Nothing is worse than coming home after a long day and kicking off your shoes, only to find that your feet absolutely stink. This can prove particularly embarrassing if you’re a guest at someone’s home or traveling through airport security. It’s hard to prevent that foot stench on your own, but now there’s a solution to get rid of the smell: specially designed, odorless socks.
MP Magic Socks—dubbed “The World’s Best Odorless Socks”—are comfortable socks infused with silver, copper and zinc to keep your feet cool and odor-free. The makers say the minerals in the antibacterial fabric are what works to keep odors away. They’re perfect for traveling at the airport, entering a house of worship, playing sports or even just getting cozy at a friend’s house (you know, the one who aways insists guests take off shoes before entering).
These handy socks were originally designed for the aerospace industry, but the makers recently raised over $30,000 on IndieGoGo to start producing the socks for the public.
Here’s a video that explains how the Magic Socks work:
The socks will sell for $19 to $25 for a pack of three, and they come in a variety of dark colors. According to the IndieGoGo page, they will be available starting in December.
