The Bridgedale Hike Lightweight Women's Hiking Sock is a thin 3/4 crew that's perfect for walking and trekking in warmer weather. It features cushioning in the form of shock zones - padded areas on the bottom of the sock - which absorb impact whilst walking, and a flat toe seem to prevent rubbing.
So it stays in place, the Hike Lightweight has Y heels that fit perfectly around the contours of your feet. These socks also feature Bridgedale's Thermo Fit technology, which ensures they maintain their original size and shape, wash after wash, for that same reliable women's-specific fit.
As part of Bridgedale's Merino Endurance range, the women's Hike Lightweight is made from a blend of new wool, merino wool and synthetic fibres. This creates a close, supportive fit, otherwise known as Bridgedale's Performance Fit, and balances insulation, breathability and moisture wicking so that your feet stay dry and comfortable. The antibacterial properties of merino wool also help to prevent nasty smells so that your socks stay fresher for longer.
All these elements combine to create a sock that is highly durable, comfortable and cushioned. This is perfect for mountain hikes, countryside walks, and many other outdoor activities. With its supreme moisture wicking abilities, which is aided by the mesh structure on top of the foot, the Hike Lightweight 3/4 Crew from Bridgedale promises to keep your feet dry and comfortable all year round.
