Review: Silverlight Hiking Socks

The Silverlight Hiking Socks utilize silver fibers in the fabric mix to create a bacteria- and odor-free sock with light compression for a comfortable fit without feeling too tight.

Silverlight Hiking Socks review

These Silverlight hiking socks have several features that I look for in a sock:

  • merino wool fabric blend for moisture wicking to keep my feet dry and blister-free
  • light compression to fit my feet without excess material and to keep them from slipping
  • a fit that’s not too tight so I can move my toes
  • seamless construction to eliminate rubbing hot spots on my feet

I’ve been wearing these socks on hikes and camping trips for the last several weeks to try them out. I really like the fit and durability… they are comfortable to wear, yet feel sturdier than most socks for long-term durability. And I can attest that the silver fibers keep them from smelling bad after wearing for several days while hiking. 🙂
