Fit is interchangeable between our fashion and athletic categories. Function or suggested use determines suggested fiber content. Have your design team inquire about best practices for fiber content.
Our athletic/sport options are built to last.
Socks with sweat-wicking technology repel or wick sweat away from the skin so it can be evaporated more easily. The breathable, anti-odor fabric and ventilation properties promote airflow to keep your feet dry and cool. Each heel strike produces a force equal to three to four times your body weight.
Our sport/athletic solutions are the staple for top luxury fitness and wellness brands, boutique and corporate respectively.
- Maximum comfort and protection.

“Most of your socks are produced in a circular knitting machine, minimizing the number of seams needed. How are socks made by this machine? Needles in the machine knit the socks by creating a series of loops, forming an open fabric tube.” -Victor Perez
Cotton is a lightweight, moisture-absorbing fiber. It’s breathable, washable and durable, so it is the most common fiber in socks. Because it is so great at absorbing moisture, it is generally blended with nylon, a nonabsorbent material, to help move moisture away from the foot.
Nylon is a very strong, versatile, hard-wearing fiber. Socks made of nylon can be thin and silky or bulky and highly elastic. Nylon is often used with other fibers in blends to give added stretch or to improve durability.
The terms elastane, Lycra and spandex all refer to the same style of synthetic fiber made from polyurethane. Spandex is the commonly used term in the U.S., which was marketed under brand name Lycra, while the term elastane is used worldwide. First produced by DuPont in 1959, the fiber has elastic properties so it is often used in place of rubber. Used with other fibers, it provides elasticity, comfort and a close fit, which makes it a common choice in socks to help them stay up and in the arch and ankle to provide extra support.
Modal is a natural fiber, typically made from beech trees. It’s more water-absorbent than cotton and holds on to color better.
Acrylic is a highly durable man-made fiber that provides softness and warmth with little weight. Acrylic’s inherent properties enable it to hold brighter and more brilliant colors than natural fibers.
Bamboo fibers are taken from the natural, fast-growing plant. Bamboo is softer and more breathable than cotton and has a natural sheen to the surface, so it almost feels like silk or cashmere. Bamboo is hypoallergenic, naturally microbial and very durable, making it a luxury choice for socks.
CoolMax is a brand name of a polyester blend designed to wick moisture away from the skin.
