Sock Construction

toe seam The Toe Seam There is no sock without toe seam. A cheap sock will have a seam with relief on the inside of top of the toe area. A mediocre sock will have it with relief but on the outside. A Lorpen technical sock incorporates a no relief seam that joins one stitch flat with another interlocking stitch without creating a ridge or any relief, this is why we call it stitch by stitch (SBS Toe Seam). elasticity Elasticity and Adaptability These attributes ensure the sock fits each foot size properly, without wrinkles or creases that can cause blisters. The Stretch nylon yarn, with elastane core and coated with nylon, provides the elasticity. The higher the percentage of Stretch nylon yarn, the greater the elasticity, and the better the elastane, the more long-lasting the elasticity of the new sock. Lycra® is the best elastane yarn on the market. Lorpen uses up to 10% Stretch nylon yarn with lycra throughout the structure of its socks, a level which is unsurpassed on the world market. This is why our socks still fit so well after years of use and multiple washes. lorpen sock layers Multiple Density Every sport activity demands different type of sock thickness and density design. Cushioned areas in pressure points, open mesh in cooling areas, etc. Lorpen technical socks incorporate in each range their own specific density engineering that we call MDK= Multiple Density Knit. moisture wicking Resistance and Durability The outer yarn of the whole sock, in the case of extreme activities, or in localized areas of friction, should be extremely resistant (Nylon 6.6). At Lorpen, we cover the entire sock in Nylon in our extreme ranges, while we reinforce areas of friction in our intermediate ranges. This is why they are “guaranteed for life”.

STABILIZER WRAP

Tighter fit around the arch and top of the foot for increased blood flow.

VENTING AREA

Venting along the top of the sock allow heat generated by the foot to escape.

REINFORCED VARIABLE CUSHIONING PROTECTION

Additional cushioning in targeted areas allows for better impact protection and a longer sock life span.

ARTICULATED AREA

Additional articulation near the ankle allows the sock to stretch during intense aerobic activity.
