  • Overview
  • Generally described, the present application relates to a sock. More specifically, the present application relates to a sock having a revolutionary design. In one illustrative embodiment, a stretchable foot sock made of Lycra® is provided. The foot sock can include an open leg end having soft ribbing for receiving a foot, toes, and at least a portion of a leg of a wearer. The foot sock can include a leg section for receiving at least a portion of the leg of the wearer. The foot sock can also include a foot section for receiving a foot of the wearer. Typically, the leg and foot sections include a top and bottom portion wherein the top portion includes a mesh structure and the bottom portion includes extra padding. Each of the sections can be seamlessly integrated.
  • Advantageously, the combination of the features and functions provided within the foot sock can overcome the aforementioned challenges. The seamless technology presented herein virtually eliminates irritation that is common among other socks. The soft ribbing eliminates itchiness around the portion of the leg of the wearer. In addition thereto, the mesh structure prevents the accumulation of moisture within the sock and the padding provided on the bottom portion provides a layer of cushion that can help reduce fatigue. Other beneficial features will become apparent in the description provided below.
  • As will be shown below, the sock can come in a variety of forms. One skilled in the relevant art will appreciate that there are numerous ways in which the illustrative sock can be altered or manipulated to produce the benefits of the sock described herein. Many additional features and elements of the present application will become apparent to one of ordinary skill in the art in the following description.
  • Sock
  • FIG. 1 depicts an exemplary sock 100 having the revolutionary features described herein in accordance with one aspect of the present application. The sock 100 can include, but is not limited to, an open leg end 102, leg section 104, foot section 106, and toe section 108. Those skilled in the relevant art will appreciate that the sock 100 can include other portions such as the heel portion 110.
  • Before describing the specific features and functions of the exemplary sock 100, illustrative materials for the sock 100 will now be described. Typically, the sock 100 can be made of the same materials throughout. In other embodiments, the sock 100 can include different materials for each section. For example, the leg section 104 can be made up of a different material from the foot section 106. The advantages of using different materials for the different sections of the sock 100 will become apparent from the discussion provided below.
  • In one embodiment, the sock 100 can be made of spandex. Spandex is typically composed of a manufactured fiber. The fiber can be formed from a substance that includes a long chain synthetic polymer composed of at least 85% of segmented polyurethane. Soft and rubbery segments of polyester or polyether polyols can allow the fiber to stretch up to 600% and then recover to its original shape. Hard segments, usually urethanes or urethane-ureas, can provide rigidity and so impart tensile strength and limit plastic flow. The flexibility, abrasion resistance, strength, and resistance to deterioration by body oils and perspiration are generally better than rubber.
  • The sock 100, in one embodiment, can also be made up of Lycra®. Lycra® is commonly known to include a spandex filament yarn. The soft segments of the segmented polyurethane can be formed from polytetramethelyne ether glycol. Socks 100 can be made of a variety of other materials as well. Some of these materials can be cotton, wool, nylon, acrylic, polyester, olefins, or polypropylene. To increase the level of softness of the sock 100 other materials that might be used during the process can be silk, linen, cashmere, or mohair.
  • While numerous types of materials have been described, those skilled in the relevant art will appreciate that the sock 100 can be made of different combinations of the materials described above. For example, the sock 100 can be made of ninety-percent (90%) cotton and ten percent (10%) Lycra®. This combination can not only provide a level of comfort, but also be elastic and flexible to those demands required of the sock 100. Preferably, however, the sock 100 can be made up of ninety-three percent (93%) cotton. Known to those skilled in the relevant art, different combinations of materials can be produced to fit the needs of a user.
  • As shown in FIG. 1, the sock 100 can include an open leg end 102. The open leg end 102 can be used to receive the foot, toes, and at least a portion of a leg of a wearer when the sock 100 is put on. Generally, the open leg end 102 can come in a one-size that fits all size. The open leg end 102 can include soft ribbing 112. The soft ribbing 112 generally eliminates itchiness around the ankle and calf of a user. In addition thereto, the soft ribbing 112 can improve the circulation of blood to the user's foot thereby, providing useful features to those with diabetes and other health problems.
  • In one embodiment, the open leg end 102 can include double ribbing 112. The double ribbing 112 can provide additional elasticity for the user's foot. In some instances, the double ribbing 112 can provide a more durable, longer lasting sock 100.
  • Connected to the open leg end 102, and as shown in FIG. 1, is a leg section 104. The leg section 104 can hold an ankle and a portion of the leg of a user. The leg section 104 can be adjusted dependent on the type of sock 100 the user wishes to have, which will be described in relation to FIGS. 3 and 4. Typically, the leg section 104 can be made of the same material as the open leg end 102, as indicated by the similar shading used for both.
  • Continuing, the leg section 104 can be coupled to the foot section 106. Generally, the foot portion 106 houses the foot of a user. The foot portion 106 can be provided in a tubular shape. As shown, the foot section 106 can include two portions, i.e., a top portion 114 and a bottom portion 116. In one embodiment, the top portion 114 can include a mesh type material. The mesh can be used to prevent the accumulation of moisture by allowing for greater air circulation. The mesh itself is typically defined by a material having webbing that allows the skin to breath.
  • With reference now to the bottom portion 116 of the foot section 106, extra padding can be provided. Typically, the extra padding can reduce the amount of strain caused by high impact. Another advantage of the extra padding is the durability and sustainability of the sock 100. The padding can reduce fatigue as well. The extra padding can be made of the same materials discussed above. In one embodiment, several layers of padding can be provided on the bottom portion 116.
  • Coupled to the foot section 106 is a toe section 108. Similar to the bottom portion 116 of the foot section 106, extra padding can be provided on the toe section. In one embodiment, the toe section 108 extends into the top portion 114 of the foot section 106 as shown in FIG. 1. This can be used to reduce the impact on the user's toes.
  • The open leg end 102, leg section 104, foot section 106, and toe section 108 can be seamlessly integrated into the sock 100. The seamless integration eliminates irritation that is common among most other socks. The seam 118, as shown in FIG. 1, integrates the top portion 114, bottom portion 116, and toe section 108, where the foot is most sensitive. Seamless integration of the various sections of the sock 100 can provide benefits to those with sensitive skin.
  • To further show the seamless integration, FIG. 2 represents the interior of the exemplary sock 100. When flipped inside-out, the seam 118 is virtually removed from the sock 100. This can provide added comfort to the user. In addition to the seam 118, typically each and every seam within the sock 100 is also seamlessly integrated. For example, the seam 202 between the open leg end 102 and the leg section 104 can be seamlessly integrated to remove irritation on the leg of the user. Seam 204, seam 206, and seam 208 can also be seamlessly provided within the sock 100 to remove irritants to that portion of the user.
  • FIG. 3 illustrates a second embodiment of the exemplary sock 100 in accordance with one aspect of the present application. Before, the sock 100 was presented to have a crew cut. As shown, the sock 100 can also have a quarter cut. FIG. 4 shows a third embodiment of the exemplary sock 100 in accordance with one aspect of the present application whereby the sock 100 has a low cut.
