Nia Jenkins gives us her Bridgedale Womens WoolFusion Trekker Socks Review . . .
Designed for all year round use by the regular or dedicated outdoor enthusiast. Unique Bridgedale construction ensures dry, warm and comfortable feet.
I’ve been reviewing the Bridgedale Womens WoolFusion Trekker Socks for a few months now and I’ve been very impressed with the quality of them. I spend a lot of my time in hiking boots so having a good pair of socks is a must for staying comfortable, especially on long days on the mountains. I’ve always been a fan of Bridgedale socks and I was excited to review their new range because I was aware that they had a few new features.
To start with they are very lightweight and just feel like a normal pair of socks rather than thick, heavy hiking socks. I love how breathable they are – the woolfusion has a unique construction and therefore they always feel light and dry at all times. They are made up of Enduro Wool – and this is what guarantees the softness, quality and durability.
The material also controls the thermal balance and moisture control properties, explaining why they are so breathable. There’s nothing worse than sweaty/wet feet on a long hike so I was especially impressed with the material and breathability of these socks. Hand on my heart – the best socks I’ve ever worn, breathability wise!
The WoolFusion Trekker Socks are advertised as ‘all year round’ pair of socks and I definitely agree with that. Because of the difference in texture, density and cushioned like sections the socks keep the right part of your feet warm when they need to be but also allow maximum breathability when and where needed too. I’ve been wearing them during Winter and Spring and they worked effectively throughout both seasons for me.
The socks are made up of different sections, ensuring the best comfort for each part of the feet. The highest part of the socks (around the ankles) are thin and slim but the material below the ankles and around the feet is much more cushioned and supportive. This feature makes the socks a lot more ‘bouncy’ to walk on and makes you feel as though you have lovely cushioned insoles inside your boots!
Another thing I like about these socks are that they’re shorter than the usual bridgedale style – this makes them a little more spring/summer friendly and look nicer if you’re wearing them with shorts.
To finish, I know hiking socks can be a bit a bit pricey sometimes but I think that £12 for these is a bargain considering how diverses and comfortable they are. If you’re looking for a lighweight, breathable and comfy pair of trekking socks – go buy the Bridgedale Womens WoolFusion Trekker Socks, I can’t fault them!
