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.

    Socks ok. Comfortable but I still got blisters despite well worm boots. These socks claim to reduce blisters

    Used for 1 week or less
    Used socks on a climbing trip to Swizerland. Every time I used them I found they generated too much friction and heat causing blisters. Have warn them cycling since, and found the same. Very dissapointed. Not up to my expectation of Quechua usual very high standards. Material felt and behaved like a cheap pair of man made fibre football type socks.
  • Comfy socks
