The Technical Explorer is one of the most comfortable and technical spring/summer boot socks we carry! The blend of Merino wool & Coolmax will keep your feet dry and blister-free, while the arch support, double cuff, and flex zone will perfectly fit your foot. In addition, its midweight cushioning will make you want to wear these running socks daily! They also have a seamless toe to reduce any friction inside your boot. 

Why we use merino wool in our socks:
Merino wool is a type of wool that comes from a merino sheep. It is the finest wool on the market, making the fabric soft and itch-free. It is also breathable and temperature-regulating, so your feet are not too hot or cold. Merino is one of the best fibres for wicking moisture as it can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and moves it from your skin to the outside of the fabric, where it evaporates. Because it stays dry, odour-causing bacteria cannot grow, making it a naturally antimicrobial fibre.

Also available in a quarter-length.

Sizes available:
Medium (Men's 4–8 Shoe / Women's 5–9 Shoe)
Large (Men's 8–12 Shoe / Women's 9–13 Shoe)
