Silver naturally has very good anti-microbial properties. That's great for folk with smelly feet.
So the idea behind Ag47 was really simple: Ag47 are comfortable; they stay fresh day after day; and they eliminate odour.
That makes Ag47 particularly great for the hiker biker and outdoor active use. So whilst silver isn't the cheapest thread in the box, adding it does make Ag47 one of the very best.
We’re not sure what Christopher Columbus and Marco Polo wore on their feet, but we’re fairly sure we wouldn’t have wanted to smell them after months of voyage. That unpleasant sensation of grimy feet has long-since plagued the traveller, no matter how often they dip their feet into refreshing mountain streams. Well, until the design of the Ag47 sock, that is.
With X-Static silver fibres, the Ag47 uses the anti-microbial properties of silver to form the optimal sock for hiker biker and multi-day outings, whether you’re walking, riding, running, or spearheading world exploration.

I wore them continuously for 5 days hiking in the Alps in trail shoes and found there was no rubbing (the toe seam is completely flat), they wicked well, had the right amount of cushioning for off road walking, and really didn’t smell at all despite not washing them.
