Recognizing the need for a new system that helps regulate body temperature, wick moisture and control odor X-Static has launched a new technology called X Scent.
Human odor originates from bacteria living on skin surfaces. As these bacteria cells live out their lives, they expel waste in the form of an odorous gas. It is odor that becomes stronger over time from an influx of bacteria due to reproduction. High moisture areas are ideal breeding grounds for odor-emitting bacteria.
Silver ions, as an anti-microbial, have been tested and researched for years by the medical industry and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA recognizes silver as one of the best anti-microbials while remaining harmless to humans. Even the military has proven the bacteria-control effectiveness of silver fiber technology. To protect their feet from a wide variety of medical problems caused by microbes, troops wear socks made from X-Static while in the field for days on end.
To get these great features, the X-Scent socks use pure silver to eliminate odor by binding silver ions to ammonia and denatured proteins to eliminate the source of odor. The elimination cannot be washed out, as silver fiber is woven into the sock. To the naked eye, you won't notice a difference - but its in there.
Not only are the socks odor-killing, they are also thermodynamic and will keep you cooler in the summer by conducting and transferring heat build up away from your feet - keeping your feet cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Being highly breathable, your feet have a nice, fresh feel - even after a few repeat wears.
