Once again, KENTWOOL -- the makers of "the world's best golf sock" -- have a special sock available to commemorate next week's U.S. Open at Merion.
Here's the release from KENTWOOL:
To celebrate the U.S. Open, a special KENTWOOL Tour Profile performance sock in red, white and blue is available at www.kentwoolsocks.com.
Slated to be worn during championship week by Bubba Watson, the commemorative design ($19.95) is crafted from a proprietary blend of fine merino wool and high-tech fibers creating a micro-climate system for superior moisture wicking and odor control.
By infusing its footwear fibers with air, KENTWOOL provides cushioning at micro-stress points along the foot enhancing comfort, boosting energy levels and reducing abrasion for a 100-percent blister-free guarantee.
While originally thought that the USA sock would be a "limited-edition" style, because of its success it will remain on the KENTWOOL website as a part of the Tour Profile collection.
