MASCOT® WORKWEAR

Work socks

We have put together a programme that makes it possible for you to choose top qualitysocks for every working situation. In order to ensure comfort all day long, your work socks must be hard-wearing, have good padding and fit the foot better than ordinary socks. That is why MASCOT uses the best raw materials and technologies.

Socks must manage moisture

Your feet exude moisture. The socks’ job is to manage the moisture so your feet do not feel wet and thereby get cold. Work socks made from synthetic materials are good at transporting sweat away and drying quickly. If moisture can leave the shoe quickly, synthetic materials are a good choice.

Work socks should regulate heat

Socks with wool content are usually thicker and thereby warmer. Wool also has impressive moisture and temperature-regulating properties. Wool can absorb a lot of moisture, and as a result of the wool’s water-repellent surface, it will not feel wet against the skin. Wool even retains temperature-regulating properties, even when wet. Thick work socks will also usually relieve pressure on the sole of the feet.

ECS

All MASCOT's work socks are fitted with ECS – Ergonomic Comfort Support. It is a technology that places extra soft reinforcements in the socks where the foot really needs padding for the sake of comfort. For example, under the heel and toe or under the whole foot. Several models also feature specially designed right and left socks with comfort zones.

Moisture Management

The selected fabric (such as Merino Wool and COOLMAX®) has the ability to absorb moisture and distribute it away from your feet. Moisture Management ensures maximum breathability which keeps your feet dry.

Merino Wool

Work socks of Merino wool, because of their excellent properties, keep your feet warm. Merino fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture, move it away and evaporate it. The fabric feels dry even when wet.

COOLMAX socks

COOLMAX® is the market leader with regard to moisture dispersion. COOLMAX® quickly transports moisture away from your feet and disperses it through the fabric where it can evaporate quickly. Work socks containing COOLMAX® are soft, breathable and quick-drying.

LYCRA

LYCRA® adds comfort, fit, shape retention, durability and freedom of movement. LYCRA ® can be stretched up to seven times its initial length before springing back to the original position once tension is released. LYCRA ® gives stability and holds the sock in place on the foot.

 

 

 

Good advice for choice of socks

 

While footwear ensures support and stability, socks provide good comfort for skin and feet. The most important tasks for socks are to regulate heat, manage moisture and ensure that the feet are comfortable in the footwear. Comfort is paramount when you are wearing work socks for 10 - 12 hours a day.

 

Choose the correct size

 

When you choose footwear, you usually ensure that there is a lot of room. When you choose socks, you should do the opposite. A good work sock should fit the foot tightly, and hug the foot snugly with elastic materials. It is almost better to choose a sock that is a little too small than one that is too big. That is because socks that fit loosely crease, and can give you blisters. Remember when choosing, thick work socks have a tendency to become a little looser that thin socks.
