New York—For those who live—and run—in the fast lane, United Legwear has just the thing: Puma Run Fast socks, a group of technologically advanced performance socks aimed at dedicated runners.
Made from a microfiber/nylon body that affords natural moisture wicking plus mesh ventilation for breathability, the Run Fast line boast fashion as well as function. Styles include men’s and women’s in colorways including yellow/blue, orange/gray, purple/black and even some pops of neon.
“I’m a runner and suffered from plantar fasciitis, a condition caused when tissue on the bottom of the foot is overused and stretched too much,” said Isaac Ash, president/ceo at United Legwear Co. “I wanted to put something out into the market that could alleviate tension on the bottom of the foot and on the Achilles tendon. Our new Puma Run Fast line has special comfort features–cushioned heel and toe, a Y-heel gore for better fit, and a built-in Achilles protector. All of these features improve stability and lower the impact on the strike zone.”
The socks will be available beginning in January 2012 in Puma stores and on shop.puma.com. Suggested retails on both men’s and women’s styles are $18 for a two-pair pack. (212)391-4143
