Fibre Compositions

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.

Tailored Sizing

Too big, and you get fabric bunching up, causing irritation; too small, and the sock will not sit or perform correctly on your foot.

Coolmax®

Developed in 1986, Coolmax® is a technical fibre engineered to keep the wearer dry. The fibre’s unique cross section absorbs and pulls moisture away from the skin, transporting it down tiny grooves in its surface. Once the moisture spreads across a larger surface area, the rate of evaporation of that moisture increases. This effect helps keep your feet dry and cool. Coolmax® allows us to create socks that are soft and breathable; perfect for optimal sports performance in warmer weather.

Sock Leg Lengths

INVISIBLE, ANKLE, QUARTER, CREW, KNEE HIGH

All socks are sized based on 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 five main areas.
 
  • Invisible - finishes below the trainer line hense "invisible".
  • Ankle – finishes at around where your trainer does, below the ankle.
  • Quarter – finishes just above the ankle
  • Crew – finishes just underneath the calf
  • Knee High – finished just underneath the knee

Breathable Meshed Fabric

Hot and sweaty feet are something which everyone battles with, especially in active environments. Our breathable meshed fabric is constructed so that it increases airflow to and from the skin. This allows the warm air trapped beneath the sock to escape, being replaced by cooler air from outside the sock. To aid this breathability, we strongly advise wearing shoes that also have a breathable mesh.

Cushioned Sole

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.

Comfort Linked Toe Seam

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.

Difference between the Equestrian and Competition Socks

The SockMine equestrian sock has been created to support and ventilate the leg and utilises graduation elastication to aid circulation for recovery and warmth. On the other hand, our competition sock has been specifically tailored for dressage and competitions. The lightweight close fitting leg gives ultimate feel and control inside close fitting dressage boots, whilst the coolmax® padded foot helps to keep you cool and dry.
