FITS®, makers of the best fitting performance socks in the market place, announced it has appointed Groundswell PR to oversee its media and influencer relations in the outdoor, fitness and natural products arenas, as well as manage the brand’s social media outlets.
“Groundswell lives the high-performance, genuinely adventurous lifestyle we design our socks for,” said Luke Eldridge, FITS Sales Director. “It was an easy choice to designate our day-to-day communications to a firm so deeply rooted in the active lifestyle and outdoor sports industry.”
Leveraging technical expertise and long-held knowledge of fit and comfort, the family-owned company remains committed to its vision, its people, and responding to an industry-wide epidemic of ill-fitting socks.
