1000 Mile socks are so named because many of their styles guarantee no blisters or wear-out within 1000 miles of use! All 1000 Mile socks are a sock within a sock - the inner layer of a 1000 Mile sock stays with the foot, and the outer layer moves with the shoe, thus eliminating friction on the skin and reducing wear.
The 1000 Mile unique double layer cotton/nylon sock was initially developed as a medical aid for sufferers from poor circulation and foot associated problems, especially among diabetics. As the benefits and reputation of the sock spread, athletes became interested in the socks as a means of preventing blistering, and controlling perspiration during their training and competitive running programmes.
The range has been extensively expanded and is now one of the brand leaders for technical socks within the athletics market. In recent years, the 1000 Mile sock has been introduced into the outdoor market, with astonishing success, after exhibiting and introducing new products at every AutumnCOLA and GO Outdoors since 1996.
