When the trail is less of a trail and more of a series of cairns strewn through a scree field, make sure you have a pair of Icebreaker Men's Hike Heavy Crew Socks to cradle your feet over miles of rocky terrain. Merino wool helps regulate your temperature so your feet don't overheat, and with merino's natural antimicrobial properties, these socks aren't going to get overly stinky on multi-day trips. Heavy cushion throughout the socks keep your feet going, and support at the Achilles tendon and instep helps prevent bunching.
