- What is copper-infused material? It’s a commonly-used material, such as cotton or wool, that has tiny copper threads inserted into the weave.
- Can copper-infused socks cure my stinky feet? Kind of. The Socks No.1513 uses copper-infused material to reduce the odor coming from inside your shoes. They are also very comfortable.
Being locked away in leather for upwards of 10 hours a day does nothing for the condition of your feet. A build-up of moisture allows bacteria to flourish, causing the stinky feet odor we all hate. These conditions are also ideal for fungal spores, leading to infections such as athlete’s foot.
While good pedal hygiene is important, there is another way to reduce odor and kill bacteria. The Socks No.1513 is a new brand that uses copper-infused material, which has natural antibacterial qualities.
Why wear copper-infused socks?
Here’s a story that might answer the question.
Back in 2010, a group of 33 Chilean miners were trapped underground for two months after a section of the gold-mine they were working in collapsed.
During their ordeal, some of the men suffered with infected feet due to the intense heat and humidity inside the mine. To combat the problem, rescuers at the surface sent down copper-infused socks. After two weeks, 90% of the infections had resolved.
The copper-infused material used by the Socks No.1513 offers exactly the same level of protection against bacteria, fungi and odor. They also have a deodorizing effect, while keeping your feet warm in winter.
The copper thread even provides anti-static properties and electromagnetic shielding.
Stylish and sophisticated
You might expect socks with these medicinal properties to look a bit sterile. But the Socks No.1513 range is filled with great design.
They are made primarily from organic cotton, with fine copper threaded throughout the weave. The fabric also contains some polyester for durability, and a little stretchy Spandex.
At launch, there are 11 different styles and colors to choose from. Although none of these socks are particularly bold, they still have character.

Just as importantly, the Socks No.1513 range is really nice to wear. The fabric is smooth and soft, yet durable enough for daily use. Kickstarter backers even get a one-year warranty that guarantees comfort.
“’The Socks no.1513′ is made from organic cotton, produced by minimizing the chemical process, and copper, the only metal that can remove up to 99.9% of the bacteria in the fibers.” — The Socks No.1513 on Kickstarter
The ultimate socks?
Copper has been proven to provide antimicrobial properties, which is great for reducing odor. If you suffer from stinky feet, these socks might be your saving grace.
The Socks No.1513 only covers US sizes 7.5 to 11 at the moment. However, more sizes will be added should the Kickstarter campaign reach $30,000 in pledges.
