Extreme heights demand extreme materials and the Mountain Hiking socks from X-socks use of DuraWool™ keep feet warm in the coldest conditions. The AirConditioning Channel® actively works in ensuring moisture does not gather to create chill by ensuring that with every step moist air is filtered out of the shoe. X-socks cushioning zones and protectors also work to reduce trekking-specific stresses to the feet, protecting all the toes and the heels with stability provided by the X-Cross® Bandage.
An anatomically shaped footbed - Because our left and right foot are not the same, X-Socks have made each side complement the form of each foot. Support is put in higher pressure areas to support the natural rolling movement of the foot.
An enhanced Heel Protector absorbs friction and therefore reduces the risk of blistering while on the opposite end your toes are treated to a reinforced Toe Protector and Toe Tip Protector, both of these are are asymmetrical, again fitting to the natural contours of each foot. Impact-absorbing protectors made of hollow-core Robur fibres will cushion and protect your toes as well as reducing the chance of blisters and chafing.
X-Socks recognise that the arch is a place that strikes the floor the least so they placed an Air-Conditioning Channel along the arch and up the cuff; you can identify this in the photo where the material in the arch is sewn in a different pattern. Harder to see are the Aircool Stripes and Traverse Airflow Channel System which are lateral ventilation channels under the sole and channels directing airflow upwards. The combination of these creates ventilation to your feet and wicks away any sweat. The idea is that with every strike you make, air from the gap of your arch is circulated up and out creating a ventilation system that dries, even in snug-fitting shoes.
