IDF creates socks you can wear for two weeks straight -- מעשה אבות סימן לבנים

So the latest news is that the IDF is distributing to their soldiers special socks:
Israel's foot soldiers are getting new odour-free socks that can be worn for two weeks straight without smelling or stinking up the feet, the Maariv daily reported on Thursday.
This seems to me to be recreating our ancestors' meritorious actions in Egypt. From midrash Lekach Tov:

כננד ד׳ זכיות שבידם, שלא שינו את לשונם
ולא חילפו את שמלותם, ולא גילו את סודם
דכתי׳ ושאלה אשת משכנתה ולא בטלו ברית מילה

I own them too, although I don't wear them for two weeks. Its good for athletic activity. Its called Cupron; they weave copper into the sock.

Wait, you need special socks to do this?

You can buy this at the official site, or Google it. Many merchants sell it. Same tech.
