37% Nylon, 62% Polyester (COOLMAX®), 1% Elastane
The fibre composition details percentage by weight of each fibre contained in the sock. Technical socks often have a proportion of synthetic fibres such as nylon and elastane, as these provide durability and stretch to the sock. For a technical wool sock, you should expect around a 50% wool content.
Developed in 1986, Coolmax® is a technical fibre engineered to keep the wearer dry. The fibre’s unique cross section absorbs and pulls moisture away from the skin, transporting it down tiny grooves in its surface. Once the moisture spreads across a larger surface area, the rate of evaporation of that moisture increases. This effect helps keep your feet dry and cool. Coolmax® allows us to create socks that are soft and breathable; perfect for optimal sports performance in warmer weather.

An arch support is a band of elasticated fabric located half way down the foot. It is designed to improve the fit of the sock around your arch, allowing the fabric to closely follow the contours of your foot.
An ankle support is a band of elasticated fabric which goes around your ankle. It is designed to improve the fit of the sock around the ankle bone, preventing bunching at the heel.
Breathable Meshed Fabric
Hot and sweaty feet are something which everyone battles with, especially in active environments. Our breathable meshed fabric is constructed so that it increases airflow to and from the skin. This allows the warm air trapped beneath the sock to escape, being replaced by cooler air from outside the sock. To aid this breathability, we strongly advise wearing shoes that also have a breathable mesh.
Additional cushioning underfoot is used to increase the comfort and the durability of the sock. The terry loop pile fabric is constructed so This is perfect for when you’re up on your feet for an extended period of time and needing that extra level of support.
Comfort Linked Toe Seam
Bulky seams have no place in a sock designed for performance. The comfort linked toe seam is flat, so causes no irritation to the tops of your toes.

On the other hand, our competition sock has been specifically tailored for dressage and competitions.
