These socks are basically the same as the Brasher Naturale Trail Mens Walking Socks but are just shorter and probably more suitable for trail running or for boots which don’t provide so much support around the ankle area.
Brasher Naturale Trail Mens Short walking socks have been made from yarns from bamboo. In total 35% of the sock is made from the bamboo viscose yarn, 44% polyester, 19% nylon, 1% elastane and 1% lycra. The bamboo is naturally cooling while the sock has a ventilation panel on the top of the foot – particularly good for the summer months.
As you would expect with a Brasher walking sock there are three padded areas on the heel, toe and ball. These can be seen in the images where I’ve turned the sock inside out. Even though the sock is designed for two seasons (spring and summer) they are not too light to not provide any protection to the foot.
The pair pictured is the short version which is ideal for when you are wearing walking shoes. So the sock just reaches past the ankle.
The stand out feature of the socks, however, is how soft to touch they are, even softer than some of my merino wool socks. With the summer months coming and hopefully some nice days the Brasher Naturale are certainly a comfortable and eco-friendly option.
