Teko Socks is proud to announce a two-year sponsorship of USA Luge as its official sock supplier through the 2009-10 racing season.

Teko will provide organic teko-merino and recycled teko-poly socks to the USA Luge athletes for training and for competition. Designed for performance and comfort, Teko's organic merino wool ski and multi-sport socks are extremely soft, durable and naturally moisture-wicking. Seamless toes and crush-resistant cushioning combine for unparalleled sport performance.
Owen Hammond, General Manager of Teko says, “Teko is thrilled to support the USA Luge organization! Teko's wintersport socks are designed for cold weather sports, where athletes need equipment that provides warmth, support, and proper fit. USA Luge specifically chose Teko socks, and that is a true testament to our socks' ability to insulate and perform in extreme conditions. USA Luge is ahead of the curve in seeking planet-friendly, made-in-the-USA gear for their athletes.”

“Being warm and comfortable while racing at speeds in excess of 90 MPH is critical,” stated USA Luge's marketing director Gordy Sheer. “Our athletes will now have warm feet and can focus on sliding down the track thanks to Teko's eco-friendly products.”

Teko strives for balance between people, animals and the planet. Leading the way in the industry, Teko uses a bluesign-certified non-chlorine process for shrink resistance. The sheep are farmed organically with responsible land and water practices. Teko is 100% wind-powered and all socks are made in the USA.
