A new L.A. based start-up is attempting to turn something as basic as a sock into a military grade piece of equipment Pictured above is Socrates Sock Co. crown jewel, a sock that is infused with Kevlar. Most might think that involving a material as tough as Kevlar in a sock is unneeded. However, using military grade Kevlar|Carbon Matrix on socks ensures that those worn out bottoms and toe holes are a thing of the past.
After serving his time in the military, founder Cam Carter , knew all too well how badly socks can be used and abused. While doing some post-military with the Italian government, Carter was inspired by the Milan fashion scene combined with some declassified military technology.
He took his inspiration and ran with it quickly establishing a team of business & fashion mind, created a Kickstarter page, and introduced the world to Socrates Sock Co. They also made a pledge to keep everything from production to designing made 100% here in the U.S.A . In less then 18 days Socrates Sock Co. have managed to raise over $50,000 through their Kickstarter page securing the start-up capital needed to get their project off the ground.
The best part is that these socks only cost $30 and are engineered to last.
