The shin reinforcement will stand up to vegetation.
'Friction Free' thread reduces blisters on the ball of the foot and heel.

Finally, a sock designed for orienteering!
If, like us, you like to get off the path to reach the control point a little faster, we have these running shoes designed for getting off the beaten track!
Run through fields of nettles with no fear!
You can race through hardy vegetation, such as ferns or nettles, without a second thought! When running through brambles, we recommend double protection with long Trail Running tights under your socks, or wearing orienteering gaiters. (Orienteering gaiters reference: 8514782)
How is an orienteering sock created?
A real running sock made with special 'Friction Free' thread at the ball of the foot and the heel, reducing the risk of blisters. The upper part of the sock is comfortable and hard-wearing with 4-thread weave over the tibia. The sock has extra hold under the knee to avoid it slipping down.
