Xsocks say: Tangibly natural. Tangibly intelligent. Insulating, protective and optimally temperature regulating. Elaborate cushioning zones make these merino socks the right choice for use with sturdy alpine and trekking footwear. With special X-SOCKS refinements, they maintain the one-of-a-kind comfort of merino wool. At the same time, they significantly reduce the disadvantages of merino wool (moisture absorption). That makes them the perfect combination of “nature plus function”. The patented X-Cross Bandage ensures the highest stability, while ventilation systems ensure dry feet and insulating chambers on the instep reduce chills. Perfect for cooler days and tours at somewhat higher elevations.

Here at UOG we're big fans of X-socks, they just seem to work. Until now they've been 100% synthetic and the lure of Merino wool has sometimes got the better of us and we tried others - but we always seem to gravitate back to X-socks. Now we can have the best of both worlds.

We're delighted to add these Merino blend X-socks to our range - they still work but now they feel just that little bit warmer and more comfortable on the foot - hooray.

Help and advice:   
  • 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.
  • Air Guides: Function like spacers along the AirConditioning Channel and effectively support the continuous circulation of fresh air.
  • Instep Protector: The Instep Protector cushions and acts as a shock-absorber, significantly reducing the incidence of painful pressure points and scraping, bruising and blistering.
  • Stretching Rib: Provides maximum elasticity and ideal fit, and air can easily circulate along the ribs.
  • 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.
  • Anatomically shaped footbed: For “L”-left and “R”-right foot with integrated AirConditioning Channel.
  • Traverse Airflow Channel System: Regulates the temperature of the sole of the foot and conducts moist and overheated air into the AirConditioning Channel.
  • Heel Protector: Guards against pressure and friction.
  • 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.
  • Rod-Type paddings: The rod-type structure of the padding allows air to move, so in the case of an impact, the pressure is not transferred to the skin, but escapes to the sides. This way the shock is not only buffered in one direction, but three ways and in three directions.
  • Lambertz-Nicholson 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.
