Gavin Harmon, Jason Child, and Steven Glick have created an antimicrobial replacement for socks.

The product, called Bamboo Shoo, is made of a top layer of 100% bamboo fabric, which is three times more absorbent than cotton, and a bottom layer of 100% bamboo charcoal, which acts as a natural antimicrobial agent.

Because bamboo’s natural habitat is typically humid and therefore teeming with bacteria and other microbes, the bamboo plant has developed “a substance called bamboo-kun – an antimicrobial agent that gives the plant a natural resistance to pest and fungi infestation.” (Wikipedia)

With the right manufacturing techniques, these antimicrobial properties are retained even when bamboo is processed for human applications, like Bamboo Shoo Inserts.

“Finding the right eco friendly process for the bamboo that kept all of the defensive, shoe-preserving properties of KUN was our goal. The process we use allowed us to create a natural bamboo product that is very thin, flexible and super effective at finally stopping the real cause of shoe damage and foot odor,” says founder, Gavin Harmon.

“Bamboo Shoo was designed with one objective in mind: replace socks,” said Jason Child. “The most important thing for us was finding a fabric that was as natural as possible and as potent as possible, and also felt good on the bottom of your foot.”
