How do you make a great sock better?…knit Blister Free™ Profilen® yarn into the high abrasion toe and heel areas of the sock.
The men’s LARAPINTA HIKER eXtreme socks have all the attributes of our standard men’s Larapinta Hiker but the Blister Free™ system uses friction free Profilen® fibres in the heel and toes areas ensuring you enjoy blister-free, multi-day, backpacking and hiking adventures.
Simple: our WildernessWool™ reduces unpleasant foot odours, while the synthetic fibres extend durability. And the Larapinta Hiker eXtreme socks will also impress you the moment you slip a pair onto your feet with their luxurious feel. A standard 3/4 length sock height provides both protection and comfort to just below the knee. The socks will fit perfectly without slipping down as the SFS (Secure-Fit-System) prevents creasing and keeps the socks where they belong. The High cushioning throughout the sock will assist in absorbing impact on the trail and also keep your feet warm and dry in all conditions. Finally the LIN Toe seam reduces bulk and assists the Profilen® fibres in preventing blisters.
So what does all of this mean?
Easy…our Larapinta Hiker eXtreme socks are the ideal companions for your next outdoor trek. Mid-weight, robust, durable and most importantly, blister free all day comfort.
