Technical Information

1
Limiting the risk of chafing
In the heel and the tip, the component is a polyamide spun with a second thread of PTFE-coated polyamide that helps to reduce the risk of blisters forming. These socks cannot protect 100% from blisters. Blisters usually appear when our skin is weakened by chafing, caused by socks, shoes or foreign bodies. Damp also plays an important role as it weakens the skin.
2
Characteristics of the threads
The heel and toe of the sock are made from friction free polyamide to reduce rubbing. The rest of the sock is made from a fast drying polyamide to reduce the feeling of having sweaty feet. Specific loop areas are made thicker for greater comfort. Well ventilated knit zones to wick away seat.

How to choose the height of your socks
We have produced 3 heights of hiking socks. "Short" socks that reach over your shoes but remain under the ankle. "MID", which 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.
4
Choosing your hiking sock size
Our socks are available in 4 different shoe sizes (35/38, 39/42,43/46, 47,50). 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

BEST SOCKS EVER!!!!!!
Used for 7 to 12 months
I grabbed some of these while in Spain last year. Before leaving I grabbed two more pairs. They are the best running socks I have owned...EVER! I know they say hiking.....but the are perfect for running. They don't look like wearing out at all.
I thought I was going to have to wait for another couple of years to get more until I found Decathlon has an online store in Australia. Free shipping over $50, quality product, very cheap prices compared to the extortion I'm used to here.
Can't wait to retire in Spain..................

Great socks to replace worn out Bridgedale walking socks. I use these every day on the 8km school walk with my boys, dead comfy socks and the only drawback is that I'm a size 9 which means that Decathlon socks are either too long or too short due to their sizing. These are too long but fit nice and tightly around the arch of the foot and have excellent toe padding to prevent any rubbing.
Tight fit and cushioning at the toes
