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.
