Weâ€™ve focused on a variety of different items you might want to take with you to the gym, including fitness-tracking watchesÂ and even shoes. Â One thing weâ€™ve never really talked about were socks. Â And, well, why would we? Â Socks themselves are pretty boring, and most folks just are going to opt for whatever inexpensive cotton ones they can find. Â Myself, Iâ€™ve become very partial to the Darn Tough wool socks, and use those for my primary workout (and daily wear) socks, as theyâ€™re warm, moisture wicking, and pretty odor resistant. Â Well, these socks fromÂ MP Magic Socks are looking to take the odor resistance up a few notches.
How are you going to make a sock – or any piece of clothing – odor resistant? Â Itâ€™s going to boil down to the materials. Â Wool, for example, is just naturally odor-resistant, unlike cotton which seems to soak up whatever it can find. Â With theÂ MP Magic Socks, theyâ€™ve focused in on what causes odor in socks, primarily bacteria. Â To combat that, theyâ€™ve infused three different metals – silver, copper, and zinc. Â These all attack the problem in slightly different ways, but together, they all work to keep the bacteria in your socks under control, helping to keep odor down.
Now, if youâ€™re just headed to the gym, and then the socks hit the wash, the odor isnâ€™t the biggest thing in the world. Â But, what about being out and about all day in hot weather, and then kicking off your shoes at the end of the day? Â If you could keep things smelling, well, if not like flowers, at least not something awful, thatâ€™s a win. Â And that is precisely what theÂ MP Magic Socks are offering.
Their KickstarterÂ is currently live, and you can pick up a pair of socks (either sport or holiday) starting at just $9, which isnâ€™t too bad to try something out to see if they work for you. Â I canâ€™t vouch for these, as weâ€™ve not seen them in person (yet, but weâ€™re working on that) but it seemed like an interesting idea. Â Then again, they donâ€™t carry the lifetime warranty that my Darn Toughâ€™s do, so, itâ€™s a mixed bag. Â If foot odor is something youâ€™re fighting against, though, theseÂ MP Magic Socks might be something youâ€™ll want to check out. Â Campaign Page
