CHUP-TS1 - "Life Long" Socks with Cordura®

CHUP-TS1 - "Life Long" Socks with Cordura®

Chup will boast that their "Life Long" socks might possibly be the last socks you buy.  Knitted with Invista's highly durable material, Cordura®, which is 7 times as strong as normal yarn and gives amazing durability of 6 to 10 times that of ordinary cotton socks (scientifically tested and verified). These socks include Cordura yarn from top to bottom, not just in the heel, toe and sole (the minimum for socks to be able to use the Cordura name).

Subject to abrasion testing for wear, to pass they must survive 500 times - Chup's "Life Long" socks clear the abrasion test more than 30,000 times.  So they may not be indestructible, but they do wear extremely well (as Giles, their biggest fan, will testify).

USD36

Size Medium (UK 6-9.5)

5 Colours:  Black, Blue, Indigo, Navy and Olive

As a big fan of Darn Tough socks, I can't help but ask (and re-ignite a relatively controverse topic that has probably been discussed many times before) if anyone would recommend these over Darn Tough socks in terms of durability, comfort and overall quality.

@cityofdelusion I'm afraid Giles has never owned Darn Tough socks, so we can't compare.  All I know that he's really hard on socks and wears them out very quickly, these Chup socks with Cordura are the only ones that last on him, and they do last extremely well.

Thanks Paula, I might give them a try in the future if my socks ever fail me :)

These are nice. Definitely not as coarse or heavy as I expected... On the other hand you could become quite the muscular man if you tried stretching them half an hour a day...

They're quite refined as well...

Thanks again for bringing these over, G-Shock and Awesome.
