Our cushioned socks are constructed out of soft terry loop, which protects feet and reduces the shock of impact. They are engineered to provide protection against blisters and designed to wick moisture away in order to keep feet dry. Acrylic, the most widely used fiber for athletic socks is soft, washes well and holds its shape. This style of socks are great for sneakers. They are perfect for hiking boots as well. Most of our socks are Lightweight or Ultra Lightweight cotton. Cotton is widely preferred for softness. Nylon is used for strength and spandex is great for stretching power. The brilliant colors show detail in our designs.
