Epic socks

I've had these for over a year, and they're perfect. I've used them hiking in cooler climates and even in really hot, humid weather. I think if I didn't have these id have huge blisters as I have pretty wide feet and noticed they compress my feet and provide extra support for areas of the foot that tend to rub. Will definitely buy again.

Additional Product Information



  • 57% Polyamide
  • 39% Cotton
  • 4% Spandex

Pack of 2 pairs

This model is sold in packs of 2 pairs of socks of identical color.

Thread characteristics

The sole of the sock is made from brushed cotton. Brushed cotton is made from much longer fibers, that feel silky, that interweave better. The result is it’s much shinier, softer to the touch, more stable when washing, and more durable in use. The top of the foot and heel are made from Polyamide for greater breathability and durability.

The shoe/sock combination plays an important role.

There are numerous causes of blisters when hiking: rubbing, a fold in the socks, damp, shoes that are a size too small or too big... We therefore recommend you choose the correct shoe size and the sock fabric that is adapted to your walking shoes.

How to choose the size of your hiking socks?

You need to choose a sock size that’s adapted to your foot to avoid any additional folding of the material: either because the sock is too big and therefore there is too much material around your foot, or because the sock is too small and is pulled toward the inside of the boot. We use the qualities of spandex so that our socks fit your foot properly and stay in place. It’s important to try the socks on before going off hiking.

How to choose the material of your hiking socks?

You need to manage moisture as best you can when walking: you will sweat, it is often inevitable. If your shoe is breathable, it will wick away the damp from your perspiration: you need to choose light and breathable socks also If your shoe is waterproof, to protect yourself from the dampness of rain and you will not make the same choice: you should prefer socks that will absorb your perspiration and then wick it away from your foot.

Choosing the height of your socks

We offer 3 sock heights for this model: “Low” socks: they protrude slightly from the boot, but remain below your ankle bone. They’re worn with low-upper boots. “Mid” socks: they protect your ankles, stopping just above them: they’re worn with low-upper boots. “High” socks: they’re ideal for mid-length upper hiking boots, as they stop just below the calf and protect your ankle from the boot.

What pair of boots is suitable for nh500 high socks?

They are ideal with NH500 mid boots: in fact, NH500 high socks contain cotton that absorbs moisture and have a terry construction under the sock that draws moisture away from your foot. Finally, they are high enough to protect your ankle from the boot. This is an excellent combination to limit the appearance of blisters.
