Born in 1992, DeFeet has done it differently since day one. When Sean Cooper was just 4 years old, he emigrated to the United States from England with his father, who distributed knitting machines for a living. Decades later, after growing up around knitting machines, Sean decided to make them his career and embarked on a new way to knit socks.
The first DeFeet product was totally customizable, an open mesh weave airflow sock. Now, all DeFeet socks are simple, elegant, and built to last. In fact, DeFeet was the first company to begin using the CoolMax EcoMade™ fiber that is made using recycled plastic water bottles! Today, every non-wool DeFeet sock (other than the Thermeator) is made with Coolmax Ecomade, which makes DeFeet one of the most environmentally friendly product lines.
Fun Fact: It takes about three recycled water bottles to create a pair of socks.
