Product Information

7/11 - PLEASE NOTE GREY/ORANGE IS NEW COLOURWAY COMING IN AS BLACK RUNS OUT. SEE IMAGE.

Blisters on the feet are the most common sports injury and seem inevitable when running ultra long distances, especially on trails because of the rough and uneven footing. One study in the Journal of Sports Medicine 2004;38:498-501 reported that up to 39% of marathon runners experienced foot blisters while running marathons. It is impossible to run enough training miles a week to condition feet not to get blisters for ultra long distance of 100+ miles. Runners have tried everything to prevent blisters including Vaseline®, skin lubricants, powders and tape. These may help for a short period of time, but are not effective over long distances.

While distance running, feet get hot and perspire, causing wicking fiber socks to become wet. Moisture weakens the skin and significantly increases friction (stickiness) between socks and skin. The higher the friction, the greater the chance of getting blisters. Higher friction limits skin surface movement, but still allows inner tissue movement causing a shearing effect. Shearing physically separates the two skin layers which fill with fluid, forming a blister.

The Maximum Protection Trail Running socks help prevent blisters during trail marathons and ultra-long distance trail runs. In addition, they are great for people who are prone to getting blisters. The patented Blister Guard® system incorporates Friction Free® ePTFE fibers in the entire foot area of the sock.

Drymax Max Pro Trail Running Socks are a High Density protective padded sock. Dense padding is used, as opposed to thick padding, as it protects feet without adversely affecting the fit of the shoes. The Max Pro Trail Running Socks were designed for use in Cold to Hot conditions, keeping feet dry, comfortable and odor free all day long.

The only socks you'll ever need

I run exclusively in these Max Protection Trail socks as they look after my feet like nothing else. I run ultramarathons on trails and train from 10kms upwards on hard trail, beaches, bitumen and whatever is in my way...these socks have kept me blister free for over 4 years. I love the dense nature, so they are comfortable without being springy - they don't squash down and become uncomfortable on longer runs. They keep my feet dry like no other sock I have tried. I can be running through a stream one minute and have dry feet within the hour. They are incredibly hard wearing and tough, giving excellent value for money. The oldest pair I have (probably ran over 2000kms in them, is not significantly different from my newest pair with only a few 100kms in them. When you're running a long way you need to focus on your gear from the ground up, and your socks are you point of contact with the ground. Running at 170 strides a minute, for 24+ hours, your feet will be given a hard time, but these socks offer a comfort and protection that is second to none. If you want dry, blister free feet then you must get you feet in these :)
