Knit-Rite at the KC Sabates Eye Center Trolley Run!

The smiling faces of Knit-Rite donned their Core-Sport and went for a 4-mile run early Sunday morning during the Sabates Eye Center Trolley Run, the largest annual event for the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired (CCVI).

Despite ominous weather conditions, the event’s turnout was a hit with approximately 9,000 attendees who made it out to show their support!

NEW! SmartKnit Neuropathic Boot Interface

The SmartKnit Boot Interface offers protection specifically designed for the walking boot.  SmartKnit Boot Socks are completely seam-free.  Made the same way a caterpillar spins its cocoon, the SmartKnit Boot Interface has no seam to irritate the toes.  Not only are they seamless, but they are also form fitting.  Made with Core-Spun yarns, the SmatKnit Boot Sock hugs the foot and reduces the risk of pressure causing wrinkles.  For those individuals with neuropathy, these features help to keep their feet healthy.   The SmartKnit Boot Interface is also made with X-Static Silver fibers.  These fibers inhibit bacteria and fungus growth and results in a more hygienic sock environment that helps prevent dermatitis and the risk of skin infection.  The X-Static fibers are also moisture wicking which keep the feet dry.  Moisture wicking socks helps to keep feet cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
