About FITS Socks Co.
Made in the USA
Our FIT is what makes us different, designed by your foot for your foot. FIT is the feel, with super-fine 18.5 micron Merino Wool, we achieve the perfect fitting sock by using FITS’ unique Full Contact Fit TM. Full Contact Fit TM is The Dynamic Toe CupTM – from the top of the toes to under the ball of the foot, the Dynamic Toe Cup conforms to the entire area completely leaving no excess material and no seams to interfere with comfort or performance. The Heel LockTM is a unique heal pocket, the sock has a ‘deep’ anatomically correct heel pocket that anchors the sock in place preventing movement down onto the foot. The Full Contact CuffTM – holds the sock up onto the lower leg; it accomplishes this with enough surface area along with a trapezoidal shape to match the shape of the leg, with the right amount of compression and stretch to allow it stay in place on the leg while the foot is in motion. These three critical elements translate to better performance for an athlete, pro or participant. With the right size, socks won’t chaffe or rub. FITS also come in five size groups to make certain your FIT is the right one. www.fitssocks.com
