Oldest American Sock Manufacturer Debuts New Styles, Colors and Comfort
Niota, TN (Jan 16, 2013)—Toss aside everything you thought you knew about socks. FITS Sock Co., the oldest American-Made sock manufacturer in the country, is proud to once-again push the standards of sock technology and comfort to a new level. FITS’ Fall 2013 collection includes new running, hiking and casually styled high performance socks as well as stylish re-designs of FITS’ classic Light Ski and Women’s Casual line-ups.
FITS Light Ski socks were recently dubbed, "Best Ski Socks on the Planet" in Outside Magazine's Winter Buyer's Guide for good reason: because the socks set a new standard in comfort and performance thanks to an unprecedented amount of patent-pending technology. FITS Socks are built with 18.5 micron double-plyed yarn to achieve a super soft feel with the durability of a much thicker gauge wool. Time intensive, patent-pending sewing techniques are applied so FITS socks ergonomically mold around the lower calf, heel pocket, foot arch and toe-box allowing the sock to stay comfortably next to your skin while eliminating rubbing and hotspots. All said and done, FITS socks are guaranteed to be your favorite socks you’ll ever own.
