Hikers Wool or Merino Toe Socks? The best blister prevention options for hiking and running the trails
Read on for reasons for and against, the reasons for putting wool between your toes and our recommendations for Wool toe sock and hiking wool
Let customers speak for us
I brought Creepers and non-wool toe socks for walking the 500-mile Camino Frances across Northern Spain. I absolutely love the feel of Creepers - they are like a sift hug. I have worn the sane pair for 3 days in a row and they perform the same in each day. I will no longer be hiking in my other brand if socks.
I've got 7 pairs and wear them everywhere. Work, on my feet 8hrs a day, yoga, trekking through river's for 5hrs, alpine walking 4days. Have told everyone about these socks including my podiatrist. I don't get blisters anymore or sore ties. They fit perfectly.
Love Creepers - replaced the need to wrap my toes in sheep’s wool for long tramps. Creepers does the job
I love Creepers! I've had Injinji for a long time, but these have replaced them as my favorite. They are softer and keep my feet cooler. They wick moisture very well. I wish they had more colors. That is my review.
Really comfy and, for the first time ever, I didn't get blisters on my little toes after a multi-day hike:-)
(Have tried using plasters, blister pacs, wool packing, double socks, even bought new boots in the past!)
I will not run in any other socks now that Ive found these. I ordered some maybe last year and they are still in great condition, but only just starting to show the wear and tear. So I recently ordered more. Happy to say they are still the same fit and excellent quality. Please dont ever change - you have found the secret sauce!
These socks are un like most. Dont be intimidated by change. I have had them for over a month now and quickly have become my favorite pair to wear specifically the crew length for my runs and quarter crew for everydayuse. I ran an earthday 50k last week with them and my feet had not even a blemish im amazed i need to purchase more so i dont have to do the laundry every 2 days
After trying numerous remedies for blister prevention, these socks are the only thing that work for me! Super comfortable and light weight, highly recommend.
First time use was on a 40-mile trail ultra. I didn't have time to change socks as I'd planned for the 20 mile loop 1/2 way point, so kept running. No blistering at end of race, although they were difficult to get off after the race. Not a sock issue, just couldn't reach my feet.
Just walked over 1000kms (South Island of NZ) in a single pair of these socks, through rivers and mud, in sweltering heat and also snow, and sometimes without washing for a week at a time. They have been incredible! No blisters between toes (the ones on my heels were from new shoes) and only now are they showing signs of wear under the big toe and ball of my feet. I've added hikers wool to the thinning areas to extend their life a bit more.
In my 70's and 250 miles on trail, these things are taking care of my old feet. No blisters for me, while others are stuggling.
I was skeptical about these socks, but they are soft on my feet and I didn’t have the problems with my sensitive toes. No rubbing!
I love my Creeper socks. They fit true to size and wear well. They keep my feet happy when I hike because my second toe is longer than the first and regular socks put pressure on the end of the toe making it painful on long backpacking trips. I have worn Injinji toe socks and these are even better, I’ll definitely buy again.
I wore these the first time during a 40 mile trail ultra. I didn't have enough time at the 1/2 point to change socks to meet the cutoff, so continued on. No blisters after 11 hours of running. Yes I'm slow! Great socks!
Have worn other brands. Creepers ARE better! It’s as if the foot part is a light compression so the socks stay in place and my feet don’t “swim” in the socks. Other brands stretched more so felt too loose unless washed daily. I don’t need to wash creepers daily! Merino keeps them smell free. In fact I just bought new ski boots and creeper crew sock is now my ski sock too!
