Tangibly natural. Tangibly intelligent. Insulating, protective and optimally temperature regulating. Elaborate cushioning zones make these merino socks the right choice for use with sturdy alpine and trekking footwear. With special X-SOCKS refinements, they maintain the one-of-a-kind comfort of merino wool. At the same time, they significantly reduce the disadvantages of merino wool (moisture absorption). That makes them the perfect combination of “nature plus function”. The patented X-Cross Bandage ensures the highest stability, while ventilation systems ensure dry feet and insulating chambers on the instep reduce chills. Perfect for cooler days and tours at somewhat higher elevations.

Conducts air away from the anatomically shaped footbed via the inside surface of the foot and thus ensures that moist,overheated air is pumped out of even tight fitting shoes with every movement.
You can breathe. You’re intelligent. Aren’t socks too?
And this is the challenge. How can we perfectly protect and support our feet and recreate the natural, dry barefoot climate at the same time? The revolution: X-SOCKS. The X-SOCKS research team learned from evolution – and completed it by an essential, revolutionary step.
The breakthrough is the development of the AirConditioning Channel. For the first time a sock is capable to dissipate warm, moist air and provide the foot with cool, dry fresh air. Your feet can now breath in socks and shoes!
Function like spacers along the AirConditioning Channel and effectively support the continuous circulation of fresh air.
An air guide along the AirConditioning Channel facilitates efficient air circulation. Placed along the AirConditioning Channel, it creates a thin layer of air between the boot and your skin and thus ensures the continual circulation of fresh air. If the foot is dry, chances are lower that a blister will form.
The Instep Protector cushions and acts as a shock-absorber, significantly reducing the incidence of painful pressure points and scraping, bruising and blistering.
Buckles and laces can become a problem in sports that are reliant on leg-power. Pressure points and chafing aren‘t unusual. The Instep Protector minimises the problem. A soft cushion spreads out the point pressure significantly reducing the incidence of painful pressure points and scraping, bruising and blistering. The Instep Protector also provides for a pleasant feeling in the shoe.
Provides maximum elasticity and ideal fit, and air can easily circulate along the ribs.
The integrated Stretching Ribs provide all-over elasticity and comfort. The air circulates around the ribbing; thus, moisture is pumped out of the shoe with every step.
Guards against blisters and chafing.
Who wants to be top needs to take care of his toes. The asymmetric Toe Protector absorbs pressure and perfectly hugs the contour of the Toe Protector absorbs pressure and perfectly hugs the contour of theasymmetric toe area.
Asymmetrical impact-absorbing protectors made of hollow-core Robur fibers cushion and protect toes at the pressure-sensitive tips.
Everyone knows the unpleasant feeling when a toe constantly bumps up against the shoe. After a while you have a painful sore spot. The chances of this problem occurring while doing sports is quite high because continuous movement can cause the foot to slide forward in the shoe. To buffer the foot from this pressure the ToeTip Protector is made of Robur that cushions and protects the toes as well the especially sensitive tips of the toes.
Anatomically shaped footbed:
For “L”-left and “R”-right foot with integrated AirConditioning Channel.
Our entire body weight is borne by only a few small areas of the foot. Using the best technology available today, the anatomically shaped footbed aligned to “R”- right and “L”- left foot, protects and supports these high stress areas, the soles of foot. The AirConditioning Channel starts at the foot‘s arch and leads out of the shoe. Heat and moisture are continually regulated by the pumping effect which ensures that, with every step, fresh air flows around the foot.
Traverse AirFlow Channel System:
Regulates the temperature of the sole of the foot and conducts moist and overheated air into the AirConditioning Channel.
The traverse ventilation system insures that large areas of the sole of the foot, areas normally tightly pressed into the shoe, are amply supplied with fresh air. For this, the pumping action of the arch of the foot is mobilised. When you step down, the flattening of the arch forces fresh air around the entire sole of the foot and, when the arch lifts again, air is drawn out of the shoe.
Guards against pressure and friction.
The heel area is particularly prone to blisters: The Heel Protector absorbs friction and thus effectively decreases the risk of blistering.
The unique crossover ankle bands, knit of elastic materials, give stressed tendons, muscles and joints secure hold and stability without limiting freedom of movement.
Our feet depend on the fine tuned interaction of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. One careless step can be enough to destroy this experienced team. Therefore the ankles require extra protection without inhibiting the foot’s freedom. This is why we invented the X-Cross Bandage. It is a cross ankle bandage knitted from elastic material, it stabilises the ankle and optimally supports the foot’s function.
The rod-type structure of the padding allows air to move, so in the case of an impact, the pressure is not transferred to the skin, but escapes to the sides. This way the shock is not only buffered in one direction, but three ways and in three directions.
The thicker the cushion, the better the protection. But the fact that such stockings can literally strangle the air out of a person has been ignored by all sock manufacturers. Except us. We have developed a sophisticated cushion system which perfectly protects and allows air to circulate even within the shoe. The rod-type structure of the padding allows air to move, so in the case of an impact, the pressure is not transferred to the skin, but escapes to the sides. This way the shock is not only buffered in one direction, but three ways and in three directions.
Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector:
Thanks to its highly abrasion-resistant and impact-absorbing material, the protector protects the Achilles tendons from pressure points and friction from the top of the shoe. The sensitive Achilles tendons arent stressed because they are encased in the cushioning pod.
The special Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector prevents strain on the sensitive Achilles tendon because it is protected by a surrounding cushion. This shockabsorbing cushion serves as a buffer between foot and shoe and thus prevents pressure and friction.
Self-adjusting cuff (Socks):
Adapts to any size leg without slipping or constricting.
The self-adjusting cuff adapts to any leg size without slipping or constricting. That guarantees for a perfect fit and wearing comfort.
Knit like a fine net of air permeable Mythlan. This results in cooling ventilation on the soles of the feet.
The longer the days get, the more active we become. And activity often means sports – anything from a leisurely stroll to a marathon. But as different as the various sports may be, they all have one thing in common: the summer heat.
For this reason, X-SOCKS has developed a particularly light line for summer wear. The anatomically-shaped “R”-right/“L”-left footbeds are made of Skin NODOR, a yarn which inhibits odour and the growth of bacteria and ensures pleasantly dry and hygienically fresh feet. Integrated into the Skin NODOR material are AirCool Stripes, of breathable Mythlan processed into a fine-knit net. These high-tech functional fibres cool and ventilate feet even under the sole and provide incredible comfort even on the hottest days of summer.
Ankle bones are often scraped up during falls since they jut out from the sides of the legs. The crescent-moon-shaped alignment of the pads offers the best possible protection without affecting the ventilation ability of the AirConditioning Channel.
