- Technical Sock Guide
Here at the SockMine, 'elf and safety' is our top priority. But one day, it was apparent that something was plaguing the elves – the loose big toe epidemic. A cure was knitted: a sock that could withstand hard work and, most importantly, the elves' curly steel toe-cap boots.
Best used for: Hard work done in sturdy boots. (Toe cap protection)
50% Nylon, 49% Cotton, 1% Elastane
Bulky seams have no place in a sock designed for performance. The comfort linked toe seam is flat, so causes no irritation to the tops of your toes.
Additional cushioning underfoot is used to increase the comfort and the durability of the sock. The terry loop pile fabric is constructed so This is perfect for when you're up on your feet for an extended period of time and needing that extra level of support.
The heel and toe of the sock is reinforced with additional synthetic yarns, which increase the durability of the sock making it perform better for longer.
All socks are sized based upon the foot size, but there is another factor to think about when buying socks: where it comes to on your leg. We categorise these into four main areas.
Through reinforcing key impact zones with synthetic yarns, we can increase the durability of the sock making it perform better for longer.
The fibre composition details percentage by weight of each fibre contained in the sock. Technical socks often have a proportion of synthetic fibres such as nylon and elastane, as these provide durability and stretch to the sock. For a technical wool sock, you should expect around a 50% wool content.
Sock sizing is made complicated by many misconceptions, and size ranges trying to accommodate too many people. Too big, and you get fabric bunching up, causing irritation; too small, and the sock will not sit or perform correctly on your foot.
Each of our sizes cover 4 UK shoe sizes, from 2 up to 13½.
