FROM THE VALLEY TO THE SUMMIT: COMFORT AND FUNCTIONALITY FOR YOUR FEET
Comfortable, technical merino socks for long alpine tours
Our new ALPINIST MID socks are the perfect companions for your mountain, climbing or alpine tours. Why? Simple: fine Merino wool reduces unpleasant foot odors, while synthetic fibers extend durability.
And the ALPINIST MID will also impress with its fit. Thanks to the ergonomically optimized right/left socks and the pleasant comfort cuff, it will fit perfectly without slipping. Ankle and arch supports also prevent creasing and keeps the socks where they belong. There is additional padding in the heel and toe area for good cushioning. Greater breathability is ensured by the 360-degree webbing system that runs around the foot area, as well as the cushioning system at sensitive points.
This makes the ALPINIST the ideal companion for your feet, whether in the valley or on demanding tours.
THE NATURAL PARADISE OF TASMANIA
100% of the merino wool from this collection comes from the Australian island of Tasmania. The wool from this natural paradise is high-quality, thin, and tear-resistant. But just as important for us, this material is ethically and ecologically sound. We have very high expectations of the farmers. A large portion of their working time is committed to ensuring sustainable farm management and animal welfare.
We have been using merino wool in our mountain wear layers since 1988, and we are the originators of functional wool apparel for mountain sports. The protection of people and animals has always been the central focus of all ORTOVOX activities.
