Outdoor and athletic socks made in Nottinghamshire, Great Britain by the Lowe family. Sock making goes back many generations in the Lowe household but it did skip a generation or two. Up until recently that is, when Ben Lowe re-started the sock business with SockMine. Their socks are about prioritising comfort in specific athletic endeavours such as skiing, snowboarding and, of course, cycling. Technical benefits include ankle and Achilles protection, wicking fabric, extra padding, reinforced heels and toes and flex-lines to prevent bunching.
