01 Aug Walk into Summer in the 1000-mile sock!
Summer is here and we’re all itching to get our walking boots on and set off into the great British countryside to enjoy it at its fullest. Before you get those boots on, we would like to bring your attention to the amazing and innovative 1000-mile sock!
Why everyone loves the 1000-mile sock!
The 1000-mile sock range has been developed over the past 20years to ensure comfort and durability every step of the way.
The first to innovate with double sock technology, the 1000-mile sock is known for it’s blister free design, breathability and durability. In the double layer sock an inner sock fits over your feet, whilst the outer layer moves between your foot and the boot, eliminating all the friction that would have rubbed against your skin and caused it to blister.
Once the 1000-mile sock removed the barrier that blisters provide for many an avid hiker it was time to ramp up the technology and re-invent the sock.
Advances in modern fibre’s ensures that many of the 1000-mile sock range are twice as soft and twice as light as most other fibres. They can dry up to 8-times faster than cotton socks which is essential for those rainy days and our wet British weather.
Some of the fabrics are even designed to be anti-odour, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Offering lightweight comfort that is both breathable and hygienic, allowing your feet to stay fresher for longer as you spend your hours adventuring across the landscape.
1000-mile Combat Sock (Twin Pack)
The 1000-mile combat sock is a single layer sock that offers astounding comfort and temperature control thanks to its soft and breathable fibres making them suited to military and service members who need to spend all day with boots on their feet.
Specially crafted ventilation zones along the top of the foot allows the foot to breath easily and regulate its own temperature so that your feet don’t burn up or be adversely affected by moisture from sweating all day long.
Arch bracing technology provides additional support to these socks, creating a custom fit with no chance of them slipping down halfway through your walk.
And the padded toe and heel combines with a flat toe seam to prevent that uncomfortable feeling of walking on the end of your sock and reduces the friction against the skin and decreases the chance of blistering.
