The 5 Best Trail Run Socks

De 5 Beste Trail Run Sokken

Your wonderful trail running shoes also need good trail running socks. What are the best trail running socks of the moment? Here is our preference.

1. Compressport Pro Racing Socks Trail V4.0

High-tech trail running socks that protect your feet, absorb shock and support you during your toughest off-road challenges. Trail running is not road running. Feet must constantly flex and adapt to ever-changing terrain, and footwear must keep up with the pace. The 4th generation Pro Racing Socks Trail is designed with shock absorption and protection in mind. The Compressport technologies have been further developed to support all your off-road adventures. A trail-specific weave around the forefoot and lower leg is firm but breathable, quickly wicking away moisture to prevent irritation.

Recommended retail price: 17.95 euros

2. INOV8 Trailfly Sock Mid

The Trailfly Sock from Inov-8 is designed for long runs on uneven trails, providing comfort and protection where you need it most. With targeted cushioning underfoot to protect on unpredictable terrain and a snug fit, this sock is so comfortable you'll feel like you could run forever. The highly breathable, moisture-wicking fabric has ventilated panels around the midfoot, keeping the foot dry and comfortable. And to make it even better, the socks are made from 68% recycled material.

Recommended retail price: 26.95 euros (2-pack)

3. Compressport Ultra Trail Socks

The Ultra Trail socks were originally designed for the UTMB, but are also widely worn during other trails around the world. Based on the Pro Racing Socks Trail, they offer a reinforced Achilles band for increased stable support. Multiple 3D dots absorb maximum shock and vibration from the changing terrain, but also prevent bruises on the inside of the leg. In the toe area it is extra reinforced and padded to protect toes and nails on brutal, technical descents. In the center and at the front, the dots in combination with a 360-degree support arc prevent the material from twisting, reducing the risk of blisters and providing greater stability.

Recommended retail price: 19.95 euros

4. Injinji Trail Mini Crew

Designed and cushioned for quick movement over varying, uneven terrain, the Trail Midweight Mini-Crew delivers comfort and protection with agility and support. Form-fitting, but not binding, the double-cuffed mini-crew height locks out grit and debris. COOLMAX® EcoMade fibers wick away moisture, nylon is durable and Lycra® maintains the fit. Arch support is built in, mesh on the upper provides breathability and our unique design wraps fabric around each toe to minimize blisters, better wick away moisture and give you the freedom to use your whole foot on narrow, rugged trails during training runs and ultramarathons.

Recommended retail price: 17.95 euros

5. Injinji Trail Crew

This is the sock for long runs and aggressive runs on rough terrain. Our toe sock design minimizes friction between the toes to prevent blisters, allows the toes to spread naturally and lets you use your entire foot on narrow, uneven trails. The length of the shoe rises high to seal out debris, and a strap under the arch provides extra support. COOLMAX® fibers and a mesh upper keep feet dry and cool, nylon fibers provide durability and lightweight cushioning protects your feet.

Recommended retail price: 18.95 euros
