Designed for demanding hiking on and off the beaten track. The X-Socks Outdoor range perfectly compliments the functionality of a sports trekking shoe or ankle-length mountain boot. While the X-Cross Bandage Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector and toe guards protect the feet from injury a climate control system makes sure feet remain dry and comfortable.
With each step the Traverse Airflow Channels pump moisture from the sole of the foot out of the shoe via the AirConditioning Channel. When this moisture is released fresh air is sucked back in. At the same time the AirVent Zone at the instep creates space so that air can circulate freely. This creates an ideal climate and the foot remains dry and resistant to blisters.
I've worn X-socks for some years now and find them to be excellent - the evidence quite frankly is that you don`t even think about them - they`re just there and they work - your feet remain comfortable and odour free (well almost). The Outdoor sock is even more suited to outdoor/trekking activity and they are the lightest yet. Highly recommended.
Like all X-socks they're quite thin - if you like thin short socks grab these.
