Updated fit system enhances performance for high intensity workouts and adds versatility

OSAGE, Iowa (Aug. 4, 2011) — Fox River®, a leading U.S. manufacturer of outdoor, sport and workwear performance socks since 1900, is stepping up its game in the trail running and fast backpacking markets this Spring with the Adventure Cross Terrain (AXT®) Collection.

Ideal for strenuous outdoor activities such as trail running, adventure racing, mountain biking, and backpacking, the AXT collection provides added support like never before. The URfitâ„¢ Personalized Fit System features memory-knit construction, spandex compression zones around the arch and ankle, a unique split-heel spandex support, as well as reinforced zones and a smooth, flat toe seam for durability and comfort.

The AXT collection features Fox River's unique blend of super fine Merino wool and recycled polyester fibers to create a technical sock built for greater durability and enhanced moisture transfer. Fox River's exclusive Wick Dry® technology moves moisture away from the foot in a vapor state, eliminating moisture build-up that can lead to hot spots and blisters, while wool naturally reduces odor and thermoregulates.

Soft, recycled polyester fibers are combined with the added strength of nylon to create a more durable Merino product without excessive bulk or weight. Waffle-knit mesh zones also help repel moisture from the outer layers of the sock to keep adventurers dry and comfortable.

“Fox River has a long-standing history for making high performance, great fitting socks,” said Fox River co-owner, Jeff Lessard. “The AXT collection satisfies the demand of the discerning outdoor customer looking for a long-lasting, hybrid Merino product that can withstand rigorous physical activity. Plus, with the new fit and styling offer today's multi-sport adventurer the flexibility and freedom to go from one activity to the next without missing a step.”

The complete AXT collection will be on display in the Fox River booth (#24044) during the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show in Salt Lake City August 4-7.
