I receive a lot of golf equipment, accessories and apparel throughout the year but honestly one of my favorite things to receive in a nice, new pair of golf socks.
Yup, golf socks. Nothing like a nice, fresh, quality pair of golf socks. The ones I just received are by Swiftwick and I tested a number of them.
Remember when a sock was a sock? Not anymore. Swiftwick puts a lot of technology into their socks for all types of athletes (and non-athletes) including, of course, golfers.
My favorite was, The PURSUIT™. It’s such a comfortable, plush sock. It’s made from 21 gauge American Merino Wool.
The site says this:
The PURSUIT comes fused with the natural and thermal properties of super fine, 36 micron Merino Wool sourced from farmers right here in America AND is the only 200-needle compression wool sock on the market.
They just didn’t think about the basics of a sock they thought about EVERYTHING, like:
No seams – all one construction, arch support, impact padding, full-cushioned foot bead, high density weave (for “no-bunch freedom” of movement), compression cuff (so it STAYS on the foot) and more.
The other ones I received were the ASPIRE™ and the VIBE™. The ASPIRE are true compression socks. They fit like a glove and are like another layer of skin. I’m not quite used to these yet but find I’m wearing them more often.
These are thinner, lighter socks. They’re made with US manufactured T-66 Nylon (around a core Spandax) throughout the sock. Their Managed Compression™ prevents bunching and hot spots by supporting all 3 arches in the foot. Nice!
Here’s the intro for the VIBE:
Unique in the Swiftwick family, the VIBE line is a little more plush, and a lot more colorful. Using a half height terry loop throughout the footbed, the VIBE offers a highly consistent, thicker feeling with linked toe construction and slightly less compression. To carry the color, it’s flat knit, super thin upper is smooth and snug.
Honestly, you can get a little overwhelmed at the site. There’s so much information. My recommendation is to start with the “Sport” tab in the left nav, that way you can start by targeting your sport and move from there.
Or, you can get and test a few different product lines, like I did. They even have a SockClub of the month! Now that’s something that would be fun to receive every month!
They have a great selection of colors (including neon ones) styles and heights, materials (natural, synthetic) and, of course, sizes.
Swiftwick produces a high quality, innovative socks that will make your feet sing and most importantly, take care of those valuable appendages while enjoying the sports and activities you love.
