The Debris Sock is available in two versions- Cool Max (red or black) and merino wool (blue or black)

The Debris Sock is available in Cool Max or merino wool, both with a 1.3 ounce weight (BPL measured). This patent-pending design combines a performance sock with an integrated cuff that acts as a gaiter.

New and innovative features:

  • At 1.3 ounces, no combination of sock or gaiter comes close to this weight and simplicity
  • Even the most breathable stretch gaiters are warm and sweaty; the Debris Socks offer far superior breathability- they are nearly as breathable as normal socks

The one-piece sock/gaiter covers the top of the shoe with a fabric cuff, attaching to the laces with a clip and the sole with a two-piece cord.

Attached at the laces with a clip and under the rear of the sole with a two-piece replaceable cord, the Debris Sock snugly covers the entire top of the shoe, sealing it from sand, rock, or other trail materials. For those times when a short scree gaiter is too warm or too heavy, the Inov-8 Debris Sock should be all the protection you’ll need.

And the official word is: they're looking to launch the Debris Socks in Spring/Summer '07. More info will be on the Inov-8 website closer to that time.
