Adventure awaits in Swazi’s new Ibex sock
Take on the harshest winter conditions in New Zealand based cult-clothing brand Swazi Apparel’s new full-length Ibex sock. Blending together the best sock technology with the enduring performance of traditional merino wool, the Ibex is engineered to be hard-wearing, yet incredibly comfortable.
Featuring the latest spinning technology, NuYarn® merino that releases the natural performance characteristics of wool fibre twisted out by traditional spinning methods, the sock’s body will dry five times faster, is 35 percent warmer with more stretch than conventional merino wool, plus 47 percent stronger.
Hunt harder and higher with no worry of foot discomfort thanks to the Ibex’s double comfort top, cushioned sole and shin protection pads. Great freedom of movement is offered from flex panels placed around the ankle. With an elastic support system knitted throughout the sock, a firmer fit is guaranteed.
Ready to be put through its paces, the Ibex sock is reinforced with Nylon for extra durability, while the Paladin protection pad, placed across the top of the foot helps prevent shoes from exerting excessive downward pressure. This enhances blood flow for better circulation in cold extremes and reduces heat swelling and foot fatigue from exercise.
Davey Hughes, founder and creative director of Swazi, commented: “Taking inspiration from the ibex – a sure-footed and sturdy wild goat found in some of the most uninhibited places of the world – we wanted to create a sock to help hunters reach those tough, hard fought for heights. With comfort and durability guaranteed, we know you’ll love the Ibex as much as we do.”
RRP: $44.99 NZD / $32.00 USD / £39.99 GBP / €52.50 EUR
