How does compression help on hikes?
Hiking socks with compression work like the original medical products: They feature dense fabric and apply pleasant pressure to your ankles and calves.
Improved circulation: The gradual compression from the ankle to the calf improves circulation and helps transport oxygen and nutrients to your muscles faster. Your legs feel fresh and fatigue less quickly – perfect for long hikes.
Stabilization: Compression socks stabilize muscles and joints, which is a tremendous advantage, especially when hiking on uneven terrain. They reduce muscle vibrations and lower the risk of muscle cramps and injuries.
Perfect stay-put fit: Hiking socks with compression feature a wrinkle-free, snug design that helps prevent blisters and pressure points from forming while you hike.

TECH-TALK: Hiking socks with compression
How does compression help prevent blisters from forming?
Long hikes in particular are true stress tests for our bodies and our clothing because the permanent friction in the shoe paired with moisture act like an accelerator for blisters. CEP compression technology ensures these hiking socks fit your feet like a glove. The fit is exactly the same in the evening when you end your hike as it was in the morning when you started. Wrinkles, the main cause of skin irritation, are virtually impossible thanks to this technology.
Why should I wear compression socks instead of conventional socks when hiking?
Compared to regular socks, compression socks offer you much more comfort and protection while hiking. The compressive fit stimulates blood flow and keeps your legs feeling light and fresh. It also stabilizes your joints. But that’s not all. medi’s innovative compression improves body awareness, in this case proprioception in your ankles, and increases the accuracy of your footwork – which is essential, especially in challenging terrain.
Why add merino wool to hiking socks?
The CEP COMPRESSION HIKING SOCKS combine the natural heat and moisture management properties of merino wool with high-quality synthetic fibers for unmatched wearing comfort. They keep your feet warm when it’s cold out and they effectively wick away moisture when you sweat, keeping your feet cool and dry at all times. Another advantage: Merino wool neutralizes odors and is easy to care for.
How can I find the right CEP hiking socks for my hiking boots?
When choosing the right CEP COMPRESSION HIKING SOCKS, be sure to use your boots and your level of performance as a guide. Hiking shoes or boots are available in a range of categories that vary depending on use and terrain. Hiking shoes and boots are categorized by the stiffness of the soles, the type of material and the functionality of the shoes. Within this overall grouping, the footwear is further broken down into categories from “A”, which is the lowest to “D”, which is the highest.
How do I determine the right size for my CEP hiking socks?
Ensuring a good fit plays a key role in assuring comfort and preventing blisters while hiking. Compression socks should not be selected based on shoe size alone. It’s also important to measure the circumference of the calves to ensure pleasant compression and the optimum effect. It’s vital to make sure the socks have a firm fit but do not pinch. By the same token, they should not be too loose to prevent wrinkles from forming. If you choose to buy your new CEP COMPRESSION HIKING SOCKS online, use the size chart to find the right size. If the measurement is between two sizes, we recommend trying on the smaller size first. It’s essential to try new hiking socks on with your hiking boots to ensure they fit perfectly and offer you maximum comfort.
