What makes Kentwool socks so special? Aside from the fact that so many golf professionals swear by them, they are some of the best designed socks ever made.
Kentwool socks blend Super-Fine Merino wool with other natural and engineered fibers to create a sock that conforms to your foot's shape. Merino wool is one of the softest types of wool available, and Kentwool pairs that up with spandex to create an exact fit to your foot. A nylon vent system, combined with Sorbtek polyester and Cocona fiber provide for maximum moisture management, keeping your feet dry whether you're just getting a quick hour in at the range or if you're going for 36 holes.
By focusing so much on moisture management and keeping the foot as dry as possible, they help solve a couple other foot problems. Excessive moisture in shoes and especially on socks are contributing factors to blister development, so by keeping the feet drier, Kentwool is able to do a lot to reduce blisters from forming. The other factor that contributes to blisters forming on feet is friction, and Kentwool has addressed that by adding Cocona fiber, which significantly reduces friction and fabric abrasions. Kentwool is so confident in their design that they actually guarantee that you will not get blisters while wearing their socks.
The other problem Kentwool is able to address through advanced moisture management is odor. Body odor is caused by bacterial growth, and bacteria thrive in warm, moist environments. By combining moisture-wicking fabrics with fabrics designed to speed up evaporation rates, Kentwool socks are constantly pulling moisture away from the foot. These materials also resist bacterial colonization, which makes it harder for fabrics to retain bad smells caused by bacteria growth.
On top of all that (or perhaps because of it), Kentwool socks help keep your feet from fatiguing as fast. This means that you can play more without feeling as tired, or simply feel less tired after playing as you usually would.
