Philadelphia-based Footprint – a provider of socks, underwear and baby garments made with bamboo –
has introduced bamboo socks in a new anklet performance style. The unisex socks, available in
two-tone grey and natural, offer benefits including advanced arch support, mesh ventilation, a
reinforced heel and toe for durability, an ergonomic toe seam and a padded terry sole.
According to Footprint, its bamboo socks are an eco-friendly alternative to man-made-fiber
performance socks for athletes and diabetics. The socks contain a blend of nylon and 95-percent
bamboo fiber, which offers antibacterial, hypoallergenic and moisture-wicking properties.
