Stealth Socks: Covertly Fresh, Impeccably Styled

Rough day at work.

Scramble for a looming deadline. Presentation to a surly manager. Gunfire from villainous henchmen. One of those days.

Your body sweats to keep you cool in tense situations. In fact, your feet have one of the highest concentrations of sweat glands on your body, and are confined in stifling boxes called shoes most of the day. This is not a recipe for feeling (or smelling) like success.

Inspired by the archetypal super-spy, we’ve created the perfect sock to keep you looking and feeling effortlessly cool, whether stress means spreadsheets or shootouts. Through the design process, we’ve tested every product on the market and made dozens of prototypes to reach the perfect blend of features and capabilities. Like an ejection-seat-equipped sports car, the Stealth Sock’s stylishly unassuming exterior conceals the incredible technology and features that make it so awesome.

The secret weapon behind the Stealth Sock is its unique one-two punch of fabric technologies. The first of its kind, bacteriostatic silver and activated carbon infused fibers work synergistically to keep you cool and odorless. Paired with its advanced construction methods and features, there’s no better sock on the market.

Like the agents it's designed for, the Stealth Sock can go anywhere and do anything. Sleek and svelte, it's thin enough to fit perfectly under a handcrafted leather dress shoe, yet its ample cushioning and performance features make it equally at home under boots on the trail or sneakers and jeans off-duty.

New to the Stealth Sock family are the Recon & Zero. Just in time for the campaign's end, these unlocked stretch goals provide the technological punch of the Stealth Sock in more casual or beach-appropriate cuts.

True to its name, the Stealth Sock features an unmatched ability to remain undetectably fresh, even after multiple wears and heavy use. How is that possible? Well:

Stealth Sock silver fabric works by keeping bacteria, the real odor culprits, in check at healthy skin levels; without it, they grow uncontrollably leading to that locker-room smell.

So go ahead, wear 'em again if the situation calls for it. Pack a little lighter for that trip. We won't tell - and nobody else can.

Like your favorite gym gear, Stealth Socks fight rising temps by transporting moisture away from your skin while improving air circulation and breathability.

To prove the Stealth Sock’s performance, we had samples tested at a 3rd party laboratory certified by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists.

In addition to keeping feet dry and breathable, the Stealth Sock features strategically placed cushioning and a seamless toe for maximum comfort and wearability.

Stylish clothes are worthless without proper fit, and state-of-the-art socks are useless if you spend half your time pulling at and adjusting them. By pairing our unique fiber blend with top of the line fit features, you can be confident that your Stealth Socks will always stay in place and never let you down.

The Stealth Sock's unique fiber blend give it a higher degree of stretch and adaptability than most other products. As a result, it fits comfortably on feet from US Men’s 5/Women’s 6 to Men’s 14/Women’s 15.

Some brands have caught criticism for allowing silver to leach out of their clothes and onto their wearers. Unlike cheaper, coated threads, the Stealth Sock utilizes a polymeric matrix design to encapsulate the silver in its fibers. This means the odor-fighting ability is proven to stay in the sock and off your skin, all while ensuring antimicrobial effectiveness even after 100+ washes.

When we were testing other socks on the market, nothing irritated us more than spending $30 on a pair with some cool technology, only for it to pill to shreds and disintegrate after only a few wears. We vowed never to make that mistake. Besides using a naturally more wear-resistant fabric, we added:

              

The Covert Travel Kit

Designed with versatility in mind, the Covert Travel Kit’s zippered pockets and elastic straps make it the perfect case for carrying and organizing your gear in any situation. Built out of heavy-duty nylon, toss it into your suitcase for your next trip or use the integrated webbing system to strap it into a bag or pack.

 Load outs might include:

  • Toiletries, shaving gear, and documents for travel
  • First aid items, tools, and a flashlight to keep in the car
  • Hard drive, cables, and a mouse for work on the go
  • Pocketknife, chargers, and pens for EDC
  • Survival tools and emergency supplies for camping

The Deodorizer

Built with the same charcoal carbon technology, the Deodorizer is a natural companion to our Stealth Socks. Coming in a two pack, the Deodorizer captures odor with a slim and convenient form factor, perfect for slipping into shoes, gym bags, suitcases, or anywhere else odors or humidity aren't welcome.

Additional deodorizers, travel kits, and Stealth Socks available as add-ons via backer survey at the end of the campaign.

Meet the founders: Gabby, Ben, and Kevin

Maison Impeccable was founded in early 2015 by a few high school friends from Michigan reuniting from coast to coast through a shared passion for style and a love of action flicks. Our team spans a diverse range of industries and experiences: business, medicine, retail, tech, and even finance - all of which help to give us unique insights and perspectives into the clothes we wear and how we can improve them.

Despite differing backgrounds, we all independently ended up at the same conclusion: today’s clothes simply aren’t as good as they should be, always forcing us to sacrifice on one aspect or another. We’re not the first to come up with this idea either - a handful of other brands are paving the way and doing great work. That said, when we tried what was on the market, something always wasn’t quite right. Sure, A was great, but B was all wrong. Why didn’t they do C and had they even considered D? Rather than wait for companies to magically figure out and produce what we wanted, we decided strike out on our own. We were already reading and learning about this stuff obsessively in our free time, why not make something of it?

The Support Team

As much work as we've put in over the past year and change, we wouldn't be where we are today without all the people who've helped us along the way. Among others, we'd like to thank:

Maison Impeccable is a startup dedicated to evolving garments and how we interact with them. By analyzing clothing equally through the lenses of utility and aesthetics, we seek to engineer pieces that offer uncompromising performance across all use cases. Building upon the belief that each individual is the hero of their own life, our goal is to keep wearers outfitted for the day’s missions, wherever they may lead.

As the common Kickstarter story goes, the traditional model of buy-first-sell-later manufacturing is too expensive for new brands just getting started.

To make Stealth Socks, we need to make a minimum order from our factory of several thousand pairs - after all, it doesn’t make sense for them to set up and retool machines to make a few dozen socks. Crowdfunding on Kickstarter lets us secure enough initial orders to make a large production run so we can bring costs and prices down to reasonable levels. Without you, we’d have to either make a small order with a crazy-high cost, or keep thousands of pairs sitting around in a warehouse as we find buyers one-by-one.

Funding raised through the campaign will go towards production, manufacturing, and shipping the Stealth Sock as well as fuel the development of awesome new product lines in the future!

All orders will be shipped from our fulfillment warehouse in Georgia. We evaluated dozens of companies for reputation, reliability, and experience before choosing this critical partner. We're proud to offer free shipping within the United States for all Kickstarter backers.

For operatives outside of the US, shipping will add a small fee to cover added costs. Taxes, VAT and/or duties aren’t included in the prices and may be added in accordance with your local regulations.

Because policies around customs and duties can vary by country, please check yours in advance to avoid any complications down the line!

Risks and challenges

“What’s life without a little risk?”

Words to live by, maybe not what you look for in your Kickstarter projects. When the Stealth Sock is successfully funded, we will do everything in our power to ensure we meet our timeline. We’ve spent thousands of hours working to develop and sync manufacturing, packaging, and logistics to be ready to hit the ground running as soon as our timer hits zero. With dozens of samples crafted and delivered to friends, media, and testers around the world, all elements of our supply chain have been tested and tuned. We will deliver.

The most likely risks have to do with timing: machine time for production, logistics time across the ocean, and fulfillment time to get into your hands. We’re keeping our partners in those fields ready and will continue to do so throughout the campaign so we should be ready to go.

Beyond that, we don’t see any direct risks or challenges, but the path to get here frequently reminded us that life always has a few surprises in store. Our diverse backgrounds and experiences will help us manage whatever might pop up, and counter to our otherwise clandestine ways, we promise to run this campaign with clear communication and full transparency.
