Merino Ankle Socks

A shorter version of our Merino running socks

Active feet need support. We think there’s no better material to provide it than Merino wool. Shaped by millennia of evolution, not only is it incredibly soft, but Merino also has an almost magical ability to remain warm in the cold and cool in the heat.

Providing excellent insulation and cushioning, its structure allows it to pull moisture away from the wearer. Cutting down the chances of your feet ending up cold or developing blisters, it’s also naturally able to manage bacteria.

Creating a fresh and hygienic environment, our socks are then reinforced in the heel, toe box and footbed for increased durability. With a hand-linked toe seam for greater comfort, these ankle-length versions are ideal for summer running.

Shaped by millennia of evolution, Merino wool is a sustainable, natural material with unparalleled properties. Further increasing its innate insulating, anti-odour, and wicking abilities, our Merino + Carbon fabric with 37.5 Technology sees carbon particles embedded permanently within its fibres. Allowing our fabric to convert liquid into vapour up to ten times faster than conventional alternatives, this facility imparts superlative temperature-regulating qualities. A permanent feature of our ethically-sourced Merino, its benefits remain undiminished over the lifespan of the product.

    Crafted using our stretch Merino + Carbon yarns, our Socks are an athletic fit. If you are between sizes, we advise going down one size.

    Great fit, comfort and looks

    These socks fit nicely, with just the right amount of elasticity around the ankles and arch. The fabric is comfortable and warm, and the colour is spot on. My only quibble is that they look quite loose around the toes, but this isn't a problem once you've put your shoes on!

    Nice socks, good fit too

    Great socks, and a good fit, not as long as the photo though as its been stretched by a quarter.

    Love these socks

    Very comfortable, even in long runs. Others have mentioned that they are thicker than previous versions: I would agree but find them more comfortable for it.

    Merino Ankle Socks - balance of feel and durability

    I've been wearing Ashmei ankle socks for years, through all their iterations. These latest versions are thicker around the toe and heel making them feel slightly cushioned, which is super comfortable on trails and uneven ground. Running in the Australian bush, they do feel marginally warmer than their predecessors, but the moisture handling is still as effective as I've come to expect, and post-run odour pretty much non-existant. What I think is key this time around is how the extra thickness feels more durable - for me, previous Ashmei socks always wore out first around my Achilles, but with these it looks like they've hit exactly the right combination of feel and durability.

    Socks for feet.

    I like these, chosen mainly because they are made of wool and Ashmei provides great service. They provide a repair service, but not sure if this includes for socks! The largest size fits my size 44 feet snugly without being too tight. Very comfortable.
