BLISTER FREE GUARANTEE
1000 Mile is best known for its double layer, anti-blister system. The ‘sock within a sock’ design was introduced to the UK by 1000 Mile over 20 years ago with the very first Original sock. The inner layer stays with the foot as the outer layer moves with the shoe, thus eliminating friction on the skin and protecting your feet from blisters. Designed with the purpose of protecting not just athletes but also people with serious health issues like Diabetes where foot health is essential.
Soft. Light. Surprisingly strong.
A dynamic, speciality fibre, Tactel® fibre creates garments that are soft, supple, smooth, breathable and lightweight. According to rigid testing, Tactel® fibre is at least twice as soft and 20% lighter than most other fibres. It also dries 8 times faster than cotton. In addition to being soft and lightweight, Tactel® fibre is strong. The inherent strength of Tactel® fibre enables the production of fabrics that are 3 times as strong as those made with natural fibres.
Many of the 1000 Mile Double Layer socks have a 100% Tactel® inner lining which helps to reduce friction on the skin but also helps keep feet cool and dry during activities.
Anti-odour. Anti-bacterial. Anti-fungal.
Cupron Enhanced yarns use embedded copper fibre technology which resists the growth of bacteria and fungi that causes odour and poor foot health. Cupron Technology has been independently tested in laboratory settings against generally accepted clinical test protocols, using standard test conditions. Under these conditions, Cupron Technology is consistently found to be non-toxic, non-sensitizing and non-irritating to the skin, with no adverse events reported.
The copper oxide that is the basis for Cupron Technology is made from recycled copper. When Cupron Technology is integrated into textile fibres and other polymers it is typically non-leaching or minimally leaching and so has no negative environmental impacts. Cupron yarns can be found in 3 different styles from our walking and our sports range.
Merino Wool is one of softest types of wool available and is perfect for regulating body temperature. The wool provides warmth without overheating the wearer and it’s moisture wicking properties combined with being slightly moisture repellent allow the wearer to remain dry. Merino yarns can be found in up to 8 different styles from our range.
Fabrics knitted with NILIT® Breeze Fibres keep wearers cooler and more comfortable during and after physical activities and even in hot weather. Enjoy UV protection, cooling effect, soft feel and a comfortable fit. You can find the NILIT® Breeze yarn in our new Breeze Sport Sock range.
NILIT Heat is a unique yarn, created with coffee charcoal, for natural insulation, to keep wearers warmer in cold temperatures. Wicking, breathable and with excellent absorption and moisture control to provide a dry comfort for all day wear. Anti-bacterial and deodorising properties add to overall foot health. Best of all this yarn is environmentally friendly – making use of the natural surplus of coffee bean shells to create the coffee charcoal which works into the nylon fibre to create the end result of NILIT Heat.
PADDED ACHILLES HEEL
We have added a padded area to the heel of our Fusion range for additional support and to help protect the achilles. The warmth provided by the padding keeps the tendon supple, increasing the blood flow, reducing swelling and aiding recovery.
Heel Power fabric technology grips the heel firmly in place, so no slippage! This is now a feature on the Ultimate Tactel Sock, Tactel Anklet Sock, Trainer Liner, Ultimate Racket Sock and Lightweight Walking Socks.
WICKING INNER LAYER
All our doubler layer socks contain 100% Tactel® yarns which not only help to keep your feet cool but dry as well. The Tactel® material wicks moisture away from the foot to keep your feet at a comfortable temperature.
To help keep the foot cool we have developed ‘top venting’ with air flow channels on many of our styles.
The Mile Fusion sock is the first sock to offer padded zones on the heel and toe for protection and the double layer system for reduced friction. The fusion system can be found in our Fusion Sports sock, Fusion Walk Sock and the Fusion Services Sock.
COPPER FIBRES FOR FOOT HEALTH
Cupron Enhanced copper fibre technology found in our Ultra Performance Sock is proven to be effective against bacteria and fungus that causes odour, offering active protection throughout the life of the sock.
FLAT TOE SEAM
We use a Lin Toe® system to provide a completely flat toe seam on our All Terrain Sock, 2 Season, 3 Season and 4 Season sock. The Lin Toe® seam is a linking system on the outside of the sock instead of the traditional sewn closure.
