, Bangkok Thailand (PressExposure) July 28, 2008 -- YPSILANTI, MI (NetSweets) July 26, 2008 -- Start every day on the right foot with Maggie's Organics new Urban Hiker socks, made with Certified Organic Wool. No matter if you're running up a craggy trail, walking around town or conquering the highest mountain of deskwork, Maggie's Urban Hikers are the one-stop, go-to sock for anyone serious about foot comfort. Wearers appreciate the versatility which stems from the fact that they utilize the same technology as hiking socks, yet are stylish and breathable enough to wear on a daily basis.
Urban Hikers are a departure from typical wool socks because of the delightful feel of organic woolÃ¢â¬âboth Tall and Short heightsÃ¢â¬âand remarkably cushioned sole that fits well in any shoe or boot. And, thanks to the hygroscopic properties of wool, the Urban Hiker absorbs moisture to keep your feet dry all day long. In fact, when it comes to wicking away perspiration or water, wool can absorb up to one-third of its own weight unlike many synthetic fibers which can only absorb two to three percent of moisture before they begin to feel damp.
Consumers who have tried the Urban Hikers describe them as "flannel for the feet" and find the Certified Organic Wool to be improbably flexible and surprisingly lightweight. Available in sand or black, these must-have socks are washer friendly, fit snugly around the feet and ankles and do not twist or slouch like some of their lesser peers.
The Urban Hiker is the next step in a long line of durable and comfortable wool socks from Maggie's Organics. Using only 100% organic feed and sustainable grazing practices, the wool in Maggie's socks is free of synthetic pesticides, antibiotics and carbonization. In addition, Urban Hikers are made with Certified Organic Merino Wool, translating into an even softer product.
