This is our newest iteration of the sock. It's a mid-weight all purpose sock that takes comfort, durability, and odor protection to an all new high. We took everything we learnt from the sock 1.0 and re-engineered the elements to create a masterpiece. Nothing is perfect, but we think this sock comes pretty darn close.
We have a one year durability guarantee on all our socks. If your sock rips or tears within 12 months of purchase, we'll replace it for free.
The 2.0 socks are created with a higher micron merino wool that's more durable than the ultra fine grade used in our underwear. The merino is blended with a touch of acrylic to give it an extremely soft, pillowy texture for superb comfort. Abrasive areas are reinforced with high-strength nylon and finally, we engineered an all new metallic silver yarn with built-in stretch that runs throughout the core of the entire sock.
Our SilverAir yarns are flat, which means there's no inherent stretch in them. For sock 2.0, we combined the SilverAir yarns with spandex which allowed us to knit the silver continually throughout the entire product. While the base Merino is naturally bacteriostatic, silver neutralizes any bacteria it comes into contact with. This essentially gives sock 2.0 unmatched anti-odor performance that lasts the life of the product.
A high-density 200 needle knitting machine is used to construct these socks. We cushioned only the footbed to deliver incredible comfort without adding bulk. The toe caps are seamlessly knit to prevent any blisters and there are no open stitches on the inside. Turn the sock inside-out and you'll find a completely smooth surface that won't rub you the wrong way.
I backed the original Ankle Sock; it was promising. It was a pretty good product, until I washed it. Then it looked, well, like it was coming apart. When the marketing for version 2 started, it touched on the short comings of version 1. Good, they're acknowledging the faults, says I. Not needing any more ankle socks, I went with the crew. This sock is everything I wanted in version 1. They are comfy, so I went straight to the stress test, wearing the same pair of socks to work for a week. By the end of the week, they were still comfy, not a hint of odour. In to the wash they went and out they came, with none of the side effects v 1 exhibited. They breathe very well. The only thing left to test is longevity. Here's hoping I get to enjoy these for a while!
Y Athletics has done it again! I received my items in just 2 days and LOVED the experience as always… the packaging is so cool that I hate to open it! I bought these items as gifts and I am sure the the guys will be back for more...
Your products are awesome, but do you really need all that packaging? Those zip-lock bags are super-heavy weight and completely unnecessary. I like that your products mean that I have to wash less often, so I have less of a footprint. But your packaging uses SO MUCH single-use plastic! How about paper bags, or much lighter plastic at least.
Shirts are great. Socks too. I need more. I wish they made bigger bundles
So far so good they seem to be of high quality I’m getting a little bit of a funny fit in the toes but otherwise quite happy with the purchase.
