Technology of Twin City socks
proDRI Technology - Twin City products bearing the proDri logo are constructed with carefully selected pro-grade fabrics known for their hydrophobic, wicking (i.e. the ability to transport moisture away from the skin) and moisture management attributes. These products retain their insulating qualities, even when wet; and they act to help keep your feet dry. A dry foot retains warmth in the winter and coolness in the summer, and the absence of moisture next to the skin helps to minimize the risk of hot spots and blisters. On top of all this, Twin City's proDri fabrics have been put through rigorous abrasion testing at the Hosiery Technology Center in Hickory, North Carolina, so they’re durable and resilient. With proDri, you get a quick-drying sock that keeps sweaty feet comfortable and won’t fall apart.
Compression Technology - Compression zones in the ankle and/or arch of a sock provide a higher level of support, thereby reducing foot fatigue and aiding circulation. These zones also help prevent slippage inside the shoe and insure a proper fit for the life of the sock.
Blister Control Technology - Hot spots and blisters can be debilitating, so these socks offer a healthy dose of preventative in and through unique yarns that naturally reduce friction and wick away moisture, high-splice designs that provide extra shielding in problem areas, and/or dependable liners that add a base layer of protection.
Anti Microbial Technology - Twin City's Antimicrobial technology is best defined as built-in deodorant that effectively battles sock odor, even during periods of heavy perspiration. This is achieved this by way of high-grade yarns with embedded antimicrobial agents (not weak and short-lived wash-in treatments) that act to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi, the typical culprits behind unpleasant odor. And, you can count on this protection for the life of the sock.
