You can't climb Mount Everest, run from lions and tigers in the African desert, or wrestle anacondas in the Amazon rainforest without wearing pair of trusty Holeproof explorer socks. The famous explorer sock is made from a wool blend and includes two layers: the inner layer is made of breathable wool, while the outer is made from nylon. It's the long-lasting, maximum comfort solution for the active person.
When to wear wool socks
There's just no substitute for wool – Holeproof explorer socks can be worn in just about any environment. Needless to say, they are a treat for your feet in the colder months and for camping trips, hiking adventures and bushwalking. They are even ideal for tradesmen on any kind of job.
Why wool socks are still a great investment
Wool is a natural fibre that repels water. This means that if your boots get wet inside for any particular reason, the outer layer of the wool fibres will work to keep your socks and feet dry. And not only does wool repel water, but the hydrophilic qualities in the fabric will wick it away from your feet, so your sweat doesn't stay on your skin. These two qualities also mean that wool can gain and release heat depending on your environment. This means you won't overheat if you are out in the cold and then the weather starts to warm up.
Wool also dries faster than cotton or other synthetic fibres, and it is naturally fire-resistant. Best of all, wool is insulating due to its built-in air pockets that are between its fibres, so it will keep your feet warm in even the coldest conditions.
