1000 Mile Heat Walk Sock | Review

These are soon to become your favourite socks

Socks may seem like a fairly miscellaneous item when it comes to choosing your hiking and trekking gear but you’ll know as well as we do – through daily use of the things – that there are few things worse than having to worry about socks while you’re walking, whether that be because they’re uncomfortable, don’t sit right or just aren’t appropriate for the great outdoors.

The 1000 Mile Heat Walk Sock is the outdoor sock to wear when it comes to walking in cold conditions.

Using patented, environmentally-friendly Nilit Heat yarn to provide maximum comfort and performance when it’s chilly outside, the sock ensures that you won’t get cold feet (literally, at least) on your walk, and detailed padding adds extra warmth whilst protecting the feet.

The yarn is actually created with coffee charcoal, integrating the natural surplus from the bean shells with a nylon fibre for natural insulation. This means that not only do you get warm feet from these socks, you also get a strange little antidote if anyone, for one reason or another, happens to ask about your socks.

The inner layer of the Heat Walk Sock wicks sweat away and is highly breathable, and top venting allows the foot to breathe while you’re making your way through the cold (which if you live in Britain, could be near enough any day of the year).

“They’re socks that mean you’re able to forget what socks you’re wearing, and because of that they’ll soon be your favourite socks in the drawer.”

A double-layer construction eliminates friction between the foot and the shoe, meaning that these socks also last longer than your average and will keep those blisters away for longer.


Let’s not lie, we all have our favourite socks. The socks that you hope to see clean every time you open your sock drawer and the first ones you wear after a fresh wash.

The 1000 Mile socks are exactly that. They’re socks that are built for purpose. They’re socks that keep your feet warm and keep you comfortable all day long. They’re socks that mean you’re able to forget what socks you’re wearing, and because of that, particularly when you’re preparing for a hike, they’ll soon be your favourite socks in the drawer.

“I wore these socks on a day hike through a group of forests and lochs near Kingussie. The socks were definitely comfortable. You could feel the padding when you walked and they seemed to be tick-proof too – we walked through our fair share of heather and came out unscathed! Seriously though, other than the time I accidentally stepped in a full-on bog, these were comfortable to wear, warm and kept me walking. No complaints here. A good hiking sock, particularly in colder conditions.”  – OM Editor, Will Renwick.
