Lorpen, a Spanish-based sock designer and manufacturer that uses blended yarn technology for high performance socks, has created a new design that will further enhance the breathability and ventilation for the 2015 spring/summer sock collection. The result will be a stronger but lighter product that will keep the foot dry and blister-free. The new Lorpen sock styles will be available at specialty retail stores and online at www.lorpennorthamerica.com in spring 2015.

“Lorpen is an outdoor company that manufactures one product – socks - so we have an obligation to do it well,” said Bruce Barrows, VP of sales and marketing at Lorpen North America. “Our research and design group is driven to find fibers that we can combine to make a super fiber that can improve all aspects of the performance we see in today’s traditional sock designs. We have integrated the best fibers for warm weather performance into these new products, and have also improved the knitting structure to enhance the breathability throughout the sock.” 

Unlike other traditional sock companies that focus just on a single fiber, such as Merino, Lorpen has developed a blended yarn technology using a combination of Coolmax®, Tencel® and Nylon that results in a high performance sock that keeps the feet dry, comfortable and well ventilated. As a result, both the Trail Running and the Multisport products have improved wicking, and moisture management to complement improved breathability. This combination will allow the summer athlete to maximize performance in all summer activities.

Trail Running & Multisport Socks: Lorpen’s new trail running sock features a blend of natural and synthetic yarns (Coolmax, Tencel and Nylon), as well as enhanced ventilation on the top and side of the sock to maintain a dry, blister-free foot during rigorous activity in hot climates. Additional structural reinforcement creates a stronger sock that will stand up to whatever the wearer puts it through over a long period of time and hundreds of washings. MSRP: $11.00 – $13.00.

Compression Calf Sleeves: Lorpen recently introduced midweight and lightweight Compression Calf Sleeves and has improved its design for 2015 with brighter colors and graphics that match the Lorpen trail running and multisport socks. MSRP: $30.00 (lightweight); $35.00 (midweight)
