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.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
