Your feet will love you for it.

If you think that socks are 'just socks,' we feel bad for your feet. Not surprisingly, Capo shares our level of compassion and concern, and accordingly, it created its new Meryl 8 200 Needle Socks.

We understand that these socks feature a rather confusing title. So, let us break it down for you. Starting at the beginning, the Meryl stands for the socks' material, Meryl Skinlife. This fabric was chosen for hypoallergenic and bacteriostatic characteristics. By this, we mean that Skinlife has been engineered to maintain the ideal balance of bacteria on the skin. Yes, despite what the chronic handwashers have to say, some bacteria is actually beneficial to our skin's health. Obviously, though, an exceedingly high level of bacteria creates its own set of problems. However, maintaining a natural presence, as Skinlife does, creates the ideal level of biological comfort. Additionally, within this balance, Skinlife prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria. So, your socks and feet will remain free of stink, even after long, hot days in the saddle.

For the '8' in the title, Capo is simply designating the socks 8cm cuff -- fairly Euro, indeed. And for the '200 Needle,' Capo is telling us that it used a 200-needle machine for the socks' construction. Why so many? Because the more the fibers that you're able to place in one square inch, the finer the fibers that you're able to use. Accordingly, Capo was able to create a dense, conforming fabric knit without sacrificing breathability, softness, or by adding any additional bulk to the socks. As a result, you'll find that these socks are exceedingly durable and supportive, yet highly breathable and quick-drying.

The Capo Meryl 8 200 Needle Socks are available in the colors Black and White and in the sizes Small/Medium and Large/X-Large.

One of the softest, most breathable and all out comfortable socks I've ever owned. Texture on the bottom makes your feet feel like they're not even touching the bottom of your shoes. Keeps the air and blood flowing for total comfort all day. Great option from CAPO if you don't want to go with some of their more compression oriented socks.
