At the age of four, Shane Cooper arrived in the United States from England. His father distributed knitting machines. Even though Shane grew up around knitting machines, he was always more interested in bicycles and music. It wasn't until the early 1990's that Shane decided to turn his attention entirely toward knitting and embarked on a completely new way to knit socks. This is how the company DeFeet International was born in 1992.
DeFeet – Cycling socks for the sports we love
It didn’t take long until the world’s top endurance athletes took notice of the high-quality socks – and they were impressed! The characteristics of those early designs are evident throughout the DeFeet line today. Elegant, simple, useful and built to last. Knowing that the DeFeet employees in North Carolina know the products and manufacture them best, the brand decided to continue manufacturing the socks in the USA and to not outsource the production overseas. This helps achieve highest quality standards. The company’s success proves them right – the socks are used by bike enthusiasts and pro cyclists all over the world.
