The first cousin of the shoe,"THE SOCK"
The sock is comprised of an intimate blend of 47% U.S. Wool, 47% Polypropylene yarn, and 6% Nylon yarn selected for it's superior insulation, durability, and moisture transport properties. The sock is dyed later on during the process to add the colors that our consumers demand. The sock is simply gorgeous!!! Agree with the previous poster--perfect match of yarn and pattern.
The sock is made with Teflon, which is designed to reinforce the toe and heel while preventing friction. A Cool-max fiber also keeps moisture off the skin, and ?no-seam? The sock is thicker in the heel to give added protection from blisters, and the Cool-max design means these really do wick away moisture so at the end of my golf game my socks are not wringing wet! Even thinner socks worn during a golf game on a hot day have resulted in damp socks, which can contribute to blisters. The sock is thought to have been made in India because it was found with other materials exported from India and sold in the Egyptian market.
Socks come in a variety of fibers and fiber combinations. Commonly used fibers include cotton, wool, nylon, acrylic, polyester, olefin, and spandex. Socks stretch nicely, and thus unless you have exceptionally sized feet, fit should not be an issue . Socks, are an important component of a running athlete's equipment. While offering protection, cushioning, and distributing the pressures of the shoe onto the foot, they also serve to enhance or impede the flow of moisture off the foot.
Socks provides powerful features with a uniquely elegant and meticulously designed interface, and this design philosophy is equally reflected in Sock's internals.
