RUNNING HIKING NATURE HIKING
LEVEL OF PRACTICE
This model is sold in a pack of 2 pairs of socks of identical colours.
The sole of the sock is made of combed cotton. Combed cotton is made from much longer, silky-looking fibres that intertwine better. The result is a much brighter appearance, a softer feel, more stability when washed and greater durability. The top of the foot and the heel are made of Polyamide for breathability and resistance.
Many different factors cause blisters during hikes: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a shoe size that is too small or too big, etc. It is therefore important choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your hiking shoes.
You need to choose the right sock size for your foot to avoid any additional creasing: either because the sock is too big and therefore there is too much fabric around your foot, or because the sock is too small and is pulled towards the inside of the shoe. We take advantage of elastane's excellent qualities so that our socks fit well to your foot and stay in place. It is important that you try your socks out before you go hiking.
Moisture must be effectively managed when hiking: We sweat, it’s bound to happen. If your boot is breathable, it will eliminate the moisture of your perspiration: so you also have to choose a light and breathable sock If your shoe is largely waterproof, to protect you from the humidity of the rain, you will not make the same selection: it is preferable to buy socks that will absorb perspiration, to keep the moisture as far away as possible from your foot.
We offer 3 sock lengths in this style: "Low": they slightly protrude from the shoe, but remain below your ankle bone. They are worn with low-top shoes. "Mid": they protect your ankle bones, stopping just above them: they are worn with low-top shoes. "High": they are ideal for mid-height hiking shoes, as they stop just below the calf and protect your ankle well from the shoe.
They are ideal with the NH500 shoes: the NH500 mid socks actually contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a reverse terry-knit construction under the sock that wicks moisture away from your foot. Finally they are high enough to protect your ankle from the shoe. It is an excellent combination to reduce the chance of blisters.

All our socks are tested in the lab and in the field to ensure the following: toxicology, UV resistance, resistance to wear, accelerated ageing and resistance to repeated washing. It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up and designed the Quechua products. We walk on as many footpaths as possible, in all weathers, with other hikers, to be certain of their comfort and resistance
