Little things matter

For more than 100 years, Bridgedale has been making outdoor socks. They share with Wilderness what is that sets them apart.

At Bridgedale we believe it’s the little things that make the biggest difference to our lives. It’s the little things that put a smile on our faces and a spring in our step. It’s the little things that come together to make big things happen. 

For over a century our socks have been one of the little things that transform your journey every day. Our passion, experience, and care for every tiny detail, from our fit, our Fusion Technology and our guarantee, have helped us create the most comfortable and enduring socks. Little by little. Step by step. We’re changing the world beneath your feet.

From mountain tops to weekend walks we have socks that will keep your toes warm, comfortable and blister-free. As well as waterproof socks, we have socks for walking, hiking, trekking, mountaineering, trail running and everyday styles.

Knitting socks in Newtonards in Northern Ireland, since the First World War when the first army socks were made, we’ve earned the trust of millions of customers around the world. The strong heritage in hosiery is a feature of the brand and several of our team have been working for Bridgedale for more than 40 years. You could say we know our socks! 

We set out to design and manufacture the most comfortable socks that are available, using the latest machinery, the most progressive designs and the most advanced yarn technology.

Every single Bridgedale is passed through a series of inspection processes and at the packing stage is hand-inspected. This commitment to quality is at the heart of everything we do.

We’re also committed to the highest standards of animal welfare and we only buy wool from suppliers who commit to stringent International Wool Textile Organisation guidelines.

Bridgedale. Little things matter.

Three things that set Bridgedale apart

Fit: the construction of every Bridgedale is the secret to the perfect fit which ensures your socks feel like new after every wash.

Fusion Tech: the unique blend of yarn and knitting technology that sets Bridgedale apart from our competitors.

Guarantee: a badge of confidence that we have designed, developed, tested and manufactured products worthy of our brand name.
