There are few smells worse than sweaty socks, so we are all about Y Athletics' SilverAir's Crew Socks - a fancy, high-performance sock that's created with pure silver to eliminate odors. ::Praise Hands::
The silver creates an ionic shield against bacteria that causes the nasty stink. This technology is used in both military and astronaut gear to keep their clothes fresh for longer periods of time in the field. So, isn't it about time we started using it, too?
The formula works so well that a fan, Tristan, test-drove the sock prototype on a two-week, 800-mile cycling trip from New York to LA and didn't change his socks once. Um, that's INSANE.
In addition to their crazy smart technology, the socks are made with top-quality Australian Merino wool and mesh ventilation panels to keep your feet cool.
This isn't the first odorless product to come from Y Athletics - the first product was a t-shirt, followed by an ankle sock that became the most successful crowdfunded sock ever, according to Mashable. After fans requested a sock that could be worn to work or out, Y Athletics came out with the crew style. Here's what the ankle socks look like:
Currently, the only way to get them is to place an order through the already-funded Kickstarter campaign, but they will eventually be available on Y Athletics' website. They retail for $25 a pair, but there are plenty of deals available through Kickstarter. Right now, the colors available are black and gray.
We think we know what we're getting bae for the holidays this year! His gym socks have def seen better days.
