Smartwool’s newly launched Hike collection is designed to be the comfiest, most robust and best fitting range yet. The socks replace Smartwool’s popular Ph.D. collection, but almost everything has had an upgrade.
Consumer reviews found that the new designs are some of the very best hiking socks. Although socks are not the most ultimate wear the wearers brag around, but Smartwool’s newly launched Hike collection made a huge difference to comfort and performance when hiking out.
Smartwool has taken the understanding that all-over bulk in walking socks is not only needless but counterproductive when it comes to effective hiking.
Instead, its Hike collection socks have padding only where it is needed to aid hikers to avoid blisters – in the heel, arch and toe sections.
The toe also has the simplest seam to remove any blister danger zone. On top of it, newly added mesh ventilation on the upper foot aids increasing breathability and stops hikers’ feet from overheating.
