Online PR News – 17-January-2012 – – Standard Merchandising Co., a sock and hosiery manufacturer, is introducing its line of athletic compression socks and compression arm sleeves. Standard Merchandising started the trend of novelty athletic socks and is the leading American producer of novelty athletic socks through its Red Lion brand. The entire line of Red Lion knitted socks and most of its accessories are manufactured in the U.S.
Red Lion has been shaking up the athletic sock industry using not only bright colors, but fun patterns like tiger prints, camouflage, monkeys, flames…anything that can be imagined. Some of the Red Lion novelty athletic socks choices include tie dye, space dye, animal/animal prints, geometric shapes (dots, stars, checkerboards, diamonds, etc.), stripes, flowers, peace signs, and Argyles.
Now Red Lion is creating another fashion statement with their new line of compression socks. In addition to their traditional style black or white athletic compression socks, they offer novelty athletic compression socks in wild patterns and colors just like their athletic socks.
According to Standard Manufacturing Co. owner, Lee Tarnoff, “Red Lion has set the fashion tone for fun fashion and fitness. In addition to all the other styles and colors we already offer, future styles and colors of compression socks will include tie dye, and neon colors.”
Compression socks are popular in wide variety of sports training activities, especially for runners.
Red Lion’s high tech compression products are circular knit on state-of-the-art knitting machines using only top quality yarns. They provide the perfect level of compression to energize a body’s limbs before, during, and after all athletic activities.
The novelty athletic compression socks feature ergonomic/graduated compression, anatomically shaped left/right foot, power compression fabric, ankle support, and calf muscle support. The socks are made with turned welt top, padded heel, strategically padded sole areas, graduated compression, and padded toe.
Red Lion compression arm sleeves fit like a second skin and are popular with many sports participants. Football players wear them, basketball players wear one on their shooting arm and bicyclists wear them. And, just like the novelty athletic compression socks, these compression arm sleeves come in funky designs and fun colors.
Red Lion’s high tech compression arm sleeves provide additional arm support and help to keep arms warm during all athletic competitions and workouts. They can be used before, during, and after activities to improve muscle efficiency. The compression arm sleeves feature an ergonomic tapered fit, stabilized arm support, improved muscle efficiency, added warmth, seamless circular knit, power compression fabric, anti-fatigue, wrist and elbow support, and graduated compression which aids in recovery and helps prevent injury.
All of red lion athletic socks are “Made in the USA,” at Standard Merchandising Co.’s own knitting mill in Pennsylvania. No other outside contractors are used in the manufacturing of Red Lion athletic socks.
