"What are the most interesting technological advances when it comes to sock design/manufacturing? One of the most exciting things we’re seeing more of in the apparel industry is the introduction of 3-D printing. This allows you create designs and fabric combinations more immediately, which VIM & VIGR takes advantage of. We use some of the concepts of 3-D printing in the development of our designs by using the medical knitting machines that provide a circular knit, which mimics 3D printing technology. In terms of compression specifically, the medical knitting machines have become much more sophisticated over the past several years. The impressive strides in technology have allowed us to incorporate more fun and detailed designs while still achieving a graduated compression sock. We’ll have even more patterns coming out this fall, stay tuned!" - Heaven Has Heels
