Custom grip socks provide an extra boost of safety, comfort and traction to your customers when they play on your trampoline park, soft play, inflatable park or aqua park. They are also a great revenue stream for your facility to offer.
Grip socks are becoming increasingly popular among players seeking an edge over their rivals. These specialised socks have been designed with a range of specialized features to enhance grip to help improve ball and movement control.
They are often worn in combination with specially designed football shoes that have rubber traction to increase the contact between the shoe and foot for improved stability, agility and performance. Grip socks are breathable to reduce sweating of the feet which can cause blisters. They are thicker than regular threadbare socks to avoid minor injuries and abrasions.
Slipping on the football pitch is a serious issue that has caused many players to lose trophies and medals in their career. It is therefore essential to nip this problem in the bud by using grip socks that prevent slipping and add more power to your feet.
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether grip socks can reduce in-shoe foot motion and improve change of direction performance compared with traditional socks. This was done by measuring the static coefficient of friction between the sock and shoe with the use of a sledge and pulley system. Results showed that there was a significant reduction in the amount of in-shoe foot motion and a greater ability to turn when wearing grip socks. custom grip socks
