Mil-Spec Sport Socks - Yellow
Upstate Stock was born out of the simple fact that American manufacturing of the highest quality is still out there, the same manufacturing from decades ago that is both at a standard that very few countries can match, but also affordable. Over the last few decades, there has been a stark decrease in all areas of American manufacturing; factories and mills that were once thriving are now disappearing. Why were the factories that once made our jeans, shirts, and accessories for decades and upon decades going out of business? Why was there more “made in America” clothing over the last few years and fewer and fewer of the factories that were once the backbone of a country that was the benchmark in clothing manufacturing? The standard of American manufacturing had decreased significantly. Are there still factories out there in the US that can make goods to the standard American manufacturing was known for? The answer is a resounding yes…lots of them…still plugging away after decades and decades, and they are affordable.
The American Trench mil-spec sport sock is the same sock knit for the US military, including the use of anti-microbial silver filament yarn knit into the heel, toe, and sole. Silver is proven to kill bacteria and promote moisture migration and is a game-changing technical addition to this super hard wearing cotton sock. For added performance and comfort, they went beyond military spec and added a compression band on the foot and additional arch support. You can hike for days in this sock and your feet will be well supported and the silver will fight off the stink.
After rigorous field testing, this sock stood up to heavy-use hiking, trail running, biking, and outdoor activity. But the real test? Cement work. Nothing destroys clothing more than hauling, grinding, sanding, and mixing bits of rock and cement. Our cement working friends gave them two thumbs up, which was the ultimate endorsement. The addition of the anti-microbial silver in the heel, toe and sole provides moisture and odor control.
