About The Product
The Sole-Socks story:
Sole-Socks were created from the desire that two brothers had to solve a simple problem, how to achieve that no sock or sockless look without ending up with stinky shoes and feet.
More and more the sockless look is becoming popular. You also have a huge amount of people who just don't want to wear socks. There are a couple big issues and annoyances that everyone who is trying to pull off the sockless look has to deal with. If you choose to wear socks, you have to find super small thin socks that don't go above the shoe line. These socks are typically tight, uncomfortable and slip off the heel throughout the day. The other option is to fold down larger socks and deal with bunching and unevenness on your foot. The last option is just to choose not to wear socks. This seems like the most logical right? But then you run into the issue of having sweaty, smelly feet which almost always gets trapped in your shoes and no matter how many times you try to air them out, or even wash them, the smell won't go away. I can't tell you how many pairs of shoes I have had to throw away from rancid, funky smells from not wearing socks.
Sole-Socks are specialty insoles that have been created to replace socks. You can machine wash them when they smell and get dirty. Sole socks solve the many problems that we face when trying to pull off the no sock look. This is a deodorization, hygroscopicity and breathable, shock- absorption insole that offers added comfort to your shoe. These also offer air circulation inside the shoe. The end result is that your feet are cool, dry and comfortable.
Sole- socks are specially designed with a plush terry cloth top, which absorbs the moisture, odor, and all the other funky things that come from your feet throughout the day. This 100% cotton Terry cloth has been specially designed to be thick with long loops in order to be breathable enough to let heat and air through to the foot but its fibers are designed in a way to absorb anything that shouldn't be in your shoe, such as sweat and odor. The terry cloth is attached with a durable cotton outer layer of fabric and attached with a Bosnian embroidered stitch around the entire outer edge of the sole. The zig zag looking stitch insures durability and quality during the length of the product life. Sole-Socks were designed to take the wear and tear that occurs each day on your feet. The final component of the design is the base, this is designed in such a way to allow the sole to grip the inside of your shoe and prevent slipping. These same fiber that grip and stabilize the Sole-Sock, are designed in such a way to allows air to flow from underneath your foot. This allows your foot to breath, cools it down and cuts down on sweat and odor. Additionally, the base layer is perforated to allow the foot to breathe from the bottom. This bottom layer also acts as a padding and support.
Sole-Socks are designed in a way to offer a little more cushion and comfort on the bottom of your foot. At the same time we designed it in a way to make sure it wasn't to bulky to cause the shoe too become tight and uncomfortable. These were designed to be treated like a pair of socks.
We recommend you purchase the size of sole-sock that you would for shoes size. Sole-Socks are offered in whole sizes only, if you are a half size we recommend going down to the nearest whole size. For example if you are a size 9.5 you would order a size 9 Sole-Sock.
Do they really work?
I'm sure some people doubt that these could replace their socks and have so many added benefits. To be honest we were a bit skeptical at first as well. Yes, it is a simple design but the product testing and design behind Sole-socks speaks for its self. When analyzing the materials and the functions each one of these materials play into the product. We know our product works and are proud to stand behind it. The only way to truly know for yourself, is to try it out.
How often do I need to wash my soles-socks?
This really depends on you. Each person who uses the product differs widely. Some people's feet sweat a lot more than others. Some people are washing their pair each day, while others wash their Sole-socks every few weeks.
Care instructions: How do I wash my sole-socks?
It's really simple Sole-Socks are washing machine friendly, just throw them in the washer at the end of the day or after a few uses. We recommend air drying Sole-Socks for longer sole life. They are designed to air dry very quickly and be ready to use with little wait time.
Why do my feet stink without socks?
Stinky feet are caused by overgrowth of bacteria. Interestingly, a skilled diagnostician can identify the type of bacteria from the smell. Sole-Socks help prevent this bacteria from taking place in your shoes it acts like buffer and stops smell at its source.
