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 tip of the socks are made from Friction free polyamide to reduce chafing. The rest of the socks are made from polyamide that dries very quickly to limit the damp foot feeling. Specific plush loop, thicker for more comfort. Very loose weave to increase wicking away of perspiration.
  3. How to choose the height of your socks.
    We have produced 3 heights of hiking socks. "SHORT", which are slightly higher than your shorts but below your ankle. "MID", which are slightly higher than your ankle, to protect it. These two heights are designed to be worn with low shoes. "HIGH", which are ideal for high hiking shoes, and end just below your calf.
  4. Choosing your hiking sock size.
    Each one of our sock sizes covers 4 shoe sizes (3/5, 6/8, 8.5/11, 12/14). We use elasthane in all our socks, so that they fit closely to your feet and remain in place. We all have different feet lengths, proportions and volume, that is why it is important to try on your hiking shoes in store before buying them. Try out your socks before going on a long hike
  5. Pack of 2 pairs
    This model is sold in packs of 2 pairs of socks of the same colour.

  • Good well padded socks

    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.
