Olympus Has Risen

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hiking Hussy from Montana on Thursday, February 25, 2016
These socks are bad- as in good. Good socks. Awesomely bad. Buy them for their badness.


Threads: these BAD boys breathe. Look at that vent on the top of the foot! Look at the padding in the heel and toe! Keen claims they are stronger than STEEL and they will replace them if they wear out. Bad, I say, bad! As in good.

Cut: Toe rubs? Not here- these are made with NO seems to keep the hardworking tootsies free of the blisters. A low-top cuff allows for some hardcore move-ability in the ankle area and a good dose of 'dude my ankles aren't hot' while really working hard.

Color: I got the bright blue. Nobody's gonna miss my kicks coming down that dirt trail. I rock the bright pink and orange Salomons with bright blue socks. Best dressed hiking hussy coming down the line.

Conclusion: Don't miss out on these for your toughest trail crawls. I plan on using these socks for all 211 miles of the John Muir trail in August. With the way these are made, I have no worries concerning my feet.
