    TKX Hiking Socks For Drysuit Diving

    By

    Many of the socks made for drysuit diving are highly priced, and in my opinion, ill-fitting. I tried the TKX Hiking socks during drysuit diving in California, and found them to be more comfortable than the overpriced socks made for drysuit diving. Just because a sock is made for "hiking" doesn't mean that it won't work for other applications. This sock works well for wildlife surveys beneath hiking boots AND beneath a drysuit!

    a fine compromise sock

    By

    comfortable. if you don't want to stock a collection of different socks, these probably will suffice for almost anything. they work for sandals, dress shoes, and a variety of hiking boots as well as athletic shoes of various types, assuming you can get the color/pattern you need.

    Best Socks when Backpacking

    By

    Best cushion sock I have ever used in several decades of backpacking. Have tried others but none compare to this Trekking sock from Thorlo. For day hikes I like to use medium weight hiking socks from Thorlo (THRXM hiker) or Darn Tough. But none of these others provide the cushion the Trekking sock provides. Be sure you fit your boot with these socks since they are thicker than most. Without a doubt, the Trekking sock is the go-to sock whenever backpacking or whenever the pack weight moves above 20 - 25 lbs.

    ALL-AROUND OUTSTANDING SOCKS

    By

    Whether I am putting on my Navy uniform or grabbing my backpack to knock out some heavy miles on the AT, these socks are essential. They are soft and comfortable but also tough out a full day in the rain or on a small boat. They stand up to days of abuse in my boots and trail runners. And after a wash they are like brand new. I have tried many other brands and standard issues, these are the best!

    Serious foot protection

    By

    I wore the KX (hiking) sock every day for 24 years, but switched to the TKX (trekking) while healing from plantar fasciitis & Achilles tendonitis due to a barefoot injury 2 years ago. I now wear the TKX year-round. They are not too hot in the summer, provide sufficient warmth in Maryland winters, and have excellent padding and protection in the important areas. The KX also provided needed support and cushioning while shoeless at home, but the TKX feels like walking on a cloud. And they last 3-4 time longer than average socks. For 26 years I have been recommending them with confidence too everyone I know who complains about their feet.
