The Injinji Outdoor Midweight Mini-Crew NuWool (Charcoal - grey) is the hiking stocking of choice. Hikers who frequently go on long (multi-day) hikes have probably already had quite a few experiences with blisters. Everyone has their own solution for this. One of the most common causes of blisters is friction between the toes. Many hikers solve this by taping the toes individually.
The Injinji Outdoor Midweight Mini-Crew NuWool is a much easier and better solution. Skin-to-skin contact is impossible thanks to the individual toes. This avoids blisters between the toes! The Injinji Outdoor Midweight Mini-Crew NuWool is the ideal toe sock for hikers. The slightly thicker heel underfoot provides extra comfort and cushioning where you need it most.
This model is a short model (mini-crew) and therefore better suited to wearing in low hiking boots. If you are looking for a toe sock to wear in high hiking boots, choose the Injinji Outdoor Midweight Crew NuWool. This is the same toe sock, but just a bit longer and therefore more comfortable in high shoes.
NüWool is Injinji's own merino wool, made from the very finest Australian wool. Most people already know the advantages of merino wool. The fibers are extremely so spun but still very sturdy. One of the special properties of merino wool is that it does not itch. NüWool provides excellent moisture management. Thanks to its natural properties, the fibers of these Merino socks retain small air pockets. These air pockets are the ideal insulation and keep your feet warm in winter and fresh in 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.
