OS1st Partners with Pickleball Champion Jessie Irvine
The Leading Brand of Performance Socks and Compression Bracing Products Teams Up with Professional Pickleball Champion to Highlight the Importance of Health and Wellness
HICKORY, NC (April 4, 2023)—OS1st, the leading manufacturer of performance socks and compression-bracing products, today announced it entered into an agreement with professional pickleball champion Jessie Irvine, to act as a sponsored athlete and brand ambassador.
Irvine began her professional pickleball career in 2019. With a consistently winning record in singles and doubles, she quickly ascended the ranks of the sport to the top of the professional pickleball athlete ranks. Most recently, Irvine won silver in Mixed Doubles at the PPA Hyundai Masters and Women’s Pro Doubles at PPA Carvana Arizona Grand Slam and bronze in Mixed Doubles at the PPA Florida Open.
Irvine is known for her talent, dedication and resilience. Originally from North Carolina, her journey to pickleball began after retiring from tennis at age nineteen due to a genetic condition that makes her joints painful, severely limiting her overhand serve. In pickleball, similar to her tennis career, Irvine combines her raw athleticism and strategic mind to consistently deliver victory. To help support her body and give her every edge possible, Irvine looks to products from companies like OS1st, which designs an array of performance socks and compression bracing that helps reduce swelling, promote blood flow and provide comfort. This, paired with her wellness routine and CBD treatment, helps reduce Irvine’s joint pain and keeps her performing to the best of her abilities.
“I couldn’t be more excited to partner with a hometown brand like OS1st whose pickleball socks recently became an essential item in my wardrobe,” said Irvine. “OS1st empowers me with the tools to have a competitive edge over my competitors and to feel my best whenever I step onto the court.”
Irvine can often be seen wearing her black OS1st Pickleball Socks that use a bamboo charcoal cushion in the heel and toe for friction, impact and blister prevention and a light top panel for heat relief while playing on hot surfaces.
“We have such admiration for Jessie and her athletic achievement combined with strength amidst adversity,” said Josh Higgins, president of OS1st. “It is an honor to welcome her to the OS1st family as a sponsored athlete. Jessie embodies our core values of keeping active and doing what you love and amplifies our shared efforts to help other athletes achieve their best selves, even when their bodies fight back.”
