    Details
    Product feature
    1. Restricted risk of irritation
      In the heel and the tip of the toes, the component is twisted polyamide with a second polyamide yarn coated with PTFE which reduces the rubbing that causes blisters. In any case, these socks can’t protect you entirely against blisters. Blisters generally appear when the skin is weakened by rubbing, caused by socks, shoes or other items. Humidity also plays an important role as it weakens our skin.
    2. Properties of the yarn
      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. Choose the correct length of socks
      We offer 3 lengths of socks for hiking. The “short” version is just visible in the shoe but gets to just under your ankles. The “medium” version comes to just over your ankles. These 2 types are ideal for low shoes. The "high" ones are perfect for hiking shoes, stopping just below the calf.
    4. Choose the right size of hiking sock
      Our socks are available in 4 different shoe sizes (35/38, 39/42,43/46, 47,50). The elastane present in all our socks prevents the socks from moving or slipping off your feet and allows the sock to fit any shape of foot. We are all of the different feet; the length, proportion and volume: make sure you try the hiking socks on in the shop before you buy. Also try out your socks before wearing them on a long hike

      I used for Govind Ghat to Ghangaria and back, Valley of Flowers and Hemkund. I feel that it was due to these socks that I did not get blisters. The socks have protective padding and strong fibers where required.
    • Too tight for size 11

      Comfy/good except that they are rather tight for a size 11 - so if 10.5/11+ I'd consider skipping these.

      I've had numerous socks from Decathalon which have been fine (Forclaz 100 are the comfiest socks I own) so it seems limited to this range.

      These are all synthetic so feel a bit hard under foot. I prefer a sock with a bit of wool or cotton as the natural fibres provide a bit of comfort. These feel a bit like knitted fishing line. They also have a seam that runs under the front of the toes, so I cannot see how that does not rub. I have not worn these for more than 6 miles and I do not think I would be able to wear them for a full day without a blister. It was a pleasure to take these off and put on a pair of cheap cotton mix socks for the rest of the hike.
