 THORLO, INC. ROLLS OUT NEW SPORT-SPECIFIC SOCK FOR IN-LINE SKATERS
 STATESVILLE, N.C., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Thorlo(R), Inc. which brought sport-specific socks to athletic footwear, will introduce in June its In-Line Skate sock.
 The creation of the In-Line Skate sock, designed specifically for enthusiasts of this popular new sport, underscores Thorlo's commitment to providing quality footwear for nearly every sport.
 The In-Line Skate sock features high-density padding at the ball and heel, for maximum protection against concussion and abrasion at the impact zones. An extra-high-density pad at the Achilles tendon protects the Achilles area from friction against loose fitting boots. Medium- density padding at the instep runs up the front panel of the sock to reduce boot pressure at the shin, and a flat knit panel at the side reduces bulk to provide a better fit.
 The In-Line Skate sock is constructed of 85 percent Foot Health(TM) yarns for dryness and 15 percent nylon for a snug, comfortable fit. Thorlo's Foot Health yarns, made mostly with acrylic, are superior to cotton and wool in transporting moisture away from the skin, according to recent studies.
 Thorlo sport-specific socks are available for walking, running, tennis, skiing, hiking, mountain climbing, soccer, volleyball, in-line skating and many other sports and activities.
 Thorlo, Inc. lives up to its slogan -- "Better Feet. Better Life." -- by creating functionally designed, engineered and tested padded socks that offer extra comfort during physical activity, leading ultimately to a better quality of life for the millions of customers who wear them.
 For more information, contact Thorlo(R) Inc. at 800-438-0209 or 704-872-6522.
