Lorpen, a Spanish-based sock designer and manufacturer that uses blended yarn technology for high performance socks, is introducing its 2016 spring/summer sock collection that features LorpeNRG Technology. The new LorpeNRG socks and compression calf sleeves will feature NILIT INNERGY, a unique nylon that improves blood flow and reduces the lactic acid, thus improving muscle recovery after exercising. It also makes the sock more durable and gives it a super soft feel against the skin. The new Lorpen sock styles will be available at specialty retail stores and online at www.lorpennorthamerica.com in spring 2016.

“At Lorpen, we are always looking for new fibers that we can combine to make our socks the most technically advanced for our customers,” said Bruce Barrows, VP of sales and marketing at Lorpen North America. “We’ve always talked about performance in the sock industry, but now we are also focusing on the benefits of a healthy muscle ‘recovery.’ After the activity of choice, whether it be running or hiking, where muscles are pushed to the max, recovery is an important aspect that can’t be overlooked. NILIT yarn will help athletes and outdoor enthusiasts in both the performance and recovery mode.” 

Lorpen is applying the NILIT INNERGY yarn to its Trail Running, Hiking and Compression Calf Sleeve collection.
