Our boots are built according to the shell principle, which means that they are like an outer garment for the foot. It is because of this that you should compliment them with two pairs of socks, as well as an insole – also according to the shell principle. And all of them, of course, should have the highest possible content of wool for the best comfort and performance.
We recommend that you always wear two pairs of socks in our boots. During the summer, use two pairs that are a bit thinner, and during the winter, use one thin pair and one thick pair. Using two pairs of socks allows friction to occur between the socks and not between the socks and skin. It’s a good way of reducing the risk of getting blisters! The thin sock closest to the foot is called the liner and serves the
same purpose as a base layer. It is made of soft and smooth Merino wool, which allows it to wick away moisture and provides warmth even if wet. The outer sock can be a thicker, warm sock, often with felt or terry cloth reinforcements on the bottom for maximum durability and for some extra cushioning.
Example: If you plan to walk on mostly soft surfaces when it is warm outside, begin with a liner (layer 1) and then an Outdoor Sock (layer 2) as shown.
1. sock layer 1
Start with a liner. It should be thin, smooth, tight and made of Merino wool.
2. sock layer 2
Padding – for comfort, greater durability and insulation.
