A Sock with a patent? Wigwam Ultra Cool Lite knows you’re sweaty

who knew such research was going into socks?

Look, I won’t lie – unlike Geoff I don’t have a sock obsession, in fact I have 15 pairs of the exact same black Bonds socks – no mismatch issues for me, and no missing socks.  So when the good folk at Wigwam wrote to me telling me about their new technology, I had to listen.

F6281	Ultra Cool-Lite Low	Ultra-lighweight ➊ Ultimax® Pro enhanced with Dri-release® TENCEL®       for rapid moisture evaporation ➋ Breathable mesh panels ➌ Seamless toe closure 42% Stretch Nylon, 35% X20° Acrylic,  20% Dri-release° TENCEL° (88% Polyester, 12% Tencel°), 3% Spandex

Wigwam reckon their “sock engineers” have patented sock technology that recognises your body’s temperature changes while you’re on the go and adapts to your needs.

I’ll be honest, I have not checked the validity of that claim at the Patent office, but lets run with it.

They have “breathable mesh panels” and “Ultimax® Pro” technology enhanced with “Drirelease® Tencel®” which means they have a lot of tech and ideas, or they really love the ® character.

All in all, the team at Wigwam reckon their socks are the bees knees when it comes to active feet and keeping comfy and happy during and after a long walk, hike or activity.

So, if hiking is your thing – perhaps you should be checking out the Wigwams huh?

They’re made from 45% Stretch Nylon, 29% X2O® Acrylic, 22% Drirelease® Tencel® (88% Polyester, 12% Tencel®) and 4% Spandex.
