STRIDE - Double sock for active days
The STRIDE crew is a medium thick sock without padding and reaches under the calf. This model is often used by hikers and runners who don't need padding because the shoe fits snugly. STRIDE crew also works very well in solid work and safety shoes.
Features of the sock
- Double layer
- Anti-blister system
- Calf high, medium thick, unpadded
- Middle foot stabilizer
- Shoe recommendation: walking shoes, barefoot shoes, trail shoes, light and high hiking or trekking boots, mountain boots, skate shoes, hunting boots, safety shoes
Additional informations about the sock
Compared to the thinnest model COOLMESH II, the STRIDE is knitted noticeably firmer. Whether you choose the thin COOLMESH II or the slightly thicker STRIDE depends on how tight the shoe fits. If the shoe fits tightly against the foot, WRIGHTSOCK recommends the COOLMESH II model. If there is more space in the shoe, WRIGHTSOCK considers the STRIDE model to be the more suitable variant. WRIGHTSOCK fans who practice sports with frequent sideways movements (e.g. football, handball, volleyball, table tennis) often prefer the STRIDE sock model.
- A knitted stabilization zone in the midfoot area provides a secure hold
- The back of the foot is knitted in a net structure in order to optimally dissipate moisture
- The inner layer is white, undyed and therefore foot healthy
- The Dri-Wright and high-tech fibers in the inner and outer layers ensure dry feet and protection against blistering
WRIGHTSOCK is constructed in two layers and friction does not penetrate the skin because it is neutralised between the inner and outer sock layers, while the special fibre of the inner layer ensures dry feet.
Dri-Wright is a polyester fibre developed by Wrightenberry Mills. Polyester has the advantage of drying faster and being more durable than almost any other fibre. By "channels" on the fiber surface Dri-Wright can dissipate foot moisture clearly better than conventional polyester fibers.
Note for customers whose street shoe size is at the WRIGHTSOCK "size limit"
In principle, WRIGHTSOCK recommends that customers whose shoe size is at the upper edge of the size scale change to the next higher size. After washing, the socks become about one street shoe size smaller and then fit ideally in these limiting cases. A person with a shoe size of 41-42 would therefore choose a sock with a size of L. The size of the sock would be the same for a person with a shoe size of 41-42. The double-layer WRIGHTSOCK sock should fit tightly in order to fully develop its effect. Socks that are too large can cause the foot to "slip".
