There's always a good chance that every path that you take on your hike isn't going to be a particularly smooth one. Loose rock underfoot can sometimes make even the seasoned hiker feel like something is digging in, even if they are wearing the thickest soled boots known to man. These heavyweight socks are something to behold. Thick enough to withstand even the nastiest of nasty paths, they will make walking along the craggiest, rough terrain a lot smoother and simpler. Merino wool is generally used with these socks and their softness and moisture-wicking properties will go a long way to ensuring you have comfort and durability in addition to your hiking boots.
