Checkered Merino Sock


It is fair to say that the Checkered Sock was our first foray into the sock doping game. It is also fair to say that it became an instant classic. Managing to blend style and performance in equal measure, the Checkered Sock became a firm favourite with runners and cyclists alike.  Offering a slightly longer 6″ cut than its Stripe stablemate, the Checkered Sock not only looks exceptional, it performs exceptionally as well. This is all down to the design detail. The hand-linked toe seam makes for a flush finish, which in turn makes for a more comfortable run. Where it really wins out though is in the choice of fabric. Our signature MERINO + CARBON with 37.5® Technology fabric blend provides the sock with excellent thermo-regulation and wicking properties – crucial around the feet where hot spots and blisters can form.
