LEVEL OF PRACTICE
The component in the heel and toe is made of a polyamide thread twisted with a second PTFE-coated polyamide thread that reduces the risk of blisters. These socks cannot provide full protection from blisters. Blisters usually appear when our skin is weakened by friction caused by our socks, shoes or foreign bodies. Damp also plays an important role as it weakens the skin.
The heel and toe of the sock are made of a friction-free polyamide to reduce friction. The rest of the sock is made of a very fast-drying polyamide to reduce the sensation of wet feet. Specific padded areas, added thickness for added comfort. Highly ventilated woven areas increase perspiration wicking.
We have produced 3 heights of hiking socks. "Short" socks that reach over your shoes but remain under the ankle. The â€œmids" 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.
Our socks are available in 4 different shoe sizes (3/5.5, 6/8,8.5/11.5, 12, 14). 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 in the same colour.
Store your properly dried socks in a dark, dry place.
All our socks are laboratory and field-tested to validate the following: toxicology, UV resistance, resistance to wear, accelerated ageing and resistance to repeated washing. Users then check our socks in the field in the Mont Blanc valley.
