Point6, makers of premium merino wool socks engineered to deliver the ultimate in performance and comfort, is proud to unveil several new performance running styles for Spring 2013.

As Point6 continues to expand its product offerings in the performance running category, ultrarunners and endurance athletes everywhere are taking note. From long-distance ultramarathons and trail runs, to hard and fast intervals on the track, Point6 running socks offer sport-specific cushioning, rugged durability and stabilizing properties designed to maximize performance and comfort.

Point6 running socks are engineered to endure miles of repetitive force without interfering with high-tech running shoes or impairing circulation. Knit-in Achilles and arch braces ensure a snug, secure fit and extra support whether for trail, road, treadmill, or track. Extra-light cushioning is strategically placed under foot where runners need it most for a performance, comfortable fit. Mesh ventilation panels enhance breathability and moisture management for warm days and prevent chaffing, hot spots and blisters.

“Runners represent some of the most discerning sock customers,” said Peter Duke, founder and CEO with Point6. “So we couldn't be happier with the positive feedback we've received from professional athletes and specialty dealers alike. This has been instrumental in refining our product development process with the end goal to create the perfect fitting running sock.”
