Darn Tough Vermont Redesigns One of the Lightest Hiking Socks in the Industry
– Darn Tough to debut new Light Hiker sock at
2015 Winter Outdoor Retailer –
Northfield, Vermont (SNEWS) January 21, 2015 – Darn Tough Vermont, the leading manufacturer of the fastest growing collection of performance socks in the USA, continues to lead the way in specialty socks with the introduction of the newly redesigned Women’s Light Hiker Micro Crew Light Cushion sock, which will debut at the 2015 Winter Outdoor Retailer (Booth 32150).
“The best hiking socks provide comfort and support without added weight and bulk, which can cause bunching and blisters,” explains Ric Cabot, President and CEO of Darn Tough Vermont. “The Light Hiker is the perfect marriage of strength and comfort, and provides the best in both.
“At Darn Tough Vermont, we constantly strive to improve upon existing technology to provide our consumers with the best socks possible, and the Light Hiker Micro Crew Light Cushion is no exception. The addition of contoured padding around the footbed, heel and ankle add the support that long distance hikers need, but with half the wool yarn weight of our cushion socks so they don’t feel heavy or bulky.”
Constructed out of antimicrobial, fine gauge Merino wool, the Women’s Light Hiker Micro Crew Light Cushion naturally wicks moisture, regulates temperature and repels bacteria and odor to keep feet feeling and smelling fresh, even after multiple days of wear.
The Women’s Light Hiker Micro Crew Light Cushion is available in two color ways: Slate/Seafoam and Oatmeal/Fuchsia (MSRP $20.00).
Like all Darn Tough Vermont socks, the Light Hiker Micro Crew Light Cushion is designed, manufactured and tested in Darn Tough Vermont’s mill in Northfield, Vermont and is unconditionally guaranteed for life.
Darn Tough Vermont will be serving up their famous maple creemees topped with bacon at the 2015 Winter Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, Utah at Booth 32150 located in the Salt Palace Convention Center from January 21st to the 24th. Their new socks will be available in stores starting July 1, 2015. For more information about Darn Tough Vermont socks, please visit www.DarnTough.com.
