Nester Hosiery designs and manufactures the most innovative socks in the world – for mountaineers, firefighters, military personnel, athletes, and anyone who loves a perfect pair of socks.
Factory History: Founded in 1993 by Marty Nester, our partner factory in North Carolina began as a small family-owned and operated business, and has since proudly expanded to keep up with high global demands. Nester relocated to Mount Airy in 2002, and moved into a new state-of-the art building in 2005. It produces the most innovative socks on the market, and it does everything with an eye on the community, both locally and globally.
Town Highlights: MOUNTAINS. MUSIC. MAYBERRY. MERLOT. Mayberry RFD icon Andy Griffith grew up in Mount Airy, North Carolina, and it's no coincidence that a stroll down Mount Airy's Main Street reminds people of the town of Mayberry from The Andy Griffith Show. In addition to Mayberry RFD and Andy Griffith, visitors find that Mount Airy, North Carolina is a great jumping off point for exploring the Yadkin Valley wine region, the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway, the stunning pinnacle of Pilot Mountain, or the twangy sound of bluegrass and old-time music. Whatever your passion, we invite you to step back to a simpler time when you visit Andy Griffith's hometown of Mount Airy, North Carolina—affectionately known as Mayberry RFD.
