The sole of the sock is made of brushed cotton. The brushed cotton is produced using much longer fibres, which create a silky effect, blending better. As a result, a shiny effect is created, with a softer touch, and the socks are more resistant against wear and washing. The top of the foot and the heel are made from polyamide, to ensure extra breathability and resistance.
The boot/sock combination plays an important role.
There are multiple factors which may cause blisters when you are walking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a boot size that is too small or too big, etc. It is therefore important choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your hiking boots.
How should I choose the size of my walking socks?
You need to choose the correct sock size for your feet to avoid any extra folds forming: These folds may form because the sock is too big ad therefore there is too much material around your foot, or because the sock so small and is pulled towards the inside of your foot. We make the most of the qualities of elastane to ensure that our socks adapt well to your foot and stay in place. It is important that you try on your socks before setting out on a walk.
How should I choose the material of my walking socks?
Moisture must be effectively managed when hiking: We sweat, it’s bound to happen. If your boot is breathable, it will eliminate the moisture of your perspiration: This means you need to choose a lightweight, breathable sock If your shoes are waterproof, to protect you from moisture created by rain, you won’t make the same choice: choose a sock which will absorb your sweat, and direct it as far as possible away from your foot.
Choose your sock length with care
This model is available in 3 sock heights: “Low”: they rise slightly above the shoe, but below the malleolus (ankle bone). They can be worn with shoes with a low upper. “Mid”: they protect your malleoli (ankle bones), and stop just above the: they can be worn with shoes with a low upper. “High”: they are ideal for walking shoes with a mid-height upper, as they stop just below the calf and protect the ankle of the boot.
Which pair of shoes are suited to the NH500 mid socks?
They are ideal for wearing with the NH500 shoes: the NH500 mid socks contain cotton, which absorbs moisture, and they have a loop construction underfoot, which distances the moisture from your foot. They are high enough to protect your ankle from the boot. This is an excellent combination to limit the appearance of blisters.
