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.
They are nice socks. Kyle is a big fan of Y products, so I wanted to give these as christmas gift. If it arrived before christ mas.. It would have been great.. thanks!
It really works for keeping feet dry and clean. They're very comfortable, however the fabric seems a little bit fragile as it has already begun to wear off only after 3 weeks (not wearing them every day).
Reliable pair of socks that don't smell, what more can you ask for!
These are some of the best socks I've ever owned.
I was excited to get these as I have had great success with other Y Athletics products. As I expected, these socks were not only stylish enough to were at work, but were very soft and breathable. The best part is certainly the active silver within the garments that prevent the growth of bacteria ending the "stinky sock" menace. I'm pretty certain the US Military would love socks these designed for their needs.I have to give these socks a definite 10 of 10 stars.
