Incredible comfort. Unmatched performance. No stink. The sock that changes everything.
Our mission is to simplify your lives with thoughtfully designed gear. With the SilverAir Sock, we set out to create a product that solves all the problems we associate with socks. This sock was built from the ground up and features our signature SilverAir technology which uses pure, natural silver to fight odor and keep your sock stink-free. It’s made from Merino Wool for superior comfort and has ventilation panels that keep your feet cool, dry, and insanely comfortable.
We are Y Athletics, and our mission is to simplify your life with thoughtfully designed gear you can fall in love with. To do that, we engineer each product from scratch, with materials and components tailored specifically towards them. By focusing on every single detail, we are able to strike the perfect balance between performance, comfort, and style. We don’t make too many products, but whatever we do make screams quality and craftsmanship.
After many months and hundreds of hours in development, we got the formula right for our socks. We are proud to introduce the SilverAir Sock - It’s beautiful. It’s comfortable. It’s odorless. It just works.
Development This is a brand new fabric. We sourced the finest merino wool from Australia, known for its natural performance and odor-resistant qualities. But wool by itself is not soft enough, so we added acrylic for superior comfort, nylon for durability, and spandex for stretch recoverability. Finally, we blended pure silver on the areas that accumulate the most sweat, which takes the odor-fighting capability of this sock to a whole new level, unlike anything you’ve experienced.
After fabrication comes construction and we iterated until it was just right. We used seamless knitting to create a sock without any stitches and added vent panels that allow airflow to keep your feet cool and comfortable. The sock is beautiful inside and out. After you’ve worn it a few times, you won’t be able to go back to anything else.
Testing We’ve been testing our socks rigorously over the last 9 months. A backer from our first campaign cycled 800 miles for two weeks wearing the same pair of SilverAir socks. A decathlon athlete wore them through his entire race and the socks stayed fresh. And, of course, we wear them every day ourselves. Every test led to improvement until we got them just right.
Production This is where you come in. We’re still a young brand that’s self-funded, and to bring these socks to market, we need to manufacture them at a moderate scale. Help us fund our first production batch of the SilverAir Sock and be the first to receive a pair… your support would mean the world to us.
