Product Description

  • Padded heel zone extends upwards to protect the Achilles tendon
  • Tear-drop shaped padded zone covers and protects the ankle bone
  • Upper mid-foot cushioning
  • Contoured big toe joint padding extends across the toes and under the ball of the foot to provide greater protection and comfort
  • Flat toe seam minimises rubbing
  • Arch bracing for additional support and custom fit

Getting the fit right sock fitting for a comfortable day’s hiking is essential:

  1. Choose the same size of sock as your foot. If you have narrow feet (D or less) or are on the border between sizes you should go down a size
  2. Cut product card barb with scissors to avoid damage to fabric.
  3. Pull on sock carefully to ensure the fitted heel and toe box sit on the foot correctly.
  4. Smooth out any wrinkles between the layers to ensure a snug, smooth fit, Lovely!

A little exercising and mobilising the feet and calf muscles goes a long way to avoid unnecessary problems and improves your strength and balance. These three exercises are simple and very effective:

  • Machine wash at 30 degrees
  • Do not tumble dry
