Balega Launches Limited Edition Crew-Length Socks

Balega International, a leading performance sock brand in the run and outdoor specialty market, introduces a fun, new limited-edition crew-length sock—The Crazy Crews. Adding flare to your sock drawer, the Crazy Crews showcase subtle geometric designs and vibrant colors, weaved in with Balega’s promise of comfort and durability.


“Rooted in performance, but versatile enough to be worn at any time of day, the Crazy Crews show off a fun new look for Balega,” stated Tanya Pictor, VP of Marketing Specialty at Implus. “The Crazy Crews’ streamlined design, innovative style and bold color palette feeds attention to the style-minded consumer, while still promoting our promise of comfort and performance in all Balega products.” 

Crazy Crews feature Balega’s trademark hand-linked toe box for seamless comfort and U.S. made Drynamix moisture management fibers to keep you cool and dry. The socks’ non-constricting compression bands and extra deep heel pocket provide a secure fit while eliminating pressure points and hot spots for the risk of sheer friction blisters.


In addition, Crazy Crews offer unique benefits and technology including:

  • Enhanced elastic grip construction in both arch and ankle to provide ultimate support
  • Sculptured mesh panels to aid ventilation
  • Medium volume construction and cushioning for impact resistance

Crazy Crews will be available at local run specialty retail stores December 1, 2016 and also will be sold online at Balega.com. Crazy Crews will retail for a suggested $15.
