What is terry cushioning?

All our socks are equipped with soft terry cushioning, similar to what you would feel with a super plush luxury towel. Our terry is strategically positioned in the heel and toe. Heel cushioning provides shock relief. Toe cushioning help wick sweat and absorb moisture since the toe area is where most of the sweat glands are on your feet. Our zoned terry means happy, dry feet all day long.

What is combed cotton?
