Yep, these socks really worked for us. After a strenuous 10 mile hike, the breathable mesh and wicking action found in these new Wrightsock Coolmesh II socks successfully kept our feet dry and cool… and voila, not a blister nor even a hint of one to be found. Apparently, one really can build a better sock. But there’s more to these socks than just the way they kept our feet dry and cool. The folks at Wrightsock have designed their socks with two layers: an outer layer that reacts to your foot’s friction against the shoe and an inner layer against your foot that stays smooth and frictionless. The friction on the outer layer doesn’t pass to the inner layer, so your foot doesn’t experience those forces that cause blisters. Wow, it makes so much sense now that we’ve experienced it. Great work Wrightsock!
