Sock Features

Hover over the highlighted areas below to learn about the special features of this sock.

Welt Cuff
This sock features a welt-cuff. A welt-cuff is a double layer of knit fabric. This is an attractive and durable cuff that will not stretch out.
The leg of this sock is a crew length so it comes to the lower part or just below the calf. This sock features comfortable terry loop on the back. The front shin portion of the leg features thin mesh knit for cool comfort.
Top of Foot (Instep)
This sock utilizes a thin mesh knit to really cool down your feet. It also reduces the total bulkiness of the sock.
The heel is made of the same terry loop as the sole and the arch of the foot. The heel is reinforced for longer wear.
This closure is stitched loop-for-loop on the knitting machine to produce a seamless closure on the inside and outside of the sock. This reduces blisters caused by bunched up sock material. The toe is also reinforced for longer wear.
Bottom of Foot (Sole)
The sole is made with comfortable terry loop. This loop provides cushioning and has a very soft feel. This sole is a medium cushion.

Sockspert Opinions

John's Thoughts

This sock reminds me of one of my favorite athletic socks, the Wigwam Cool-Lite Pro. In many ways, it is a hiking oriented sock based on the same materials, construction and philosophy. While not a merino wool sock like I typically wear, it has much of the same soft comfort. I'm picky about my socks, especially if I'm wearing them on a long hike. If the weather is very hot, the Wigwam Cool-Lite Hiker is my first choice.



Q. What temperature range is this sock designed?
A. Your sock choice is dependent on a number of factors. Temperature is one of them but your activity is equally important. This sock is designed to be cool, so we don't recommend it in freezing weather, but for certain activities this sock is actually quite well suited for cooler weather. For example, I know someone that runs in the winter (in Wisconsin) using these socks. However, if you're activity involves sitting or standing in the cold, the mesh knit on the top of the foot and the front of the leg will not provide enough warmth.
