Product feature
  1. Limiting the risk of chafing
    In the heel and the tip, the component is a polyamide spun with a second thread of PTFE-coated polyamide that helps to reduce the risk of blisters forming. These socks cannot protect 100% from blisters. Blisters usually appear when our skin is weakened by chafing, caused by socks, shoes or foreign bodies. Damp also plays an important role as it weakens the skin.
  2. Characteristics of the threads
    The heel and toe of the sock are made from friction free polyamide to reduce rubbing. The rest of the sock is made from a fast drying polyamide to reduce the feeling of having sweaty feet. Specific loop areas are made thicker for greater comfort. Well ventilated knit zones to wick away seat.
  3. How to choose the height of your socks
    We have produced 3 heights of hiking socks. "Short" socks that reach over your shoes but remain under the ankle. The “mids" are slightly higher than your ankle to protect it. These 2 heights are designed to be worn with low shoes. "High" socks are ideal with hiking boots as they are slightly lower than the calf.
  4. Choosing your hiking sock size
    Our socks are available in 4 different shoe sizes (35/38, 39/42,43/46, 47,50). We use elastane in all our socks, so that they fit closely to your feet and remain in place. We all have feet of different lengths, proportions and sizes: to do this, it is important to try your hiking socks in the store before buying them. Also try out your socks before going on a long hike

    This model is sold in packs of 2 pairs of socks of the same colour.

    Bought these socks for hiking in trail runner trainers.I wanted something that was not too thick as I have sweaty feet but also needed something that would pad the area's most prone to soreness.So I put a pair on and walked 20 miles on a hot may day and was very impressed.I usually carry a spare pair to change into about half way after giving my feet a rest but this time I didn't bother.I rested my feet still but my socks were fine and so I wore them for the rest of the hike.
    I have odd shaped feet as well and have struggled to find socks that help , together with corrective insoles to give me support and comfort during my walks.For all the money I have spent on expensive socks over the years these are a great contender for someone wanting a shorter sock (I wear shorts when its warmer so wanted unobtrusive socks) I would definitely recommend them.
