Eight miles in you'll really start to appreciate the soft, double cuffs and double-density loop construction of the Bridgedale X-Hale Light Hiker Sock. With features like wicking merino, friction-reducing polyamide fibers, and cushioning in key areas the X-hale will keep you moving.
Merino wool aids in moisture and odor control
Mesh panels allow optimum cooling on hot days
Friction-reducing polyamide fibers help to prevent blisters
I live and tend to hike in warm or moderate climates, 6-10 mile romps. These socks are the bomb. Never a problem. Wear them with Salomon XA Pros and Lowa Renegades. Nare a blister or hot spot. Cannot recommend them more highly.
