- Rib support across foot to prevent movement.
- 100% mulesing-free merino wool next to the skin.
Our Stravaiger socks are our take on a traditional hiking sock. In line with this style of sock, and to make them more appropriate for use with walking boots or higher volume footwear, they are a more generous and relaxed fit than the other socks in our range.
If you have a narrow or low volume foot, or are between sizes we would therefore advise sizing down.
Should you have any queries about fitting (or anything else for that matter) please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’ll be happy to asnwer your questions.
A Note About Colours
To celebrate the manufacture of our Stravaiger socks in the Highlands we’ve added the colour name in Gaelic. Gaelic is a wonderfully descriptive language with a strong connection to the landscape and the natural world. The colours are as follows:
Liath = Grey as in the grey of shattered quartzite screes as found on Beinn Liath Mhor (big grey hill) between Achnashellach and Torridon,
Gorm = Blue as in the dark blue/grey of a snow covered hill in an approaching storm. Think Cairngorm or Meall Gorm (both blue hill).
Dearg = Red, and pronounced “Jearg”, as in the red of Torridonian Sandstone. Think of the dramatic Maol Chean-dearg (bald red head) or, Ben Nevis’ neighbour, Carn Mor Derag (big red hill)
73% Merino Wool, 26% GRS Certified Recycled Nylon, 1% Elastane
From professional to amateur, Moggans performance socks are designed to meet the demands of any athlete; from runners to ultra-runners, track runners to cyclists & mountain bikes, walkers, golfers and skiers.
Inspired by the nature and rugged landscape of the Pentland Hills just outside Edinburgh and made to withstand the demands of the notorious Scottish climate, our socks are made from a sustainable Merino wool next-to the skin with a recycled polyamide structure. The result is a sock that provides all day comfort and is tough enough to endure whatever the weather throws at you; mile-after-mile, day-after-day.
