Thorlos Outdoor Explorer Walking Socks, and indeed the entire 2017 Outdoor range by this US producer, are lifestyle-specific, made to meet the demands of each particular user of the outdoors. In the case of the Thorlos Outdoor Explorer, that’s anyone who is a more ‘adventuresome’ type, prone to hiking, backpacking and camping as soon as the weather allows. The socks have medium-density padding strategically placed to give the best protection, and stay-up tops for better fit.
These soft-touch half calf-length unisex walking socks have a special blend of merino wool and other fibres including siliconised polyester that Thorlo terms ‘PrimaLoft’ - a yarn delivering outstanding insulation, softness and durability, able to wick as well as it warms. In this case, those capabilities are enhanced by flow-thru venting panels.
A form-fitting foot and ankle uses ‘transition gussets’ capable of preventing bunching, twisting and slipping during wear. Flatter-styled Smooth Linked Toes for smooth seams help offset discomfort and rubbing during long treks.
My husband was very pleased by the quality of the products and said the padding was excellent and comfortable to wear
