Extremities Light Hiker (2013)

Extremities are experts in, well, the extremities – so it goes to figure that their socks should be excellent. Probably the most comfortable socks here, the Light Hikers are made from 25 per cent wool and 42 per cent Coolmax polyester among other principally stretchy things, though on inspection you’d be forgiven for thinking they were pure wool. A light, breathable cuff aids ventilation, and a thick pad and reinforced heel provide cushioning. With such a luxurious weave, durability might not be their strong point; but when socks feel this good, you won’t care.
