Here are one of the best copper-infused, antibacterial socks.
They are woven with fibers that are infused with copper, which is clinically proven to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria, fungus, and odors.
The copper ions are embedded into the yarn.
The amazing thing about these antibacterial socks is that their efficacy will not fade or diminish over time or repeated machine washing.
The socks also have:
- moisture wicking properties
- added heel and toe cushions
- elastic arch support
These antimicrobial socks are made with cotton, polyester, copper infused polyester and spandex.
You get three pairs of antibacterial socks and they are available in black and white colors. Unisex sizes M, L or XL.

Benefits of Copper
Many people are surprised to know that copper could quite possibly save your life.
In February of 2008, the Environmental Protection Agency approved the registration of copper as an
antimicrobial material. This groundbreaking event marks the first time the agency has allowed public health claims to be made about a solid metal.
Scientists demonstrated in the laboratory that copper, brass and bronze begins eliminating germs upon contact and actually eradicate 99.9% of harmful bacteria within 2 hours. And continue to kill more than 99% of bacteria even after repeated contamination.
In recent years major news media have featured stories about how copper fixtures in hospitals may prevent deadly infections.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that hospital infections in the U.S. result in nearly 100,000 deaths each year. That’s more deaths than from AIDS, breast cancer and car crashes combined. Additionally, it’s estimated that infections acquired in hospitals cost a staggering 20 to 30 billion dollars annually.
Scientists proved that the microbes that cause infections in hospitals will die off within minutes of being in contact with copper, whereas they may survive for up to weeks or even months on stainless steel.
In an experiment, researchers inoculated surfaces and compared stainless steel against copper. They took the notorious MRSA bug and putted ten million of the cells on stainless steel and ten million of the cells on copper.
They showed that bacteria lived very happily on the stainless steel, but they died rapidly on the copper. Bacteria started dying in two or three minutes and by 10 minutes they all died.
How are these bugs being killed off? Copper works by multiple means. But in general, it shuts down the cell’s biochemistry and physiology.
It’s really amazing how this little mineral has so many antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effects!
In August 2010, 33 Chilean miners were trapped 2,362 ft. below ground for 70 days. Among other emergency provisions, they were given copper-infused socks in order to eliminate bacteria and fungi. The results were very successful.
Copper socks are one of the most best ways to fight bacterial and fungal growth in your feet without side effects. Foot creams and powders can be very messy. With copper socks you’ll experience no such problems.
You’ll have warm and dry feet that don’t come out of their socks smelling terribly.
