Tighter fit around the arch and top of the foot for increased blood flow.
Venting along the top of the sock allow heat generated by the foot to escape.
Additional cushioning in targeted areas allows for better impact protection and a longer sock life span.
Additional articulation near the ankle allows the sock to stretch during intense aerobic activity.
HIGHEST QUALITY IN FOUR ASPECTS
1. 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. 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.
3. 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).
2. 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).
4. 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”.
