Product Description

X-Socks' innovative Trekking Desert Storm Sock features the patented Interface Sock System; ideal for mountaineering and heavy trekking during intense heat, the unique integrated fine-mesh inner sock directly contacts the skin, significantly reducing friction and rapidly transferring moisture away from your foot. AirConditioning Channels, in conjunction with the Traverse AirFlow Channel system, utilize your movement to keep your feet cooled and bathed in fresh air to prevent blisters and reduce the onset of swelling and fatigue. Vertical-rod ankle padding provides additional support and protection without impeding the airflow around your foot. Instep, heel, toe, and Achilles protectors all buffer your foot from the specific forces generated by trekking over rough uneven terrain. As with all X-Socks, the Trekking Desert Storm sock features an X-Cross bandage that supports and protects the crucial muscles, tendons, and ligaments around your ankle.
