Why Performance Socks for Golf?

Why Performance Socks for Golf?

Most golfers research golf shoe technology for hours and don’t think twice about spending $150 or more on a pair of golf shoes in the constant quest for a lower score. So, why do these same golfers buy a 6-pack of cheap, loose fitting, highly absorbent cotton socks?

Finding the right performance sock to work with your golf shoe, not against it, is time well spent. All it takes is an early tee time and thick dew to soak cotton socks and ruin the rest of your round. Chances are you will be taking home a blister, not a lower score.

Marathon runners have been wearing performance socks for years. Running shoes are high-tech pieces of equipment whose best attributes can be rendered useless by ill-fitting socks. Long distance runners are on their feet for 4-6 hours at a time, so they need a durable product with superior fit and moisture control.                                       

Golfers likewise need a contoured fit and moisture wicking materials to remain as dry and comfortable on the 18th green as they were on the first tee. They spend as much time on their feet as runners, often in changing weather conditions. The average round of golf takes about 4.5-5 hours, and if you walk the golf course, you can expect to log about 6-7 miles during the course of a round. So, golfers need the promise of high performance features just as much as any marathon runner.

Swiftwick will provide that critical performance link between you and your technical golf footwear. We develop our products by carefully selecting high performance fibers that inherently wick moisture and then sculpt them into breathable designs to keep your feet dry and comfortable for eighteen holes.

Our goal is a perfect fit every time so you are stable and poised over the ball. Our socks will support the contours of your foot, which means no voids, bunching or blisters. We focus on your feet so you can focus on your game! 

Swiftwick has been committed to providing the best socks you will ever wear, guaranteed. All Swiftwick socks are sustainably produced in the USA.
