Socks are unquestionably the most underrated, underappreciated and misunderstood pieces of apparel we depend on daily. A pair of AEM logo sport socks, for example, may look cool enough, but they’re still just a pair of sport socks - that is until you understand sock history 101. Once you appreciate the back-story and the degree of technology in a pair of AEM socks, you’ll never put your shoes on the same way again.

In the eighth century Greeks wore socks made from matted animal hair, and during the tenth century, due to the difficulty of producing socks, they were a luxury item reserved only for the rich. It wasn’t until 1589 that William Lee invented the first machine that wove socks. Time was the inspiration that motivated Lee’s discovery, as he felt his wife was spending too much of it weaving socks, precious time he felt could be better spent on other endeavors.

Up until the twentieth century socks were made from wool, cotton, hemp or silk, but being that feet are one of the sweatiest parts of the body and socks help absorb the sweat, and move it to parts of the foot where it can evaporate easier - a sock evolution was clearly in order. This is where AEM sock technology comes to play - AEM ankle high sport socks are made of 100% soft, breathable bamboo yarn.

Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of the bamboo grass, and it has been growing in popularity because of its many uniquely superior properties, and because it’s more sustainable than most other textile fibers. Bamboo is comfortably soft and light, yet remarkably durable. It possesses excellent wicking properties, and is to some extent antibacterial. Many people who experience allergic reactions to other natural fibers, such as wool or hemp, do not experience this issue with bamboo. The fiber is naturally smooth and round without spurs or chemical treatment, meaning there’s nothing to irritate the skin.

Back to sock history. During the 1950s sock hops became a popular source of entertainment. It offered teens the opportunity to get together, dance, and be carefree without shoes on. In Japan a special kind of sock called tabi was created so they could be worn with various thonged footwear.
