Men's Underwear + Socks
Underwear won't change your life...Until it does. We created a fabric that fuses organic cotton and bamboo for a life changing experience.
Men’s Underwear: The Ultimate Guide
Socks are something you wear every day but rarely put much thought into. Plenty of us have single socks floating in our sock drawers.
It’s easy to go with the traditional, convenient cotton sock, but is the standard option the best? What if you want to purchase socks with a ribbed band, arch compression, or a tall leg tube? What about nylon, lycra, or a more sustainable option?
Even the basics like socks can now achieve elevated comfort, function, and sustainability. At Tasc Performance, we don’t believe in settling for less—and for the best styles, you need the best materials. Today, we’re talking about bamboo socks.
Material can make or break any pair of socks, no matter how well constructed they are. Other factors include fit and support design, but none are as fundamental as the fabric.
Whether you want to improve your jump shots or you’re just looking for something comfortable to cover your bare skin, it’s essential to learn about the fabrics available and make a well-educated choice.
Traditional Fabrics for Socks
Let’s break down the pros and cons of traditional options.
Cotton is popular in socks for its soft feel and convenience. However, its downsides have become more apparent. Cotton isn’t the most practical material for socks, at least not on its own. It’s slow to dry, prone to shrinkage, and easily traps odors. Further, cotton is environmentally unsustainable.
Synthetic fabrics are an alternative preferred by some due to their ability to dry quickly. However, these fabrics still trap odors and are even worse in sustainability due to the chemical treatments required.
At Tasc Performance, we blend bamboo with organic cotton for an eco-friendly, ultra-soft, high-performance material.
Organic cotton is a straightforward improvement over cheap, traditional cotton. Bamboo, another green material, boasts a huge list of all-natural qualities ideal for any style, especially summery socks. These include:
The ability to wick moisture
The most important job for any pair of socks is to keep your feet dry and warm. This is where moisture-wicking is essential. Breathability provides additional power, so your feet never overheat.
These qualities help your body thermoregulate unhindered. Along with odor resistance to promote longevity and freshness, a pair of bamboo socks is highly practical, comfortable, and versatile – perfect for leisure, day-to-day, or exercise.
The Best Bamboo Socks
Whether you’re a believer or still have doubts, the best way to know is to try. Our Bambare Crew Socks are the essential style for year-round wear, perfect with pants or shorts, low tops or high tops, and everything in-between.
Bambare Tabbed Socks are ideal for low-top shoes and shorts. While the top of the foot often gets the most attention, this mindfully designed heel tab prevents slip, the most frustrating problem for most ankle socks.
In either case, you’ll enjoy mapped cushioning for support through the metatarsal region and honeycomb ventilation to further improve breathability.
There are plenty of sock factors to consider—cuff height, ribs, and moisture transpiration being just a few. But fabric choice reigns supreme.
Great as a comfy summer sock or a sweat-wicking winter accessory, bamboo socks combine durability, gentle compression, and comfort to make a great addition to any wearer's sock drawer.
Whether you choose a waffle-knit, a solid knit, or any number of different knits for your bamboo sock, you'll wish you had sock insurance if you ever lose a pair.
