Yes, there is such a thing as performance golf socks

October 06, 2014

Performance golf socks might not be a product you ever thought you'd be in the market for, but hear us out. Kentwool already has a strong following among tour pros who need to be discerning about what they wear on their feet given they spend all day on them while at work. The company's new KW series builds on the company's reputation while address a new niche in the market.

With sneaker and spikeless shoes continuing to trend on the course, Kentwool's KW are thinner socks with a more responsive in-shoe feel for softer soles. While still wind spun from Kentwool's proprietary merino-wool base, the KW is also blended with bamboo fibers to give the thinner sock the company's standard level of strength and durability. Sure, $20 a pop sounds steep but, they'll outlast the rest of your cotton and acrylic socks in for sure. In fact, try keeping your feet warm and dry this fall with the KW Kentwools and you may never go back to cotton on the course again.
