Chinese sports socks manufacturer China Access Marketing Ltd. (CAML) has introduced a new range of engineered performance socks for cyclists and runners based on Advansa’s ThermoCool polyester fibres. CAML is known for its winter sports and trekking socks.
CAML says has chosen to bring Advansa’s ThermoCool innovation to its sock lines for the coming season in order to provide high quality, dual functionality and ultimate comfort, designed to fit the needs of outdoors users. The socks are said to keep the feet comfortable through the longest activity.
CAML’s new range incorporates ThermoCool fibres which have a hollow core and a channelled surface. The sock aims to help prevent moisture build-up in demanding conditions and regulate the temperature whilst managing moisture to keep feet dry and comfortable all day long. ThermoCool is designed to provide enhanced air circulation coupled with moisture management during physical exertion without any chemical treatments.
The new sock line is already available on the Asian Market, as CAML’s Kawin Lui explains: “We are always looking for ways to create distinctive performance socks that provide a broad range of benefits that wearers require,” explained Kawin Lui of CAML. “We strive to give full support to customers through continuous material innovation and product development, tailor-making solutions for customers.
