All Balega running socks are manufactured with the best U.S.-made performance yarn in state-of-the-art facilities in Cape Town, South Africa and Hickory, North Carolina. Every pair of Balega socks is hand-inspected by our dedicated quality inspection teams and pre-washed before packing. All Balega packaging is printed onpartially recycled board. Our manufacturing facilities use a water recycling purification system that recovers up to 50% of wastewater. Balega Blister Resist No Show Socks for Men and Women blend the best of nature and technology, by combing natural and synthetic fibers for ultimate anti-blister performance. Soft, durable, natural mohair is known for being anti-friction, strong, shrink-resistant, and antimicrobial—an excellent fiber for socks—while proprietary Drynamix, along with specially constructed mesh ventilation panels, wicks moisture away from the skin to keep feet dry. Together they make an exceptional, race-tested sock that protects even the most sensitive skin against sheer friction blisters. The seamless toe box minimizes chafing across the top of the foot, and a high heel tab and extra deep heel pocket ensure that socks won’t slip down into shoes during walks, runs, and hikes. The Balega Blister Resist No Show Socks features high-volume cushioning for comfort during extended activity.
