The Replacement for Boat Shoe Socks
Last summer, we got tired of smelly and uncomfortable feet when going sockless, so we set out to solve this problem once and for all. We wanted to create an alternative to boat shoe socks that all too often slip off or wear away with time. We also wanted an alternative to these seemingly "invisible socks" that never seem to be, well - invisible. We had the concept for Gekks liners in mind, we just need to find an ideal production situation for our unique product.
Our Commitment to Local Production
During the initial stages of early production, we had Gekks samples made in China, Korea, and Turkey. We're proud that we ultimately settled on a mill right here in the good ole USA! With many of the hosiery jobs in the USA going overseas, we are proud to be making our liners at home. Our gel application facility is also here in the USA. It took us a little while, but finally perfected the ultimate alternative to uncomfortable footie socks, boat shoe socks, and invisible socks. After months of prototyping and testing, we are excited to introduce the world to Gekks – THE Sockless Solution!
