FALKE Stepping It Up For Conservation
FALKE South Africa is pledging its support to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) by donating R5 of every FALKE AH4 hiking sock sale to the conservation organisation. The campaign has been well received since its launch in January this year and to date just under 6500 pairs of the FALKE AH4 have been sold.
The FALKE AH4 anklet forms part of the FALKE Advance Performance range and offers the ultimate in wearer comfort. The asymmetrical toe design provides a customised fit for both left and right feet, while the combination of Drynamix fibre and a special wool yarn ensure that feet stay cool and dry in summer and warm in winter.
A wide rib and strategically placed cushioning combined with specially constructed mesh panels provide extra stability, support and comfort as well as effective ventilation. The reinforced heel and toe ensures durability.
In addition, the FALKE AH4 provides protection against tick bites that lasts up to 30 launderings. The combination of the Insect Pro-Tech process, that embeds a formulation of the insect repellent Permethrin, with the woollen fibres create a barrier to keep annoying and potentially dangerous insects away.
Nightjar Travel magazine editor, Fiona McIntosh, has been wearing FALKE AH4 socks for all her big mountain adventures for the last few years, most recently on a traverse of the rugged, 3000m-high Mulanje Mountains, Malawi’s ‘Island in the Sky’.
“The FALKE AH4s are super comfy and long lasting,” she confirms. “They’ve kept my feet warm on big, snowy mountains in the Alps and blister-free in the hot, humid conditions of KwaZulu-Natal.”
The FALKE AH4 is available at selected outlets as well as online at www.falke.co.za at R160 in sizes 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. Remember that R5 of each sale will be donated to the WWF in support of their conservation work – so make your purchase count. Find more information on www.wwf.org.za.

FALKE has also added STRIDE to their expansive range of Advance Performance running socks.
If you are a fan of FALKE’s neutral run, you will love the revolutionised STRIDE. The full foot cushioning and support combined with the ergonomic left and right foot fit, provides ultimate wearer comfort.

The new FALKE STRIDE is available in two styles - the hidden or anklet in a choice of five colour ways in sizes 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. Also available in size 13-15 in white only.
