    Daddy day care- Walking to school socks
    Tight fit and cushioning at the toes Sizing.

    Great socks to replace worn out Bridgedale walking socks. I use these every day on the 8km school walk with my boys, dead comfy socks and the only drawback is that I'm a size 9 which means that Decathlon socks are either too long or too short due to their sizing. These are too long but fit nice and tightly around the arch of the foot and have excellent toe padding to prevent any rubbing.

Storage Tips
Store your properly dried socks in a dark, dry place.


Limiting the risk of chafing
In the heel and the tip, the component is a polyamide spun with a second thread of PTFE-coated polyamide that helps to reduce the risk of blisters forming. These socks cannot protect 100% from blisters. Blisters usually appear when our skin is weakened by chafing, caused by socks, shoes or foreign bodies. Damp also plays an important role as it weakens the skin.
Characteristics of the threads.
The heel and tip of the socks are made from Friction free polyamide to reduce chafing. The rest of the socks are made from polyamide that dries very quickly to limit the damp foot feeling. Specific plush loop, thicker for more comfort. Very loose weave to increase wicking away of perspiration.
How to choose the height of your socks.
We have produced 3 heights of hiking socks. "SHORT", which are slightly higher than your shorts but below your ankle. "MID", which are slightly higher than your ankle, to protect it. These two heights are designed to be worn with low shoes. "HIGH", which are ideal for high hiking shoes, and end just below your calf.
Choosing your hiking sock size.
Each one of our sock sizes covers 4 shoe sizes (3/5, 6/8, 8.5/11, 12/14). We use elasthane in all our socks, so that they fit closely to your feet and remain in place. We all have different feet lengths, proportions and volume, that is why it is important to try on your hiking shoes in store before buying them. Try out your socks before going on a long hike
