'The first real trail running sock'. Medium + Density protective padded sock, protecting feet without adversely affecting the fit of the shoe. Dual Layer Moisture Elimination System removes sweat, sweat vapors, and water from the skin through the inner Drymax layer to the outer absorbent layer, keeping feet dry and comfortable all day long.
Drymax stay impossibly dry despite the conditions. Their varying thicknesses' attribute as much to warmth as protection. The key with foot care is removing either moisture, heat or friction. Blisters are avoided when any one of these three factors is removed. Drymax stay so dry that on pulling them out of the washing machine, they already feel almost completely dry to the touch. We've worn these socks on all terrain and in all conditions and quite simply nothing else comes close to the level of blister protection they offer. They are on the whole much cheaper than other competing brands, money which in our opinion, is wasted. Wear these and you're unlikely to go back to anything else.
Trail dirt inside a sock is a bad thing; it can easily cause blisters or rib the skin raw. To help prevent dirt from getting inside Drymax Light Trail socks, we did not include vents. In addition, the Trail socks’ double welted leg has extra padding around the ankle. This extra padding protects the leg, and seals the top of the shoe to keep out dirt & debris.
Wet feet can be a trail runner’s worst enemy, and getting wet feet is almost inevitable. The Drymax Light Trail Running socks’ Dual Layer Moisture Elimination System actually removes sweat, sweat vapors, and water from the skin through the inner Drymax layer to the outer absorbent layer. The double welt top is made of Drymax fibers to repel water, so when a runner splashes through water, the top of the socks stay dry.
Drymax Lite Trail Running Socks are a Medium + Density protective padded sock. Dense padding is used, as opposed to thick padding, as it protects feet without adversely affecting the fit of the shoes. The Lite Trail Running Socks were designed for use in Mild to Hot conditions, keeping feet dry, comfortable and odor free all day long.
3D Advanced Fit
Drymax's sock sizes fit because they were developed on special 3D shaped foot models. Each size sock includes a color size mark for easy match-up after laundering.
Several features work together as an anti-blister system to actively prevent the formation of blisters. 1) Exceptional 3D fit, 2) Five sock sizes, 3) Seamless insides, 4) An instep-hugging arch band, and 5) Because Drymax socks stay dry, the skin stays dry too; therefore blisters normally caused by sweat or sweat vapor are prevented.
Active Odor Control
The MicroZap® antimicrobial in the Drymax® Fibers is a silver - zirconium phosphate ceramic ion-exchange resin. It fights odor-causing bacteria, helping keep socks odor free. Not a topical treatment; MicroZap is molecularly infused into our Drymax fibers. Being non-migratory and non-toxic, MicroZap provides long term Active Odor Control.
Long Lasting Comfort, Durability & Looks
The special fibers used in our Drymax Socks have a comfortable springiness and do not get stiff, shrink or lose shape over time. They are designed to last a long time using the highest quality fibers, and abrasion resistant nylon fiber reinforcements in the normal wear areas.
