The Icebreaker Men's Hike+ Lite Anatomical Mini Crew Sock is the go-to choice for long days spent on the trails. Support zones help protect your ankle and Achilles, strategic cushioning areas take the sting out of rugged terrain, and the six-inch height pairs well with low or mid-high boots.

  • Merino wool blend utilizes a nylon core yarn that is fully wrapped in merino, which means super soft wool is the only thing touching your skin
  • Merino naturally manages moisture, foot temperature, and odor for all-day comfort
  • Anatomically shaped to match the male foot profile for a perfect fit
  • Six-inch sock height is ideal for low- to mid-profile hiking boots
  • Achilles, ankle, and instep support areas help reduce injury on uneven terrain
  • Medium cushion in high-impact zones helps to absorb shock and increase comfort
  • Mesh ventilation zones on the top of the foot aid in cooling
  • Flat LIN toe seam reduces bulk and increases comfort in hiking boots

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are great. They are slightly thinner than I was expecting, but I like them .

Great Socks.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used several times, mountain biking, gym, and as daily use. Enjoyed the fit and support so much that i ended up buying several pairs. I had my son purchase a pair and he is very happy as well.

Happy feet

Super soft and comfortable. Holding shape and size after many uses. Great socks over all!

Just exactly right

    Wanted an ankle height sock for tromping around trails in Scotland. Had to be durable, cushy, easy to wash in sink. Check plus on all dimensions .... These will work and last for quite a while.

    i like em a lot

      Tough socks! i wear them hiking and just around town. They saved my feet when my water shoes started to give me blisters too.

      • Size Bought: Medium

      Didn't think I'd need socks much on a Euro trip in summer, but ended up wearing them as my only pair for about 6 weeks of hiking in mountains and walking around big cities. Washed them in the sink twice that whole time. They weren't delectable after that, but most other socks wouldn't have even held up to what I put them through. A nice, gentle wash when I got home, and they were as good as new. Perfect height for low shoes and really lightweight for their thickness. The cushion was in all the right areas for me too. No complaints from me. Maybe my travel companions would say otherwise. Nice pair to add to your arsenal or bring as a one hitter quiver on trips.

      Awesome Socks

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I gifted these to a friend and here's what he had to say.

      I have found Icebreaker to be the most durable merino socks around. These ones are pretty thick. I have the "ultralight" ones as well, and they have lasted several years now, so my expectations is that these thick ones last forever

      I want to become an icebreaker spokesman

      These are the best socks i've ever owned from their lightweight to ultraheavyweight. Keep my feet going for miles and miles.

      Great support with every step!

      Looking for a great sock that will last a crazy amount of time and give you the support you need that cotton lacks? This is the option you should be looking at! The sock will be great no matter what activity you decide to participate in. It will keep your feet warm under any circumstance and will support your arch like you never felt before! I have had these things for over 2 years and they still feel the same as they did when I first purchased them! I never thought I could say I love a sock, but I definitely love these!
