Football Grip Socks Grip Your Footwear Into Place
With split second advantages being more important than ever in the sport of football, you can’t afford to be thrown off by your feet moving around inside your footwear. This is where grip socks come in as a game-changing addition to any footballer’s kit bag.
Unlike regular football socks which can cause your feet to slip inside your shoes, grip socks feature small rubber grips on the base of the sock which make contact with the inner surface of your shoe and prevent any movement from occurring. This stability increases your ability to make sharp changes in direction and reduces the chances of ankle sprains as well as giving you more confidence when striking the ball or working to create space for yourself.
Grip socks also help to improve your proprioception, which is the body’s sense of position in relation to its surroundings – something that is important for players who have to be aware of where they are on the pitch at all times. The snug fit and compression offered by grip socks will raise blood circulation in your feet helping to protect the small muscles, ligaments and tendons up into your ankle that are traditionally one of the most common areas for injuries in footballers.
If you’re interested in trying a pair of grip socks, we recommend going for a longer style so that the non-slip rubber pads sit above your normal team socks. You don’t want the grip socks to be visible as this can detract from your game as well as causing discomfort on the skin or joints. football socks grip
