You have the right clubs and the right ball and the right swing, but do you have the socks you need to succeed?
WHEN TOUR pros use a piece of equipment without getting paid, you know it must be good. Such is the case with the Kentwood Golf Sock, which was born when company CEO Mark Kent was playing in a pro-am on the Nationwide tour. After four days his feet were blistered and aching, so he decided to create the ultimate golf sock by using a combination of materials and design to provide extra cushioning, support and moisture control. According to Kent, here's how it works.
The fibers of a proprietary Merino wool blend expand to vent heat and moisture when hot, and contract when it's cool for warmth. Normally the muscles must work to perform these tasks. By doing them first, the sock reduces fatigue-causing lactic acid buildup.
Kent's Airspun yarn creates, in effect, a spring within the fibers giving the fabric an elasticity that disperses pressure throughout the sock to prevent blisters and reduce the strain on the foot.
Tightly woven sections with extra material provide additional cushioning in high-stress areas.
