The Injinji Outdoor Midweight Crew NuWool (Charcoal/grey)) is the hiking stocking of choice. Experienced hikers who regularly go on long (multi-day) hikes have probably already had quite a few experiences with blisters. Everyone has their own solution. One of the most common causes of blisters is friction between the toes. Many hikers solve this problem by taping each toe individually.
The Injinji Outdoor Midweight Crew NuWool is a much better and easier solution. Thanks to the individual toes, skin-to-skin contact is impossible. This avoids blisters between the toes! The Injinji Outdoor Midweight Crew NuWool is therefore the ideal toe sock for hikers. The slightly thicker heel under the foot provides extra cushioning and comfort where you need it most. Thanks to the moisture-regulating NüWool (merino wool), these toe socks are also very popular with trail runners.
Looking for a shorter hiking sock? Then try the Outdoor Midweight Mini-Crew NuWool. This is the same hiking teesock, but slightly shorter (to just above the ankle).
NüWool is Injinji's own merino wool. By now, most people already know the benefits of merino wool. This wool is one of the finest wools available. As a result it provides excellent moisture regulation. Thanks to its natural properties, the fibers of these merino socks hold small air pockets. These air pockets are the ideal insulation and keep your feet warm in the winter and fresh in the summer. And are you doing a multi-day trek where your backpack shouldn't be too heavily loaded? Let your socks air and dry overnight, and you can feel free to wear them for several days.
Please note: NuWool is extremely good at absorbing sweat and thermoregulating, but is a slightly less sturdy fibre than the synthetic Injinji socks. The NuWool socks are therefore more susceptible to damage.
