WEST LINN, OR (July 30, 2012) â€“ Dahlgren Footwear, maker of the original moisture management sock for outdoor performance and mastermind behind seven sock technology patents, freshens up its branding platform with a dynamic and demonstrative new logo and package design to pair with its expanded 2012-2013 line of superior socks for casual, dress, sport and outdoor categories.
The comprehensive repackaging effort features the new â€œPlusâ€(+) symbolâ€”seen in the Alpaca+ and Merino+ linesâ€”as well as detailed product information and illustrations designed to appeal to a more modern consumer aesthetic and to help communicate to shoppers the enhanced nature of Dahlgren sock fibers.
â€œWhen we say â€˜alpaca and merino,’ we actually mean much more than that,â€ says President Kris Dahlgren. â€œBeyond using two of nature’s softest and most effective moisture absorbing and thermo-regulating fibers, we integrate our patented Dri-StrideÂ® Tech system with ECO-Driâ„¢ fiber to move absorbed moisture away from the foot and remove it from the shoe. Our new logo is a nod to this â€˜above-and-beyond’ construction, technology, and comfort found in each of our socks.â€
The Alpaca+ line, featuring the naturally soft, thermo-regulating, and moisture-wicking properties of alpaca wool, Merino wool, and the Dri-StrideÂ® Tech system, provides a step up in luxurious comfort and support for outdoor and athletic activities as well as casual pursuits.
The â€˜Plus’ symbol can also be seen in the new Merino + collection of thin, lightweight, Dress Casual socks for men featuring fine gauge Merino wool combined with the proprietary Dri-StrideÂ® Tech system. Offering a streamlined, non-bulky fit, and stylish accents appropriate for office and leisure attire, the Merino + socks provide patented comfort and technology at an affordable, everyday price.
The full Dahlgren Footwear line for 2012-2013 features Alpaca+ and Merino+ socks in a spectrum of weights, heights and designs for men and women to meet the needs of both casual and athletic applications.
Family-owned and operated Dahlgren Footwear was founded in 1978 as the original maker of moisture management socks for athletes. Using the multi-patented Dri-StrideÂ® Tech system, which combines superfine alpaca (three times stronger and ten times more insulative than wool) for perfect thermal regulation; merino wool to provide all-day resilience; and separate zones of hydrophobic Eco-Driâ„¢ to remove absorbed moisture, Dahlgren offers the only active moisture management process available in a sock. The U.S.-produced Dahlgren line includes comfortable, high-performance socks for outdoor and snow sports, running and casual wear.
