Apparel company Maison Impeccable launched a campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds for their line of Stealth Socks, which look ordinary, but are designed with cutting-edge technologies that combined, eliminate the odor and moisture that build up during daily wear and activity. Smashing their original funding goal in 24 hours, the socks have raised over $30,000 from backers in their first week.
Stealth Socks are constructed with pure silver, which prevents the growth of odoremitting microbes and porous carbon, which absorbs any remaining odors and wicks away sweat. The socks contain numerous features that enhance comfort and breathability including strategically placed cushioning and ventilation, and will never fall or shift during wear thanks to the builtin arch support band and selfadjusting cuff. The result, they claim, is a sock that outperforms traditional fabrics and even those built for outdoor activities.
Drawing inspiration from the archetypal superspy, the team set out to create products to help wearers stay effortlessly sharp even when active or under stress.
“We designed our socks to work in any situation,” said founder and former business consultant Ben Yelian. “They’re formal enough for the boardroom but packed with subtle tech to keep you cool, regardless of how that meeting with the boss might be going.”
For Maison Impeccable, versatility was a key element in the Stealth Socks’ design process. They were engineered to be fine and soft enough to be worn with dress shoes, yet comfortable and durable enough to be worn casually with sneakers or boots. The socks’ polymeric matrix thread design retains the nano-agents required to remain effective even after one hundred-plus washes, which the brand promises makes them “built to last for adventures to come”.
For a limited time, backers can purchase the socks for a special preorder price of $29 for two pairs of Stealth Socks in the patterns of their choice. Maison Impeccable ships anywhere in the world and free within the United States. To preorder the Stealth Socks, visit bit.ly/StealthShare.
