Challenger ProTrek £12.50
Challenger ProTrek walking socks are made from Merino wool, a natural, sustainable and durable fibre that keeps feet warm and dry. They are exceptionally soft and comfortable. The cushioned feet protect against impact, while comfort toe seams and a high heel help prevent blisters.
I particularly liked the stretchy, supportive band at the mid-sole. This made my feet feel protected in this vulnerable area, as it offers extra support to arches – it also stops the sock from sliding around inside your boots. The socks have a stretchy – but not restrictive – comfort top which keeps the socks in place without slipping down. They are also very breathable: merino wool is well-known for its natural breathability and anti-bacterial properties.
