We’re honored to be able to share our Maine tested heritage of quality and comfort with these athletes during some of the toughest competitions in the world.

Acorn (http://www.acorn.com), the Maine-based makers of premium slippers, casual footwear and socks, and creators of the iconic Original Slipper Sock is excited to announce their invitation to the premier action sports event of the winter in Aspen to fit all 325 athletes with Acorn Original Slipper Socks.

The invitation was extended to Acorn because many of the athletes were known to wear Acorn slippers for comfort before and after competitions. Each of the athletes will be fitted with their perfect pair of Acorn Original Slipper Socks in the athletes’ comfort lounge before competing in the games.

Avery Schmeisser, Director at Acorn, said: “We’re thrilled to be chosen to fit all the athletes with their perfect pair of Slipper Socks. Acorn makes premium après footwear for indoors and out, fireplace and fire pit, so we know the athletes will appreciate our enduring, down to earth comfort after a long day battling the elements. We’re honored to be able to share our Maine tested heritage of quality and comfort with these athletes during some of the toughest competitions in the world.”

The Original Slipper Sock is the same famous slipper sock that has accompanied NASA shuttles into space since 1982. Available in grey ragg wool or grey cotton twist, the Slipper Sock is made with soft wool- or cotton-blend, a premium, multilayer Cloud Cushion™ footbed, durable leather sidewall and genuine suede sole for traction and insulation.

All Acorn products are available online at http://www.acorn.com and on online stores and retailers around the country.

About Acorn

So one day, he went down to his workshop and hand-stitched something special. Something that was part slipper, part sock, and all comfort. Just like that, the iconic Acorn slipper sock was born. From the original Slipper Sock to technologically advanced indoor/ outdoor footwear, Acorn offers consumers an expansive and varied collection of lifestyle footwear appropriate for all seasons.
