Elaborate cushioning zones make these merino socks the right choice for use with sturdy alpine and trekking footwear.
Tangibly natural. Tangibly intelligent. Insulating, protective and optimally temperature regulating.
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.
