Ordinarily giving your dad a pair of socks for Father’s Day might feel like passive-aggressive revenge for making you mow the lawn all those years. But socks that will turn heads when he walks into his local CrossFit gym? That’s as legit as it gets. This past April, Swiftwick launched the world’s first cross-training sock, the Flite XT. The sock is by far the most technical sock on the market—an unusual fiber called olefin makes it incredibly durable, sustainable, and sweat-wicking (read: no blisters). It also has strong elastic around the ankle to offer targeted support during quick lateral moves, and flex channels in the forefoot to improve range of motion and moisture control. Another cool thing: Grip Dry Fiber, which actually grips the inside of your shoe with nano treads to provide better traction. It’s also 100% made in the USA. $19.99-$23.99
For Dads who fish, Hobie’s latest fishing kayak, The Mirage Compass, suits the novice and the expert angler. Hobie created the pedal-drive system for kayak fishing and it remains the best in the field. The Compass comes ready to build out with any kayak fishing accessory from Hobie—from fish coolers to the bait tanks to a transducer. At under $2,000, it’s the perfect entry into kayak fishing without sacrificing the quality Hobie is known for. Reverse pedal drive adds deftness on the water. $1949
