FROM SANTA MONICA TO LAS VEGAS
The 2018 Relay Collection was inspired by the colors and landscapes of The Speed Project, a 340-mile unsanctioned relay race between Santa Monica and Las Vegas. We sent a team of four men and two women to put the kits through the most extreme wear-test ever in pursuit of the course record. Made from a naturally soft and odor-resistant merino blend, the Relay No-Show Socks stayed fresh even after two days of running.
BY MOTHER NATURE
Merino wool is nothing more than a kind of hair. Like our own hair, it’s constructed primarily of water-repellant keratin proteins. Because merino wool is soft enough to be worn against our own skin, it’s able to act much like our own hair would – providing warmth while wicking moisture away from the body.
Merino does absorb some moisture, but unlike cotton, it remains warm when wet, helping manage body temperature naturally, for a difference you’ll appreciate no matter what the weather report.
Over 340 miles, no detail in the name of performance is too small. In that sense, this no show is very literally more than meets the eye.
The rib band running through the middle adds structure, while the back tab prevents sock slippage and slouch. Open pique mesh on the top of the foot provides breathability in an overall lightweight, low volume sock that’s ideal for race day.
The bare-ankled cut keeps your silhouette sleek, particularly when sporting spikes, flats or minimalist trainers.
