The summer has been unusually hot across the northern hemisphere, so it’s been a particularly hard season for hiking during the dog days.
But now the air is cooling, and the bugs and crowds have dissipated which means only one thing. Autumn hiking season is here.
Any seasoned hiker will tell you that a good pair of socks is a must-have so here’s our recommended top 3 socks for Autumnal hiking.
The Midweight Merino Performance Boot “Trekker”
This is an all-year round sock but is particularly good for late summer / early Autumn temperatures when the weather is interchangeable. They have thick padding at the heel and toes but light socking between these areas allowing the air the travel up these channels, allowing your feet to cool.
Our longest serving sock. Copied but never bettered
The Lightweight Merino Performance Boot
This is a lightweight sock for the warmer days out hiking. Designed to be worn with lighter footwear, the advanced padding system provides extra support and comfort to the foot. The Merino Performance provides resilient padding, insulation, moisture wicking and outstanding durability on the trails.
Simple is appearance but full of technical features.
Now, our first two recommendations are based on being optimistic about the weather. In case we get some wet and windy weather, we thought we’d give a mention to our fully waterproof Storm sock. Made up of 3 layers to ensure your feet are warm and dry this sock provides all round protection for the wettest days.
Balances being waterproof with warmth and breathability.
