The foot produces over 1 US pint of perspiration per day.

Unaddressed, that moisture can cause problems—it can make you feel colder, it can make you feel hotter, it can cause blisters, and create general discomfort and fatigue that distracts from your activity. After years of research and field testing under every condition this world has to offer, Dahlgren pioneered and patented a system that not only absorbs this sweat, but also continually moves it to where it can be evaporated. With Dahlgren’s patented Dri-Stride Technology, your Dahlgrens become a secret weapon against temperature swings, discomfort and even blisters. We want you to focus on your activity, not your feet.

Most common fibers:

Natural fibers are great at absorbing moisture, not so great at wicking or releasing it.

Synthetic fibers are great at wicking and releasing moisture, not so great at absorbing it.

Our solution is to treat the sock as two zones: The zone inside the shoe and the zone outside of the shoe.

Patented Dri-Stride® Technology at work. Moisture absorbed from humid, hot environment. Moisture released in dry, cool environment. Synthetic fiber in sock wicks and releases moisture out of shoe. Natural fiber in heel & toe absorb moisture. Wicking rings™ & Wicking channels™ improve tranfer out of shoe.

By absorbing and removing moisture as it is created, feet are warmer in cold temps, cooler in warm temps, and drier and more comfortable everywhere. Dahlgren socks are made using our exclusive, patented Dri-Stride® Moisture Management Technology in every beautiful sock we produce. We use Alpaca & Merino wool in our Absorption Zones and Therma-Dri™ synthetic fiber to transfer and ultimately remove moisture from your shoe. Many claim to remove moisture, but only Dahlgren has Dri-Stride® proven effective technology.
