Healthy and agile feet are important to support our entire body weight in our day-to-day lives. Our feet contain 250,000 sweat glands that constantly secrete moisture to keep feet moist, supple and healthy. However, many feet are prone to excessive sweating, which can lead to irritable feet. Sweaty and smelly feet are a common problem that many people encounter at some stage in their lives.
Carnation Silversocks are breathable and constructed using a high percentage of cotton for comfort. As the sock is completely and universally coated with silver it has both excellent thermodynamic and antimicrobial properties keeping feet cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter while inhibiting the growth of odour causing bacteria.
X-Static silver eliminates 99.9% of bacteria in less than one hour of exposure.
Bacteria are only one source of foot odour. Ammonia and denatured proteins are also significant causes of odour in hosiery products. Carnation Silversocks neutralise ammonia and denatured proteins, because both bind readily to silver resulting in instant odour reduction.
Carnation Silversocks’ hydrophobic yarn system allows a greater amount of moisture to be drawn through the fibres for subsequent evaporation. As a result moisture is transferred away from the foot faster, creating a more comfortable environment.
