Model TKO

Description

This pair of Lasting Sport TKO socks, from the 2000s, are designed for wearing when hunting or fishing. They are made predominantly from Outlast (R), an intelligent patented acrylic fibre which helps to regulate the temperature. Integrated micro capsules, called Thermocules (R), take heat away when the foot is hot, store it, and then release it back to the foot when required.
