Slide Our award winning socks are then tested by labs in the US to ensure that our moisture management technologies perform to their maximum potential. Lorpen Technical Sock Breakdown T3 Construction Each Lorpen sock is engineered with the same innovative technical components to ensure a proper fit and level of comfort. DRY FEET Our lab tests have consistently proven that a combination of hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibres decreases the time it takes for moisture to be wicked away from the foot. THERMOREGULATION FIT Lorpen socks are designed to fit each foot size properly, without wrinkles that could cause blisters. The elasticity is created with elastane yarn. CUSHIONING 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 their own specific density engineering that we call MDK = Multiple Density Knit.

LORPEN’S T3 AND SLS TECHNOLOGIES

To get a technical sock, it is essential to implement the best textile technologies and work with the best fibers on the market. We are the only brand in the world that manufactures socks with T3 Technology, which is created with three different layers of yarn:

    • A hydrophobic layer thread in contact with the skin that expels sweat and keeps the skin dry.
    • A hydrophilic layer thread in the outer midsection that wicks sweat away from the skin.
    • A strong layer thread that protects areas exposed to friction.

In our relentless efforts to improve the performance of our socks, we have once again taken our technology to previously unknown limits: we have discovered the Selective Layering System. This is a technology that allows us to combine different numbers of layers in the same sock, located in different areas of the sock, as required by the activity. We were the only ones who succeeded in constructing T3 socks with three real layers. Now we are able to use that technology in an even more technologically smart way.

TESTED IN SPECIALIZED LABORATORIES

An independent lab test conducted in North Carolina (U.S.A.) showed that the T3 combination of CoolMax® & Tencel® fibers provided the best results in vertical wicking and moisture absorption, when compared with a variety of traditional yarns used in the construction of athletic socks. This indicates that a person using the T3 combination of yarns could perform at a higher level than when using traditional socks designs. At Lorpen we guarantee the highest performance in our sports socks!

Improved moisture wicking: Vertical wicking test with same light weight socks with different compositions. The bigger the number the better the wicking capabilities.

More efficient distribution of moisture aways from the foot: The moisture is moved quickly away from the foot and due to the properties of Tencel®, it is distributed over the sock for faster evaporation.

WE WORK WITH THE BEST FIBERS OF THE WORLD

At Lorpen we work with some of the best fibers on the market such as Primaloft, Nylon, Coolmax, Tencel and Merino Wool, among others. Thanks to this we are able to manufacture one of the most elastic, adaptable, durable and resistant socks in the entire international market. In addition, the incorporation of these fibers, together with the combination of T3 and SLS technology, offers a series of advantages and high performance, such as:

  • Improves drying speed.
  • Increases insulation properties.
  • Increase sock comfort.
  • Reduces the risk of blisters, irritations and bacteria.
