Adding grip socks to your kit can make all the difference when you’re on the pitch. Grip socks are designed to reduce the slipping and friction that damages your foot’s comfort and agility. They help players to gain that extra second’s edge that can stand between a crushing defeat and thrilling victory.
Grippy socks are also commonly used in yoga, pilates, and barre classes to prevent slippage on floor surfaces. Grip socks are also worn by people with swollen ankles or feet to improve their ability to participate in physical activity.
Grip socks are thicker than regular threadbare sports socks, so they protect the feet against minor injuries and abrasions. They are breathable to keep the feet cool and comfortable, while they are resistant to blisters. This is particularly important in pre-season and during summer when footballers’ feet are prone to overheating. The textured soles and rubber traction on the bottom of the socks prevent the shoes from slipping.
The SOXPro non-slip grip socks feature fine silicone arrows that generate a Grip: IN action within the shoe to avoid internal slipping. This is the cause of many footballers’ discomfort, as it damages their agility and limits their game energy. The specialised socks also allow the foot to remain firmly locked into the shoe, thus preventing lateral and vertical movements that damage the contact between the shoe and the foot. custom grip socks
