I normally prefer thin socks, but when I do a lot of walking or hiking, I like a sock with a bit of cushioning on the bottom. Swiftwick’s Maxus Zero sock has been the perfect sock for my summer outings.

The Maxus Zero socks fit my feet perfectly. There’s no excess material or bunching. There’s a nice amount of cushioning on the bottom of the socks, and they stay in place all day long, thanks to a well-defined heel cup, a seamless toe area, and an ultra-thin and grippy area on top of the socks. I love never having to think about my socks because they’re so comfortable.

I like the below-ankle style, and the wicking and breathing properties of the Maxus Zero socks. My feet stay dry and never overheat. Thanks to the excellent wicking and breathing abilities of this sock (Swiftwick claims the fabric wicks 40% better than other socks), I can wear the socks a couple of times before washing.
