Socks

Best Compression Socks
The Performance Compression Socks provide firm compression support (20-30mmHg) to increase blood flow in your calves. These socks are perfect for those who prefer a tighter-fitting, snug sock. The firm compression level is optimal for high-energy athletic activities, like pickleball or biking, so if you’re simply looking for socks to lessen swelling during long trips, check out the option below.
If you’re sold on this firm-compression sock but want to see other color options and sizes, the men’s styles can be found here.
The Everyday Compression Socks are perfect if you like a supportive sock but don’t want to feel too constricted. The mild compression level helps relieve minor swelling and prevent fatigued legs after long travel periods of sitting in a plane or car. Like their firmer counterpart above, these socks feature honeycomb arch support, added cushioning, and a seamless toe.
For smaller sizes and more color options, check out the Women’s Everyday Compression Socks 3-Pack (15-20mmHg) here.

Our Bombas Socks Reviews
“I was introduced to Bombas by my father-in-law, who appreciated the buy-one, give-one mission and also that he could shop for all of his kids and grandkids at the same time. I now have so many pairs of Bombas that I’ve eliminated all of the other pairs of socks I owned. Other socks would get scratchy or start to wear thin after multiple wears and washes, but my Bombas have held up for a long, long time. As a frequent walker and occasional runner I really appreciate that they never slip or bunch up in my tennis shoes. I’ve also added some longer, thicker pairs I’ve used for skiing and hiking and they keep my feet warm and comfortable through those activities and hold up in weather of all types.” —Erika Leonard, COO
“I had been looking for true no-show socks for some time when I found Bombas. After ordering other pairs that claimed to be no-show but weren’t, I was becoming skeptical that they actually existed. The Bombas were more than I wanted to pay for socks, but I tried them anyway and they were perfect! They’re a good quality and after long days of walking through Italy and Paris, I can tell you that they don’t slip and are very comfortable. They’re now my go-to no-show sock.” —Missy Glassmaker, SVP
“My wife purchased the men’s no-show socks for me and they have been the best gift. What I like most is that they are truly no-show socks. It often seems like most no-show brands still show a significant amount above your shoe. This makes it difficult to wear with a nice pair of dress shoes. I often get asked if I’m wearing socks when I wear my Bombas.
Just as important, Bombas socks are very soft and comfortable to stand around in all day, or even while lounging around shoeless. The rubber in the heel helps keep them in place. They made our recent trip to Italy much more enjoyable, as I didn’t have to worry about sore or blistered feet the entire time!” —Will Becker, Husband of Missy Glassmaker, SVP
