Escape - Double sock for active days
The Escape is the most popular hiking sock in the WRIGHTSOCK collection. This model has a one-sided terry cloth padding in the toe and heel area. As this padding is not fitted on the skin side (as is usual with other sock manufacturers), but is located between the inner and outer socks, rubbing of the padding on the skin is avoided.
Features of the sock
- Double layer
- Anti-blister system
- Calf high, medium thick
- Cushioned in the toe and heel area between the layers
- Middle foot stabilizer
- Shoe recommendation: high barefoot shoes, hiking or trekking boots, high trail shoes, mountain boots, motorcycle boots, safety shoes, hunting boots, rubber boots
Additional informations about the sock
The ESCAPE is a medium thick sock with a knitted stabilisation zone in the midfoot area which provides a secure hold, even during sideways movements. The back of the foot and the shin area of the sock are knitted in a mesh structure to optimally dissipate moisture. The inner layer is white, undyed and therefore foot-healthy. The Dri-Wright and high-tech fibres 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".
