Bridgedale CoolFusion Speed trail socks


An outdoor sock geared specifically towards trail runners and ultra racers, that also works well for those of us who wear trail shoes for general hill walking, the Speed Trail is a very clever hybrid of types and thicknesses of material. It uses ‘Coolmax’ fabric on the top of the foot and at the ankle as well as on a small section underneath the midfoot, which helps with heat and moisture control, plus Merino wool in the toes and heel for more padding, warmth and comfort. It’s a short sock and runs cool, so this is best for high aerobic activity or warm temperatures – it worked well walking Spanish tracks and running my local Glasgow trails, but is a little too chilly for my usual mountain bog trotting. Well fitting, relatively pong resistant, and so far, durable.
