Each pair of East German wool socks is an authentic East German military surplus item. Soldiers need warm feet too, which is where the design for these socks came from. The socks were originally designed for and used by members of the Nationale Volksarmee, otherwise known as the "National People's Army" of the German Democratic Republic, commonly known as East Germany.
East German Wool Socks
Despite being military surplus, each pair of socks is a brand new, unissued pair of socks that is free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that are characteristic of previously issued surplus items. These socks are not far from the end of their service lives, they have not even begun their service lives, which make them an excellent choice for winter wear.
These East German wool socks are all constructed entirely of wool, serving to provide warmth through the cold winter months. They will keep both your feet and your calves warm as these full-length tube socks feature a deep gray color and are built to last.
