Stinky-footed people of the world unite.
There will soon be a solution to those sweaty tootsies of yours that you have to display for all during TSA security checks. And there will now be a go-to source for feet that are always uncomfortable as you travel the world.
It’s a pair of socks that boast some intriguing technology.
We are referring to Stealth Socks, which won’t make your feet invisible but will presumably make you forget they are even there – in the best way imaginable.
You can get a pair of your own or find out more on these feet savers at its Kickstarter campaign, which is doing rather well at the moment.
With 21 days to go, as of this writing, it has raised over $80,000, which destroyed its goal of $10,000 by a healthy margin.
Here is a brief video that will introduce you to Stealth Socks:
As for the technology, Maison Impeccable boasts of having socks that are five times more efficient at resisting odor thanks to “bacteriostatic silver ions.”
Its construction also promises a refreshingly breathable sock that also adds support to those aching arches of yours.
We will wait to see if these match their promise, but the campaign suggests something we have been wanting in our travels.
Whether hiking foreign streets or taking in one meeting after another in a far-off city, having comfortable socks that you can count on remaining as clean as possible throughout your day is crucial.
And this particular campaign offers more, such as a travel kit that will tuck away all your personal accoutrement and a deodorizer, which will have you luggage smelling fresh and clean.
As of this writing, you can get a travel kit for $25. As for the socks, the least expensive package is two pairs for $29, which will be shipped by August.
