# Why do I need specific socks for hiking?
Our hiking socks are both warm and comfortable, thanks to the use of merino wool. Wool is the only fabric which remains a source of warmth even when moist. These socks are an excellent choice for your hikes and treks.
Hiking is becoming increasingly more popular thanks to the incredible views and sensations it has to offer. Whether you are going for a long walk, trek or run, in the mountains, forest or along one of the many hiking trails in France and across the world, having the right attire is essential.
