Showers Pass' new waterproof breathable socks

Published December 4, 2013
PORTLAND, OR (BRAIN) — Showers Pass has launched a waterproof-breathable sock for cycling, running, skiing and other outdoor activities.

The new Crosspoint WP sock provides moisture control while still feeling like a normal sock.

The sock has a three-layer bonded construction; an Artex waterproof-breathable membrane is sandwiched between the knit outer layer and moisture-wicking Coolmax FX nylon lining. A touch of Spandex ensures a snug fit.

“When you’re talking about outdoor sports in winter, it is critical to protect your feet and keep them dry,” said Kyle Ranson, Showers Pass's president. “Being miles from home in harsh conditions with wet feet can get you in serious trouble very quickly. But that’s no reason to be stuck in clammy, uncomfortable footwear. That’s why we’ve taken everything we know about temperature and moisture control in outerwear and poured it into the fabrication of these new socks.”

The Showers Pass Crosspoint Mid-Calf WP sock has an MSRP of $35.
