Japanese Trail Running Socks Medium

£30

Socks so snuggly yet rugged you’re going to want to marry them, go on a walking honeymoon somewhere cold and have fluffy little sock babies together.

They’re made by Syn Project in Nagano, Japan. This mountainous region has a rich history of walking trails, going back to the Samurai Nakasendo Trail, the main hiking route from Edo Tokyo over to Kyoto.

This history is sewn into every pair, embracing the brand’s philosophy of connecting with nature, and the value of a good walk for a healthy mind and body. Using centuries of walking wisdom, they’re designed and woven to expertly wrap and support the foot.

This running style is designed for higher-impact outdoor exercise: constructed from merino wool which is naturally temperature moderating, highly absorbent and breathable even if wet. Each element of the sock has been carefully considered. The toes and heels are made from a blend of wool, cotton and Japanese washi paper for added durability and softness on points of strain. The tabi style is intended to improve balance and help prevent falls. Elastic gives support to the arch and non-slip dots are sewn into the sole.

Meet you on the trail.
