ATLANTA — Two apparel/textile industry veterans have launched a brand of socks for men and women that balance styling and performance and are made from nearly all natural materials.
Goodhew socks, which began shipping to stores on Oct. 8, was created by Jim Markley, a former vice-president of sales at SmartWool, and Thomas Lee, a former vice-president of wool company Crescent Woolen Mills. They use merino wool, alpaca, bamboo and stretch nylon, and some styles also include Coolmax. Hidden performance features include spandex for fit, as well as arch supports, Y-heel constructions and flat-toe seams.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
