Care for your feet with Merino running socks 

The perfect running outfit starts from the bottom up. Squished into your shoes and repeatedly striking the ground, running can give your feet a hard time. Add in navigating conditions from warm and sweaty to cold and clammy, and, unsurprisingly, your feet can sometimes complain about their treatment. 

Insulating them from changes in temperature and weather, along with dampening jarring vibrations, Merino wool goes further than any other material to ensure your feet remain happy. 

In the same way our Merino tops and jerseys can quickly wick away moisture, ashmei’s Merino socks help create a stable and comfortable environment around your toes. 

Used in everything from our jackets downwards, our Merino + Carbon fabric takes the natural qualities of Merino and improves them. With silica permanently woven into the material itself, this addition helps our socks convert liquid into vapour up to ten times faster than conventional alternatives.

Helping keep feet dry and at a steady temperature, drier feet result in less rubbing and fewer blisters, while the ability to manage sweat makes for both comfort in summer and warmer toes in winter. 

Soft from the moment you pull them on, besides its insulating qualities, the structure of Merino’s natural fibres will also ingest odour causing bacteria. Holding onto them until popped into the wash, the result is a more hygienic environment for your feet, plus fresher socks and shoes. 

Made of renewable wool, our Merino socks are also as gentle on the environment as they are on your feet. From requiring only lower-temperature washing to biodegrading at the end of their lifespan, they’ll lessen the impact of running on both wearer and planet. 

THE ASHMEI DIFFERENCE

While our socks get unanimously good reviews from our athletes, most don’t put them to quite as extreme use as the On the Shoulders of Giants rowing team. Employing a range of Ashmei’s Merino products as they compete to row across the Atlantic our socks proved particularly popular with the crew. So popular that rower Rauri Hadlington found time to sing their praises during a snatched satellite phone as the team battled for the lead in the Talisker Atlantic Challenge somewhere between the Canary Islands and Antigua. 

“The socks have been amazing, an absolute must-have. Your feet are one of the big contact points on the boat. None of us has had any issues with blisters or worse. They’re the one thing we’re all wearing at the same time. It helps that they dry really quickly and stay soft even when washed in salt water. The fact we can clip them to the rail of the boat and have them dry so fast has been really valuable”. 

Wear them to walk, train, race, or row across the Atlantic. We don’t think you’ll find a better pair. 

Versatile enough for sporting use, stylish enough to pair with smarter shoes, ours are built with a hand-linked toe seam for greater comfort plus reinforced carbon strands in the heel, toe box, and footbed. Available in two lengths along with several patterns, from subtle stripes to morale-boosting polka dots, each pair promises to be the first step towards the perfect outfit.
