Running Socks

Womens Merino Wool Running Socks

Wilderness Wear has been manufacturing socks in Melbourne since 1989. Our 30+ years of knowledge means we know a thing or two about manufacturing high quality socks that are built to last. Whilst Wilderness Wear is known for producing hiking socks, we also manufacture a large range of merino wool and bamboo running socks that are perfect for recreational runners right through to ultra endurance athletes.

Unlike other brands our range features a higher % of merino wool and our merino is 100% Australian and is blended with nylon and lycra for durability. We’ve also created a fusion range which features Climayarn® technology a blend of 80% Climayarn® (3:2 ratio – Pure Australian Merino/Superfine Schoeller Polypropylene.

For those who suffer from blisters we’ve created the eXtreme range where our Blister Free™ system uses friction free Profilen® fibres in the heel and toes areas ensuring you enjoy blister-free running adventures. You can shop our entire range of Women’s blister free socks here.

The Wilderness Wear Xfit Xtreme Compression Socks are the only Australian made, technically advanced performance compression sock on the market. Featuring zoned breath-ability panels for maximum airflow and comfort. Seamless, gradient zoned compression panels for increased blood flow and maximum muscle containment for increased performance and enhanced recovery times.

Running Sock Range Features

WildernessWool™

Sourced from the highest grade merino wool from specific growers in Tasmania who have been selectively breeding sheep for generations. It is great that the provenance is clear and that a product range of this quality level can be truly referred to as completely Australian.

Profilen®

Profilen® is PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene). It has an extremely low friction coefficient. Profilen® yarns decrease friction to reduce the formation of blisters and abrasions and 5% of this yarn is added to our Merino wool eXtreme range of socks to ensure your running adventures are blister free.

Climayarn®

Merino Fusion Climayarn® provides multiple benefits including the elimination of sweat (rapid dry time), heat preservation at low temperatures and the prevention of heat caused by running in warmer temperatures. This blend really does combine the advantages of natural merino wool with the performance & strength of polypropylene.

Coolmax®

Coolmax® fibres are engineered to transport moisture away from the foot to keep you cool and dry during high aerobic and endurance activities.

Celliant®

Celliant recycles human energy. Heat emitted by the body is absorbed by the thermo-reactive minerals in the fibre. Transferred back as infrared light, it penetrates deep into the tissues to increase circulation, oxygen and blood flow.
