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!
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.
Having many of the 1.0 socks I was hoping that the 2.0 would be better but it is not. I feel as if the socks hold moisture and the fact that there not made mono footed (one is right the other is left) makes them bunch on the outside of the foot or be stretched on the inside.
This was my first pair... plan on buying more. All-around just a great comfortable sock Only gripe is that they do not make the extra large in more than one color ... please reconsider that. There are more people in that size range than you think
Only one wear but it was comfortable and stayed in place. Kept foot reasonable dry on a hot day. Thumbs up and only shipping charges stopping me buying more
