30 Modern Sock Innovations

From Posture-Correcting Legwear to Stylish Compression Socks

— May 13, 2015 — Fashion
These modern sock innovations range from fashion-focused legwear accessories to hosiery products that aim to cure or improve health problems. From style-focused compression socks to posture-correcting foot wraps, the modern sock is all about customization and even features tech-enhanced capabilities.

Standouts from this list include baby monitor socks that are designed to track the temperature, movement and location of infants along with massaging wake-up socks that cure sore feet while energizing those who are wearing them.

Other modern sock innovations include countless sneaker products that feature a sock-infused design. These include hybrid soccer cleats -- fitted with a fabric, sock element -- along with streamlined running shoes that are designed with both comfort and maximum performance in mind.
