Why Foot Huggies Equestrian Tall Boot Socks are made for YOU, the Equestrian:
Our Socks are made from:
COOLMAX® & LYCRA® are trademarks of INVISTA®
Our Sock is 70% COOLMAX® which qualifies us as a:
"COOLMAX® EXTREME: THE ULITIMATE PERFORMANCE FABRIC™ of INVISTA®" Brand.
Here is INVISTA®’s definition of COOLMAX® EXTREME Technology:
“COOLMAX® EXTREME technology effectively moves perspiration away from the body and out through the fabric where it can evaporate quickly. It meets our brand’s most demanding standards for moisture management, breathability, and durability.”
Our socks are a RIGHT sock and a LEFT sock!! You don’t wear your left shoe on your Right foot!
Since we all wear different size shoes, we make our socks in Small, Medium and Large. It makes sense, right?
Here is how our sock works for YOU:
CONSTRUCTION: Foot Huggies Equestrian Tall Boot Socks comes from feedback of top competitive riders, amateur riders, and equestrian enthusiasts. We spent years testing fabrics, different ideas on padding, sizing, hot and cold environments, washing, drying, you name and we tried it! We had tons of fun creating the best sock ever!
Our RESULTS: Amazing padding, Great Support, Invisible Toe Seam, Basket weave for light weight and thinness, COOLMAX® and LYCRA® Technology, all lend to a sock made for YOU, THE HIGH PERFORMANCE EQUESTRIAN!
What Does All This Technology Mean?
Basket weave allows a light weight sock with breathability and thinness where padding isn’t needed.YAY!
SUPPORT: Our 2” welt, ankle support and arch support keep your sock in place where it belongs! No more chasing your sock from down around your ankles!
PADDING: Through 3 years of research and development and my expertise as a 34 year licensed pedicurist, we created double padding in 6 key places:
Double padding inside the calf lends an extra barrier to help prevent bruising and soreness from your stirrup strap and saddle.
Extra padding along the Achilles tendon aids in relief from friction from your leather boot.
With continuous padding extending from the Achilles tendon wrapping around the heel to help keep your heels from slipping and, ya know: “heels down!”
Continuous padding extending along the bottom of your foot adding comfort and a barrier between the construction of the boot bottom and the delicate bones, tendons and soft tissue of your feet.
The padding continues up and around your toes, creating a reinforced toe box, helping keep your toe from tearing through your sock.
Back to why we have a left and right sock….With our invisible SEAM....
6. The ALL important Toe Box & Invisible Seam; Our seam closure is created on the same machine as the final step in finishing before being removed. Most other socks seam closures are done as a separate process leaving bulky corners which lead to calluses and corns where the seam ends and rubs.
Our invisible seam placement is one of the MOST IMPORTANT elements of our sock design!
-Our seam is placed high up, away from the end of the toes, just where your foot bones meet your toes.
-REASON: Calluses & Corns are created by poorly placed seams rubbing on joints & bones. Our seam fits on the sweet spot where there are no joints and bones! This is where my expertise in 34 years of doing pedicures comes in!
Toe Box: Our socks are a LEFT & RIGHT because our feet are a LEFT & RIGHT! We created a graduating toe box starting at he big toe down to the little toe allowing for a comfortable, roomy fit . With our creative
approach, we are able to have a fit that allows for your toes to grip your stirrup irons through your boot without a bunching sock getting in the way of your performance.
This also allows blood flow to your toes, keeping them awake! Happy Toes!
Foot Huggies: "Did you love the way they fit?
I was like "how can I get excited about a pair of socks?"...and then I wore them all day, I was like "wow these are really good socks!"
