Torch Socks [$15.95 – $17.95] gets its name because they shine brightly in the darkness thanks to new 3M Scotchlight reflective technology. It features four-way stretch, so it won’t crack, plus it features amazing 500-candlepower reflectivness. That’s some bright-ass reflectivness! The Torch Socks are smart design in action. Constructed with a unique engineered blend of fibers—merino wool, acrylic, polyester, nylon, and Lycra—for supreme comfort and performance. The thoughtfully designed mix of materials offers perfect proportions of breathability, stretch, compression, and durability. These aren’t screen-printed reflective ink, the Torch Socks’ 3M Scotchlight reflective heat transfer is much brighter. Zone-padded heel and toe areas offer thicker, reinforced protection against wear, while a thinner knit pattern at the top of the foot, in the shoe-tongue zone, offers a trim anatomical fit for maximum comfort in cycling and running shoes. The engineered compression pattern at the arch and Achilles tendon boosts circulation while offering comfortable support. Torch Socks are now my favorite socks for athletic activities. Showers Pass clothing is technically engineered cycling gear for racers, commuters, messengers and everyday cycling enthusiasts.
