The silver within the socks has the best possible thermodynamic properties, regulating the temperature within the shoe.
Carnation Silversocks make it possible to use the existing energy generated by the feet and the environment to actively regulate temperature through heat transfer.
Maintaining a regulated temperature can help reduce the risk of blistering caused by excessive friction and heat build up. Silversocks will keep feet cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Antimicrobial & Anti-Odour
Silver is recognised in the medical community as a very effective antimicrobial agent, proven to kill over 400 different types of bacteria. The X-Static Silver fibres use pure silver to inhibit the growth of odour-causing bacteria and fungi in the socks.
Bacteria are only one source of foot odour. Ammonia and denatured proteins are also significant causes of odour in hosiery products.
Carnation Silversocks neutralise ammonia and denatured proteins because both bind readily to silver resulting in instant odour reduction.
X-Static Silver eliminates 99.9% of bacteria in less than one hour of exposure.
Carnation Silversocks’ hydrophobic yarn system allows a greater amount of moisture to be drawn through the fibres for subsequent evaporation. As a result moisture is transferred away from the body faster, creating a more comfortable environment.
Carnation Silversocks reduce static electricity and electrostatic discharge. Silver is the most electrically conductive element. Electrical charges normally created by two non-conductive materials rubbing together are instantly dissipated by X-Static Silver so socks stay static free.
X-Static is made with pure silver and contains no chemicals. It is safe for people and for the environment.
