The Lifespan of a Flight Sock

Flight Team

We've had some questions about how well Flight Socks will hold up over time. From an image standpoint (will it fade?) to a wear-and-tear standpoint (when will it get holes in it?). These are great and important questions - because while we're not selling a $40 pair of socks (and yes, sock lovers, you know those are out there in abundance), we want our customers to be really happy and feel like they've made not only an exciting purchase, but a smart one, as well. Here are some photos of two socks - the Rock Solid Sock - one has been worn by a 16 year old boy for about two months - school, running, lounging, etc - and washed 15+ times. The other is brand spanking new. See if you can tell which is which.

 Okay - so it's not too hard to tell which is the 'well loved' sock...it's the one on the left. But after two months of heavy teenage use, and 15+ wash/dry cycles, it really looks great. No thin spots or holes either - this is a tough sock, with high-quality image retention.
