Limits irritationSpecial fibre to reduce chafing at the heel and toe of the foot.
Abrasion resistanceMulti-strand polyamide fibre for increased durability.
Anatomic design100% Spandex weft to adapt to all shapes of feet.
Reduced risk of chafing
At the heel and toe, a polyamide component mixed with a second PTFE-coated polyamide thread is used to reduce the rubbing that causes blisters. Under no circumstances, however, can the socks offer 100% protection from blisters. Blisters usually appear when your skin is weakened by chafing, generally caused by socks, shoes, or foreign bodies. Moisture also plays an important role because it weakens your skin.
Characteristics of the yarn
The heel and toe of the sock are made of a Friction-free polyamide to help reduce rubbing. The rest of the sock is made of a very quick-drying polyamide to stop your feet from feeling wet. The terry-loop sections offer added thickness for extra comfort. Ventilated woven sections to help wick away perspiration.
Choosing the height of your socks
We offer 3 sock heights for hiking. "Short", which are slightly higher than the shoe but still under your ankle bone. "Mid", which protect your ankle bones by stopping just above them. These 2 heights are designed to be worn with low-top shoes. "High", which are perfect for the use of high-top hiking boots stopping just below the calf.
Choosing the right sized hiking sock for you
Each of our sock sizes fits 4 shoes sizes (EU 35/38, 39/42, 43/46, 47/50). The elastic properties of the spandex fibre used in all our socks helps them adjust to your foot and stay in place. We all have different feet in terms of length, proportion, and size: it is important to try your hiking socks on in store before buying them. Also try your socks in use before leaving for a long hike
