Falke SA recently launched their locally designed and manufactured autumn/winter 2020 sport collection with a focus on the digital age. They explore the space between real and virtual worlds with high-tech glamour features and colours that are so bright that they almost appear artificial – as if viewed on a virtual screen.
They also contributed to a futuristic look with fresh acidic tones used across their Stride, Silver Run, Ultra Light, Retro Crew and Advanced Bike Sock collections.
Other key hidden features include ergonomically engineered socks that provide optimal support, comfort and anti-microbial properties, as well as advanced Coollayr Cooling Technology that will provide additional comfort for cyclists.
“Athletes can look forward to more practical performance attributes, such as a boost in comfort and support,” says Falke. “This is achieved through specific geometric, ribbed and tubular patterns and textures in each design, such as the Stride Collection, providing support for your feet when you need it most.”
Temperature regulation is a core feature athletes can benefit from. “Mohair wool and merino linings allow hikers to keep warm on the cooler days outdoors, and keep cool during more high-intensity hikes or exercises. The mohair blend component is ideal for the advanced hiker as it is made up of mohair, merino wool and acrylic, twisted with drynamix,” says Falke. This creates a diamond fibre that is soft, comfortable and most importantly, durable.
The A/W20 collection also features natural earthy tones with pops of enticing bright colours.
