Review

I’ve tried so many different types of socks and hiked many miles testing out different pairs for that perfect balance between comfort and durability. So why the New Balance flat knit no show socks?

 

Why the New Balance flat knit no show socks?

They’re made to last and are very well fitted. Reviews say they’re really good for hikers with small feet, just like me. My feet are flat and wide and these give some extra support for hiking extra miles. They’re really tough as well, after hiking a good few hundred miles in them they’re still going strong with no holes or bobbles. On the Welsh 3,000s it was incredibly hot and my feet did get pretty warm in them, but they were good at wicking off in my Altra Lone Peak 4.0s.

 

Value for money

At £13 a pair, they’re not budget socks, but you can tell you’re purchasing a premium product designed for performance and comfort.
