EYES ON: Glovax MP Magic Socks
Everyone loves a good pair of socks. Your feet will not only thank you, it can literally put a pep in your step and make a difference in your effectiveness.
Regular socks, be they woolen, cotton or more exotic materials like bamboo, are a big step up from nylon or acrylic blend, especially when it comes to smell. However, science has advanced and offers some other alternatives.
After a sweaty workout, long travel, or in the morning, you’ll definitely appreciate the difference a pair of clean dry socks makes, even more so if they’re comfortable and not stinky. Speaking of comfortable, non-stinky socks, the clever minds behind Glovax gloves would like to introduce their MP Magic socks, which they claim are the “world’s best odorless socks“.
These socks are made from some very unique materials. The fabric is infused with not one, not two, but three antimicrobial metals: silver, copper, and zinc, because multiple metals can kill multiple types of odor and disease-causing microbes. Silver is known as a great antibacterial meta used in everything from bandages to homeopathic potions, copper can also kill bacteria and is a key component of many enzymes, and zinc can reduce bacterial loads and thus odor too!
This three-metal-infused technique takes existing techniques to the next level by layering them for increased coverage and effects.
I wear boots all day, every day, which is pretty rough for any sock. I hike, train and work in my boots. During winter, I like to leave my socks on because I’m very tall and my feet stick out of the covers. Even with daily sock changes and foot washing, that takes a toll. I received a pair of these socks and decided to try out the same pair for a week to see how they’d hold up. I chose the ankle socks because I was purely interested in the foot effects, and they were great!
With these functional fabrics, you can take off your shoes without any hesitation over worrying about their smell. After a week’s worth of almost constant wear, including a four-hour hike and a few hours of Viking training, my feet felt great and smelled pretty good too. The socks are breathable and even when my feet got hot and sweaty, a quick pullout and wave-around both cooled and dried them. I think that comes down to the metal infusion of the fabric, but the design and cut of the sock certainly come into it. More than just a modern miracle textile, Glovax specially designed the socks at the toe and heel area to perfectly match the human foot shape, which makes that part super breathable and durable!
With their metal-infused fabric, these socks are designed to transfer heat more efficiently and be more durable! Odorless, comfortable, antibacterials, super durable and breathable, I gave them a pretty solid thrashing and they bounced back well. They work well as advertised, and are comfortable and resilient day after day.
OF NOTE: The Glovax team just finished a campaign about a set of rugged cool work gloves which are also well worth checking out.

About the Author: Josh Orth is a second generation expat currently dwelling in the arguably civilized outskirts of Melbourne, Australia. He’s lived in deserts, jungles and urban sprawls around the world and traveled/adventured into assorted inhospitable places all over the globe, from near-dystopian parts to cities to Gabon, West Africa. Thus he has a keen sense of the speed with which the trappings of ‘civilized Western life’ can disappear. This has led him to begin writing about his interests and observations when it comes to the gear, skills and other necessities of self-reliance of being equipped for whatever a capricious, occasionally indurate life might throw at him. This isn’t by any means to say our eccentric friend truly experiences genuine vorfreude about dystopian life, but if he had to he might not complain. Read more by Josh at Apocalypse Equipped.
