Dahlgren: Outstanding Socks for Blister-Free Hiking

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Looking for a great pair of performance socks for blister-free hiking and other activities?  Look no further than Dahlgren Footwear socks.

I am an avid hiker and backpacker…I can tell you that nothing will suppress your enjoyment more than developing a blister five miles into a ten mile hike.  It’s so important to prepare and protect your feet before you venture out for a long hike or backpacking trip.  Developing blisters can be extremely painful and debilitating…fortunately, they can be minimize, if not prevented all together.  Of course you need a proper fitting pair of boots/shoes, but the single most important item is without question, a really good pair of moisture-wicking socks.

I have tried a number of pairs of socks over the years…always in search of a better pair—I think my search may finally be over after discovering Dahlgren Socks.   My initial impression of Dahlgren was one of delight.  The Dahlgren Footwear socks almost feel fitted, just for my feet…amazingly comfortable.  Comfort is certainly nice, but how would they preform?  In a word…spectacularly.

I have to say, the Dahlgren socks seem to be some of the most advanced performance socks I’ve come across…made of several different materials that separate the foot into various zones.  Made of Merino wool, nylon, alpaca and spandex, the socks absorb, then transfer moisture away from the foot…effectively keeping them drier and blister-free.  Dahlgren even has a patent on their high-tech line of performance socks for their Dri Stride zone construction.

For those interested in “buying American,” you’ll be happy to know that Dahlgren Footwear is a family-owned company and their socks are manufactured in Iowa…the heartland of America.
