7 Reasons Why Aussie Hikers Choose Paire Merino Socks 

Quality gear can make or break a hike, from the right backpack to reliable footwear. But here's a surprising truth: one often overlooked component can make a world of difference—the humble sock.

Picture this: you're on a breathtaking hike through the Australian wilderness. The sun shines, the breeze is gentle, and the trail stretches ahead. However, discomfort creeps in due to sweaty, uncomfortable socks.

At Paire, we're passionate about making every step of your hiking journey enjoyable. That's why we went back to the drawing board to design a pair of socks specifically for hikers.

So why are merino socks best for hiking?

1. No other socks are designed with hiking in mind.

Many people we speak to don't even pay much attention to the socks they wear when on hikes. 

They just accept that their feet get naturally sweaty and smelly. 

Even the most seasoned hikers are guilty of this too! 

Well, the good news is - your feet don't have to be naturally uncomfortable. 

Stay fresh, feel better, and make the most of your hiking adventures with Paire socks. 

Paire socks are thoughtfully and purposefully designed specifically with the most rigorous needs of hikers in mind, so you know you're good to go.

2. Experience comfort on the go.

Hiking isn't exactly the most physically comfortable activity out there. 

So why not take this simple step to make it less uncomfortable than it has to be? 

Paire socks are made of Aussie Merino wool (yes - it feels as good as it sounds), which means that you get a well-fitting and relaxed cut, natural breathability, and a super soft texture that feels great on your feet. 

Who says you have to leave the comforts of home behind to enjoy nature?

3. Work up a sweat without smelling bad.

One of the worst feelings while hiking is probably when your feet smell bad, and you know they smell bad, and there's nothing you can do about it. 

We're here to tell you that it's not a YOU problem. 

It's a SOCK problem, and we're here to fix it for you. 

Paire socks have a wondrous ability to regulate your foot temperature and are sweat-wicking, which means they don't soak up your sweat and smell terrible afterwards.

 4. Pack even lighter.

Perhaps you're accustomed to bringing multiple changes of socks to deal with the issue of smelling bad. 

Because let's face it - laundry isn't exactly an option when you're out in the wild, soaking in the mountains and the rivers. 

The problem with this, though, is that you end up packing too heavy. 

And as you know, when the miles add up, your backpack starts to feel a lot heavier. 

Paire socks last way longer than other socks in great condition, which makes them fit for prolonged or repeated use. 

With sweat-wicking and odor prevention qualities, they are great for minimal washing and thus ideal for lengthier hikes.

5. Weather any storm.

It is always a good idea to prepare for sudden weather changes, especially if you're on longer hikes. 

This usually means that you have to be prepared with different types of clothing to suit both hot and cool temperatures. 

With Paire socks, you no longer have to; they are perfect for all weather conditions, regardless of rain, shine, or humidity. 

The thermal regulation properties also help to keep your feet warm in the cold and cool in the heat. 

Keep things easy breezy with Paire socks!
