Hildebran, NC, January 5th, 2020 - DeFeet announced it has completed development on a new sock design, the Decompressor Medical. Made specifically for those who work in the medical and health care field, the Decompressor Medical has features to help medical workers deal with the unique demands of the workplace.

As the Covid 19 virus spreads, DeFeet has readied its first shipments of Decompressor Medical socks. “With our long history making socks and accessories for endurance sports like cycling and running, we knew we could craft socks that help medical workers be more comfortable in their jobs,” said Shane Cooper, Founder and Chief Sockologist of DeFeet. “We pushed hard throughout 2020 to develop socks that could also help keep our health workers safer.” Cooper added “We experimented with a lot of fit and fiber combinations, and we found what we were looking for.”  DeFeet chose an anti-bacterial, antimicrobial, anti-fungal fiber made with COPPTECH technology, a Copper Zinc yarn. The yarn allows the sock to inhibit the growth of microbes that can accumulate on the feet and lower legs and can reduce their spread to extremities that come into contact with those areas.  

While many companies joined the fight against Covid by switching their production to make facemasks, DeFeet chose to stay with its core competency: knitting socks at its own factory in Hildebran, North Carolina. The choice was based on where the company believed it could contribute the most. “Long workdays, standing and walking for hours at a time, that’s really hard on the feet and legs. That fatigue affects the whole body and our ability to focus on helping others,” Cooper said. The Decompressor Medical has a lightweight sheer knee-high fit using DeFeet’s world-renowned Aireator® mesh fabric. The result is a subtle compression that supports the entire lower leg, making it better suited for the rigors of the medical profession. 

The all-new DeFeet DeCompressor employs comfortable 15-20mmHG compression providing all-day support to help keep medical workers comfortable. The natural COPPTECH yarns hold feet in a healthier, low-moisture environment. Decompressor Medical is available in 3 lengths and 4 sizes. DeFeet is known worldwide for quality and covers every pair of medical socks with a Five Year Satisfaction Guarantee. The company is even offering the Decompressor Medical direct to medical professionals for 50% off the retail price for a limited time. MSRP is $40.00 and currently $20.00 to those with a medical card. There is a five pair limit per customer.
