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.
MAXIMUM COMFORT, MINIMAL RISK OF BLISTERS. Developed for demanding treks on and off groomed trails. The X-SOCKS® Outdoor perfectly complements a sporty trekking shoe or a mid-cut boot. While the X-Cross® Bandage, Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector and Toe Protectors protect the foot from injury, a temperature-regulating system provides for comfortably dry feet.
With every step, the Traverse AirFlow Channels under the soles pump moisture out of the shoe via the Air-Conditioning Channel®. Fresh air is pulled in between every step. Simulatenously, the AirVent Zone on the instep maintains space for air to circulate unimpeded. With that you gain an optimally temperature-regulated, dry foot that resists 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.
