Paka Introduces The First Ever High-Performance Alpaca Running Socks
May 27, 2022
Los Angeles, CA (May 27, 2022)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ –Paka, the sustainable alpaca fiber apparel company, has launched the first-ever high-performance alpaca running socks.
Tested in both the Boston and L.A. marathons, the socks blend Paka’s dedication to sustainable sourcing and manufacturing with high-performance design that stands up to countless miles of road and trail running.
“We’re connecting people to where their clothing comes from,” said Paka CEO and founder Kris Cody. “Creating the first ever alpaca running socks was a natural progression for Paka, because alpacas fibers hold innate technologies, such as thermoregulation and breathability. In addition to providing long lasting comfort, these socks are stink-free; alpaca fiber has the lowest water retention rate of all natural fibers.”
The socks are designed with a blend of 41 percent baby alpaca fiber, 50 percent recycled nylon, 8 percent bamboo, and 1 percent nylon. The socks feature Paka’s signature Triple-Sole Cushion™ for extra padding, a compression arc to prevent friction and blistering, a side ventilation mesh for breathability, and a supportive back tab. They’re fully machine-washable and designed to withstand a lifetime; if you are able to wear them down, Paka will replace them as part of a lifetime guarantee.
Launching on May 26, the socks are available in packs of three for $42 in white, light gray, charcoal.
