Jack Wolfskin Sandal Socks / Sandal sock

Jack Wolfskin Sandal Socks

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Combining the convenience and airy wearing comfort of hiking sandals with shoe-like protection and resistance ˗ this was our goal when re-thinking the approach to sandal socks. The result: a sock that complements sandals by protecting against dust, rocks and abrasion with the unique Mud-Guard feature. The patented Lambertz-protector and HD-Pressure Points reduce friction and pressure, while the Biosplit-Footbed enhances stability and ventilation of the sole of the foot. The functional design integration into the sandal construction creates an overall unobtrusive new look for socks in sandals.
