The desire for warm feet is often the reason incorrect materials are used. Wool combos can keep the foot warm but they enable an extremely high rate of bacterial growth. The X-SOCKS® Trekking Air Step 2.0 fulfills the highest demands for hygiene, air-conditioning and comfort through the use of differentiated materials. The footbed of Mythlan actively reduces unwanted bacteria growth, whilst wool provides for good warmth on the leg. Plus, the intricate cushioning and protector system of X-SOCKS® optimises protection. Details: Self adjusting Cuff:
