Wrightstock Escape Silver Crew

Best blister fighter sock from the Fall/Winter 2018 Gear Guide.

Brand: Wrightstock

Model: Escape Silver Crew


Deep snow and early-season slop can mean wet, blister-prone feet. But after our tester’s Escapes became soggy on an overnight snow- shoe to Olympic Hot Springs in Washington, she didn’t worry. Double- layer construction—the outer sock and an inner liner are fused at the toe—reduces rubbing, and she made it back to camp with her feet in good shape. Bonus: The inner sock contains silver threads (5 percent) that eliminate odor-causing bacteria. Silver also reflects heat, so this thin sock is warmer than it appears.


“My feet were soaked after the hot springs, but my toes stayed toasty the entire time in 25°F weather,” our tester says.

Weight: 1.5 oz.

Sizes: m’s M-XL, w’s S-L
