The X-Socks Evo Run socks are durable and feature a highly technical design. The double sock construction minimises the risk of getting blisters by dispersing any friction between the two layers of material rather than on your skin. Excellent support in the places where it's needed and medium levels of padding too so you can go very long distances, comfortably.
Inov8 says:EXTRAORDINARY PROTECTION FOR EXTRAORDINARY DISTANCES. For real distance runners: The Run Evolution Sock. Double-layer technology reduces the constant risk of blisters with long distances. The inner sock layer absorbs friction because it doesn't slide against the skin, but rather against the outer sock layer. At the same time it transports moisture to the outer layer.
Double Sock Construction: The mesh hose, lying close to the skin, functions as a spacer. It rapidly transmits moisture from the skin to the outer layer. This means that friction which is caused by feet movement within the shoe is absorbed between the two layers of socks. The risk of abrasion and blistering is radically reduced.
X-Sock's, Evo Run Socks are some of the best running socks out there. The design aspect alone is incredible. Supporting elastic where they know its neccessary and a second sock layer that has superb wicking properties and anti-blister capabilities. The technical design is supported by technical fabrics. The fabrics used give a highly durable sock that will work hard for you while you're out doing a ten-miler.

|Air Conditioning Channel||Conducts air away from the anatomically shaped footbed via the inside surface of the foot and thus ensures that moist,overheated air is pumped out of even tight fitting shoes with every movement.|
|Instep Protector||Reduces the risk of pressure points and chafing, and optimally ventilates the foot.|
|Toe Protector||Guards against blisters and chafing.|
|Toe Tip Protector||Asymmetrical impact-absorbing protectors made of hollow-core Robur™ fibers cushion and protect toes at the pressure-sensitive tips.|
|AirCool Stripes||Knit like a fine net of air permeable Mythlan™. This results in cooling ventilation on the soles of the feet.|
|Anatomically Shaped Footbed||For “L”-left and “R”-right foot with integrated AirConditioning Channel®.|
|Achilles Tendon Protector||Thanks to its highly abrasion-resistant and impact-absorbing material, the protector protects the Achilles tendons from pressure points and friction from the top of the shoe. The sensitive Achilles tendons aren't stressed because they are encased in the cushioning pod.|
|Self Adjusting Cuff||Adapts to any size leg without slipping or constricting.|
|X-Cross Bandage||The unique crossover ankle bands, knit of elastic materials, give stressed tendons, muscles and joints secure hold and stability without limiting freedom of movement.|
|AirFlow Ankle Pads||Ankle bones are often scraped up during falls since they jut out from the sides of the legs. The crescent-moon-shaped alignment of the pads offers the best possible protection without affecting the ventilation ability of the AirConditioning Channel®.|
|Heel Protector||Guards against pressure and friction.|
|Traverse Airflow Channel System||Regulates the temperature of the sole of the foot and conducts moist and overheated air into the AirConditioning Channel®.|
|Sock-in-a-sock System||Double protection against bruises and blisters.|
