Backpacker's socks are designed to ensure warmth, softness and wear resistance in various environments. Prepare suitable socks according to the various road conditions in your plan and the expected weather conditions. You can select them according to the following rough classifications:
Liners: Liners are very thin. This kind of socks made of thin capillary material is used to fit the feet. The socks drain the sweat on the feet by capillary action to keep the feet dry and comfortable. Because socks are afraid of wear, they can only be worn between outer socks and feet, remember that they are designed to be worn in other socks
Lightweight hiking socks: Designed for warm weather and leisurely journeys, lightweight hiking socks emphasize the perspiration and comfort in warm climates. They are thicker, warmer and more durable than socks. They are also very soft. But their thickness is limited so they can only stay comfortable on hot days. Most lightweight hiking socks are made of sweat-wicking materials. It doesn't matter if you wear these stockings or not.
Middleweight hiking socks: These socks are designed to provide reliable comfort and thermal insulation in cold climates. They are thicker and warmer than lightweight hiking socks. Most are particularly thickened in areas that are prone to wear, such as the heel and sole of the heel, for maximum comfort. These socks should be worn with stockings.
Hiking socks: Hiking socks are the thickest, warmest and softest of these socks. They are designed for long marches, difficult terrain and cold temperatures. Generally speaking, hiking socks are too thick and too hot for low-level hiking in warm climates.
