C3fit Paper Fiber Arch Support Short Socks

Goldwin America has announce its release of C3fit Arch-Support Socks made from paper fibre (WA CLOTH HYBRID) in the US beginning March 2016.

According to the company, the new C3fit Paper Fiber Socks solve foot problems by ‘exceptional providing breathability and comfort for all users.’

The company adds that…From the ancient times in Japan, where the weather was often humid, paper was used in many household products to remove moisture and bacteria. We’ve utilized this material and ancient practice to develop technical running socks with high breathability. Paper yarn of the paper fiber socks reduce stickiness from sweat and wick away moisture to keep the foot comfortable.

Paper fibre is made by twisting and weaving shreds of paper, which creates a unique texture that should not stick to the skin. According to Goldwin America, this significantly reduces the likelihood of getting blisters caused by the sock material rubbing the skin. The paper fibre material is tested to ‘provide 5 times more tolerance against rubbing compared to regular running socks.’

Like other C3fit socks, these socks also have a cross taping structure to support the arches of the foot. Supporting the arches by its taping design aims to reduce breakdown of the arch, which can lead to injuries.
