After a few miles on the trail the thick laces of hiking shoes can become a pain. The Point6 Hiking Tech Midmweight Mini Crew Sock has cushioning on the top of the instep in order to protect your feet from uncomfortable pressure, and its naturally breathable and odor-resistant merino wool is not only soft but rugged enough for long or short wilderness treks.

  • A deep heel pocket hugs the heel without binding the sock across your instep and toes, causing your foot to cramp
  • A touch of spandex adds some stretch so your toes can move freely
  • Ventilation panels on the instep allow hot air to move away from your foot so you stay cool on hot days
  • Reinforced toe and heel construction minimizes the chance of seam blowouts at inopportune times

Midweight and ankle height

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

This is exactly what i was looking for. I tried many other midweight hiking socks. They were all crew height and since i have a thick calf, the socks were putting a lot of pressure. This is perfect, just above my ankle and provides good cushioning for my all leather books.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

Conventional wisdom suggests that a high top boot gives the ankle support, control, and comfort needed for big days of approaches and scrambling in the high country. However, at the suggestion of some friends who knew better, I gave running shoes a try earlier this season. Instead of the pain and misery I feared, my feet stayed dryer, were more comfortable, and felt better than they do after being hossed around after a big mileage day in large boots.

And despite the lightweight approach on the shoe, I still like a fully functioning, medium cushion hiking sock. The Mini Crew is a perfect solution. It takes the durability and comfort from the Tech Crew into a size that functions well with the runners I've been using.

Impressively, point6 don't seem to pick up the same level of foot sweat that I've seen in the past--both in traditional boots and lighter, more breathable footwear. They've also dried out nicely during use after being soaked by 'shwacking through wet shrubberies at the beginning of the day. Something about the weave on these keeps them from swelling as much as other brands when they're wet.

My size 9 feet always end up near the break between medium and large. Through multiple manufacturers, I've found that trying them on is best if your feet are on the fence size wise.

Happy Feet!

    I bought these because I was tired of going through other socks after a couple of months of trail running. I have yet to wear these out. Not to mention I have not had a blister since switching to Point 6 socks for running and hiking around the Colorado Rockies.

    Best Darn Sock

      I currently own 6 pair of Point6. in hot/humid mid-atlantic summer I have never had a blister. in subfreezing back country, never a cold toe. Quality far exceeds SmartWool, EuroSocks, Bridgedale which I have also owned. thanks to BC for carrying such a wonderful product.
