The unique ingredient in these socks is the Polygiene technology. Made with low concentrations of silver salt, which has anti-microbial properties and is naturally present in water and soil, to safely eliminate the ability for bacteria and fungi to grow. This is only active on the sock itself and does not interfere with the skins bacterial flora. The added benefit of Polygiene odour control will not wash out as the technology is bound and permanently integrated into the sock. The Marathon Fresh is also made with LYCRA SPORT fibre to ensure a close, comfortable fit.
The Company was formed in 1992, by Dr. Ron Hill, MBE*, the former European and Commonwealth marathon champion. At the time he saw an opportunity to develop a range of technical performance running socks. With a PhD, in Textile Chemistry, he was able to combine his technical expertise and running background to produce a core range to cater for the needs of the runner.
Major developments have included the launch of a complete range of socks, in particular the Mono Skin Supreme – ‘Probably the most technical sock in the world’ and the new Twin Skin range – ‘Probably the best double-layer socks in the world’ In addition, the company now offers a comprehensive range of accessories, including: reflectives, hats, gloves, water carriers, neoprene products and lots, lots, more! The company has continued to grow and is now one of the UK’s leading brands of technical running socks and accessories.
