There are a lot of reviews and articles about the importance of using the correct footwear when out walking in the hills. Now don't get us wrong we know (from painful experience) that having correctly fitted footwear suitable for the terrain and weather is vitally important, but one thing that is commonly overlooked is the importance of the sock!
Have you ever been walking and the sock has started to move just so you can feel it start to bunch up around the back of the ankle resulting in painful rubbing and a blister and no matter how many times you adjust the sock you just know it is going to continue to happen.
There are of course some socks that claim to keep you blister free and we have used them some of them and the blister free guarantee is more often than not spot on. However, these double layer socks can sometimes be too heavy in the summer and what you really need is a sock that keeps your feet cool.
That is why we love the Bridgedale TrailBlaze. This merino wool blend sock is a lightweight walking sock with hybrid construction to provide excellent protection and ventilation where it's needed most.
It has mesh side and underfoot panels which aid breathability while the WoolFusion® fibre blend helps wick away natural moisture for comfort on all-day walks.
If you are looking for a good sock for walking then the Bridgedale TrailBlaze could be just the one.
