WIGWAMÂ® INTRODUCES NEW SPRING STYLES WITHOUT ANY WOOL
SHEBOYGAN, Wis., Sept. 16, 2008 â€“ Wigwam, an authentic American brand of socks, is redefining its Sport, Outdoor and Health competencies with technologically advanced socks that make any adventure, from running a marathon to just walking around, a great experience. Pulling inspiration from both fashion and functional detail, Wigwam’s new socks offer sport, outdoor and health enthusiasts a high-quality, durable base for any level of activity.
Interesting new patterns and colors combine with high-technology fibers that offer breathable, hydrophilic (moisture absorbing) and hydrophobic (moisture-repelling) properties to keep feet dry, comfortable and blister-free. Some of the new styles in Sport like the IronmanÂ® Fast Lane Pro and IronmanÂ® Vapor Pro are designed for winning performance. Patented moisture control combines with a secure, foot-hugging fit and unbeatable comfort that refreshes feet. The IronmanÂ® Voltage Pro and IronmanÂ® Thunder Pro Low-Cut offer a stylized tab at the back of the sock giving them flair as well as helping keep the sock in place.
In Outdoor competency, the new Vibe is a wool-free sock with the Dri-releaseÂ® effect, keeping feet dry while FreshGuardÂ® keeps feet feeling refreshed and cared for. The Wind Swept, Diamond Delight and D’vine socks combine very delicate patterns, captivating colors, soft, foot hugging fit and are completely wool-free.
The new Health sock, Travel Pro, extends over the calf to regulate moisture evaporation, enhance circulation, improve stamina and reduce muscle fatigue. Also, the new Glide has the durability to be a sport sock but also keeps feet clean and odor free with FreshGuardÂ® and dry with Dri-releaseÂ®.
â€œWhether you are walking around the lake or competing at the Ironman level, Wigwam has the socks to fit your needs. Our Sport, Outdoor and Health competencies offer a versatile mix that gives consumers more individual and personal choices in their socks. It always feels better when you have the right ones on,â€ said Margaret Chesebro, field-marketing manager for Wigwam.
