How Does Compression Help On Hikes:
Compression socks for hiking offer the same benefits of medical compression socks. CEP combines the compression technology used for medi’s medical compression garments with additional features suited for the sport of hiking.
Improved circulation: The gradual compression from the ankle to the calf improves circulation and helps transport oxygen and nutrients to your muscles faster. Your legs feel fresh and fatigue less quickly – perfect for long hikes.
Stabilization: Compression socks stabilize muscles and joints, which is a tremendous advantage, especially when hiking on uneven terrain. They reduce muscle vibrations and lower the risk of muscle cramps and injuries.
Perfect stay-put fit: Hiking socks with compression feature a wrinkle-free, snug design that helps prevent blisters and pressure points from forming while you hike.
When hiking, choosing the right socks plays a crucial role in comfort. Hiking without the right hiking socks is like sunbathing without sunscreen - it's only good for a while. So that this doesn't happen to you, CEP has developed the right socks for every hiking shoe - and in different lengths. The use of the CEP COMPRESSION HIKING SOCKS is based on the official mountain shoe categories from A to D. Find the right CEP COMPRESSION HIKING SOCKS for your hiking shoe now and start your mountain adventure.
The LIGHT MERINO COMPRESSION SOCKS were specially developed for light hiking shoes with flexible soles. The optimized ventilation on the sock shaft improves air circulation in the hiking boot. The high-quality merino wool ensures ideal climate management and keeps your feet pleasantly cool even on warm days. The precisely placed padding zones on the foot part offer targeted support and ensure a comfortable fit, even on longer hikes.
From the local mountain to multi-day tours - the MERINO COMPRESSION SOCKS were specially developed for medium to high hiking shoes with stiffer soles to offer you the best wearing comfort even on demanding hikes. The socks have medium padding that provides comfortable cushioning and effective protection.
The MAX CUSHION COMPRESSION SOCKS are perfect for your next summit ascent. They offer you reliable support and full comfort and are particularly suitable as protection in mountain boots with stiff soles, as they provide additional padding and support. The material thickness also makes them ideal for use at higher altitudes. These socks are made of high-quality materials and ensure optimal climate regulation and perfect moisture management to stay dry and comfortable even in extreme weather conditions.
How does compression help prevent blisters?
Long hikes in particular are an endurance test for body and material, because the permanent friction in the shoe combined with moisture is the ideal fire accelerator for blisters. Thanks to the compression technology, the CEP hiking socks fit the foot like a second skin. At the end of the tour, you are just as comfortable in the evening as you were in the morning. Wrinkling, the main cause of skin irritation, is almost impossible due to the technology.
Why should I wear compression socks instead of conventional socks when hiking?
Compression socks offer you significantly more comfort and protection when hiking compared to conventional hiking socks. The compressive seat promotes blood circulation and ensures light legs for longer. In addition, your joints are stabilized. But that is not all. The innovative medi compression improves your body's self-awareness, in this case your ankles, and increases sure-footedness - which is particularly beneficial in demanding terrain.
Why merino wool in hiking socks?
The CEP COMPRESSION HIKING SOCKS combine the natural climate properties of merino wool with high-quality synthetic fibers for a particularly comfortable fit. When it's cold, they keep your feet warm, and when you're sweating, they wick away moisture effectively, keeping your feet dry and at a comfortable temperature. Another advantage: Merino wool neutralizes odors and is easy to care for.
How do I find the right CEP hiking socks for my hiking boots?
When choosing the right CEP COMPRESSION HIKING SOCKS, you should consider your shoe and your performance level. Hiking shoes or mountaineering boots are available in different categories, which vary depending on the area of use and terrain. The categorization of mountaineering boots is based on the stiffness of the sole, the type of material and the function of the shoe. Within this division, a distinction is made from "A", the simplest category, to "D" as the highest category.
How do I determine the right size for my CEP hiking socks?
A good fit of the hiking socks is crucial for comfort and avoidance of blisters while hiking. Compression socks should not only be tailored to the shoe size, but also to the calf circumference in order to ensure a comfortable pressure and an optimal effect. It is important to make sure that the socks are snug but not dig in, nor are they too loose to avoid wrinkling. If you want to buy your new CEP COMPRESSION HIKING SOCKS online, the size chart will help you find the right size. If you are between sizes, it is advisable to try the smaller size first. It's important to always try new hiking socks on with your hiking boots to ensure they fit perfectly and provide optimal comfort.
