About us

 

Wrightsock Origin. 

No One Performs their Best with Blisters.

Wrightenberry Hosiery Mills is a 3rd generation family owned and operated hosiery manufacturer in Burlington, NC, USA. The company was founded in 1948 in North Carolina, where all operations and productions proudly still remain. Wrightsock take pride in being a product made in America by American workers.

How did we develop our Anti-Blister System™? It all started back in 1988 with a dad trying to help his son improve his sports performance. The son was suffering from blisters created by the back and forth motion required for running, quick maneuvers and repetitive motions. The more his son practiced, the more blisters he got from the friction and chafing of his socks. That dad was Jerry Wrightenberry, a second-generation hosiery manufacturer. When he saw that the blisters were hindering his son Joey’s performance, he realized his son didn’t have the right equipment. So, Jerry developed a sock that would prevent the moisture and friction of loose fitting socks from creating blisters.

That act of love turned into an innovation. Joey and his sister now run the third-generation company. And runners and athletes the world over wear the Wrightsock™ name, the original no-blister sock. Today, our game-changing concept and proprietary manufacturing ensure we make the best possible Double Layer ®  sock. Since 1988, we have consistently made advancements in the manufacturing process to keep our sock technologically advanced.

All Wrightsock™ products are made in the USA at our plant in Burlington, NC established in 1948.

Anti-Blister System

 

It’s What’s Inside that Helps You Go the Distance.

Painful blisters, even the threat of blisters, can hinder our performance or stop us in our tracks. Competition and repetition create extreme stress on our feet. These movements cause friction, moisture and heat that can create blisters.

The Wrightsock™ Double Layer® absorbs friction that is normally transferred to the skin. Our inner and outer sock layers interact with one another to protect the skin on your feet from abrasion. Our Dri-Wright® Liner layer wicks moisture off the skin better than other fabrics, keeping your feet dry. This wicking means your feet stay more comfortable and cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
