Hiking is a recreational activity which consists of taking long walks in outdoor environments. The activity of hiking is often performed on hiking trails that generally requires the use of special footwear, such as hiking boots, that can provide support, stability and traction on rough terrain. When hiking, the use of the appropriate hosiery can also help prevent blisters, distribute pressure and absorb shock making the experience of hiking more enjoyable.
About Sports Socks:
Sports socks are a type of athletic hosiery designed for sports-specific activities such as tennis, running, basketball, soccer etc. Sports socks are usually made from a combination of natural and synthetic fibers designed to wick moisture away from the foot, keeping feet dry during athletic activity. Many sports socks, such as running socks, are designed to go just to the ankle to allow good circulation around the calf. Other sports socks feature a heavier, more supportive construction designed to protect the foot during long hikes or walks. Mid-calf sports socks, mostly for baseball, basketball or ski, will provide additional support around the calf.
