Socks are evolving too. Just as with shoes, sock designers have realized that different activities require different padding and support, and leading that evolution is Ausangate Socks. Their consistently soft, comfortable and padded ALPACOR Yarn socks are different for different activities, from running to hiking to cycling to tennis. For those models designed for us active TrailblazerGrils, most feature a terry liner from heel to toe to prevent blisters and a “Y” heel seam and ribbed band across the instep and arch to keep the socks in place. They have the natural hypoallergenic, antimicrobial and wicking properties of Alpaca hair to keep them, well, fresh and smell-free.
