Acor introduces the silver-lined seamless sock to its popular Sole Defense Line


December, 2005  Cleveland, Oh—Two years after launching its highly successful Sole Defense line of footwear, Acor introduces a new line of socks lined with X-Static – a silver fiber known worldwide for its anti-bacterial, anti-odor, and blister reduction.


Sole Defense silver socks are made with pure silver fibers which keep your feet cool in the summer and warm in the winter. “When placed in conjunction with our silver-lined insoles and shoes, these socks complete a triad of protection against most harmful bacteria and fungi which grow within the confines of the shoe” says Jeff Alaimo, President of Acor. Alaimo continued by saying, “There are many footwear options in the marketplace that are reactive to a person’s needs, but we have created a solution that provides a healthier environment for the wearer and is proactive in its protection of their feet.”


The silver fibers found within Sole Defense footwear have been used in healing medicine since at least the 5th century B.C. All major empires found uses for this element and wrote of its qualities.  It was not until the 20th century that the element was capable of being permanently bonded to textile fibers for use in clothing and footwear.  The benefits to the user are enormous, including:

  • Elimination of odor by neutralizing ammonia and denatured proteins
  • Destroying bacteria and fungi
  • Heat convection and evaporation to regulate temperature


The socks are currently available in men’s and women’s sizes and come in Black and Gray. Visit our web site at for online purchases and information regarding X-Static. If you are interested in becoming a distributor of Acor products, contact us at: 1-800-237-2267.
