This sock is designed well with key rub points around the sock fitted with extra padding. The bottom of the sock has padding for the ball of the foot and the heel, as well as for the side of the foot. I like the design, however the sock is rather thin for a medium level sock. Its more like a sports sock. Perhaps its best for hot climates? I would have like to have had this design on a thicker sock such as Smartwool medium sock thickness.
I have had some Bridgedale socks in the past that were not my favorites, but these are much more technical. They thought of it all in this sock I would say, good arch support, padding is in all the right spots and just feels good when wearing. It is slightly thinner than some Med weight socks.
This is my 3rd pair of Bridgedale socks, and they are quickly becoming my favorite sock brand for a few reasons... They are super durable, they provide cushioning where it's needed, and they breathe like no other.
Socks are great for all day hikes and or all around use. They breath very well and have a nice all around fit on the foot.
These socks are amazing and very comfortable for all day use.
