All Balega socks are manufactured in Cape Town, South Africa using the best performance yarns manufactured in the United States. Their distribution center is located in Hickory, NC. All of their socks have a hand linked toe closure which helps eliminate abrasions and blisters. Every pair is hand inspected and the company states that their greatest asset is the people who work for them.
I love this saying on their website:
"My heart is at home in Africa
Where the sound of drums beat in my chest
And the songs of time ring in my ears
Where the rainbow mist glows in my eyes
And the smiles of friends make me welcome"
"I know a Place in Africa" - Wayne Visser (Reprinted with permission)
I love my Balega socks and have several pairs. I'm looking forward to getting more in 2016 and I love the new ones that are being made and will be available later in the year!
Do you own Balega socks? Do you love them as much as I love them for running and other activities? Let me know; leave me a comment! I look forward to sharing news about Balega and their initiatives and products throughout 2016!
Till next time and remember, my journey continues...If you can dream it, you can do it as Walt Disney said!
