Grip socks provide extra support and stability to feet, helping athletes to perform better, stay injury free & play longer.
Slippage in footwear can lead to blistering & wear & tear on bones & tendons in the foot & ankle, but the non-slip grip pads in these special socks help to reduce this rubbing & increase the life of your boots. They can also help to improve circulation in the feet which can alleviate numbness, swelling & cramping, often caused by poor blood flow resulting from intense activity for long periods of time.
Grip socks are made of breathable material so they keep your feet cool and dry during games, as well as providing plenty of comfort. The grippy pads on the bottom are usually a form of rubber or silicone that provides traction & stability to your foot when wearing sports shoes. Many brands have also incorporated cushioning in the heel & toe areas which provide added comfort if you are playing for a long period of time.
Players will usually tape the grip socks to their official team socks. This can be done by either sock tape or cohesive sock wrap which are both available in various colours to match your team’s socks. Alternatively, some players choose to cut the foot out of their regular socks before wearing their grip socks – this is usually around the ball of the foot but not so high that it exposes the grippy pad. athletic grip socks
