Elaborate cushioning zones make these merino socks the right choice for use with sturdy alpine and trekking footwear. 

X-Bionic says:

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.

Help and advice:   
  • AirFlow AnklePads: 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.
  • ToeTip Protector: Asymmetrical impact-absorbing protectors made of hollow-core Robur™ fibers cushion and protect toes at the pressure-sensitive tips.
  • 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.
  • Rod Type Paddings: Placed on the back, above and below the 3D-BionicSphere-System, they ensure effective ventilation. Due to their special design they also work under pressure. Their great elasticity guarantees that the temperature-regulating woven design fits on the body perfectly.
  • Work like spacers and borders along the Air-Conditioning Channel for effective air circulation.
  • Anatomically shaped footbed: For “L”-left and “R”-right foot with integrated AirConditioning Channel
  • Aktiv-Bund: The highly elastic cuff ensures perfect fit without constricting.
  • Stretching Rib: Provides maximum elasticity and ideal fit, and air can easily circulate along the ribs.
  • Heel Protector: Guards against pressure and friction.
  • Instep Protector with AirDuct Structure: The three-dimensional chamber structure relieves pressure on the instep while at the same time ensuring effective air circulation in this area.
  • Air-Conditioning Channel: The Air-Conditioning Channel is a ventilation system of channels that flow around the body, continuously carrying away moisture and warmth. It allows air to flow to body regions not normally accessible by fresh air circulation.
  • Compression: Mid-Compression
  • Insulation: Light
  • All sizes weigh around 80g per pair
  • Fabric: 35% Merino wool / 33% DuraWool™ / 22% Nylon / 8% Robur™ / 2% Elastane
