Golf Vacations Magazine highlighted some of their favorite gear in the April 2016 issue. Here’s what they had to say about Swiftwick socks for golfers.
“More and more golf clothing manufacturers are introducing performance compression socks because players are continually on their feet and any respite from the rigors of swinging a club and walking for hours is always helpful.
The benefits of compression socks are becoming more widely appreciated. One of the specialties companies in this arena that is making a splash in golf is Swiftwick, which features its Managed Compression socks, that has the feel of second skin and helps stabilize the 200 ligaments and 35 muscles in the foot. Its properties reduce swelling and increase circulation to help your feet feel fresher and recover quicker.
Made of 74 percent Nylon, 23 percent Olefin and 3 percent Spandex, these socks have a light but snug feel that is important in preventing blisters with the seamless linked toe construction, and gently hugs the shape of your foot and eliminates negative space.
The chemical free wicking performs every time and delivers the ultimate dry-fit while the advanced knit patterns with structured Olefin and Merino Wool fibers pull sweat off the body and repel moisture. Swiftwick also employs natural odor fighting technology that helps keep the socks fresher for a longer period of time.
The extreme colorfastness of these socks derives from being “solution” dyed instead of chemically dyed. This process is also environmentally advantageous since it produces no waste.
These athletic sock lines are knitted at 200 needles; the highest density found in most socks. The higher the needle count, the tighter the knit. The socks are so tightly knitted that trail debris or foreign material can’t penetrate to cause irritation and blistering. This structure creates a second-skin feel, prevents shifting or bunching and eliminates the risk of friction blisters while making your shoes fit more comfortably. The high- gauge construction produces a softer, denser and more durable garment.
Made in the USA, Swiftwick golf socks come in a variety of styles and colors. For more information on Swiftwick golf socks: www.swiftwick.com.”
