The right gear can make or break any expedition. That's why we've created the new PhD Outdoor Mountaineer socks, Smartwool's most technical mountaineering socks ever. Smartwool has put some serious sock science to work in these all-mountain socks, including revolutionary Indestructawool technology for ultimate durability and the 4 Degree elite fit system for a dialled fit.
The Smartwool Alpinist Running Socks have been built for Performance in the Highest Degree as it is equipped with Indestructawool technology which features a patent-pending construction method for exceptional durability and comfort. With high density cushioning in the heel and toe it provides protection and comfort in high impact areas, while flat knit leg accommodates fit of low-volume mountaineering boots. For a comfortable fit, the socks use the 4 Degree Elite Fit System which uses two elastics for greater stretch and recovery to keep the sock in place while mesh ventilation zones provide optimum moisture management and maximum breathability which will keep your feet feeling cool and dry. The socks also have a Virtually Seamless toe construction which reduces the risk of chafing, a flex zone at the ankle which offers maximum flexibility and lastly, with a 20-30 mmHg graduated compression rating, it helps post-activity recovery.
