Importance of Football Socks
When it comes to creating your football kit it is crucial that you choose a pair of socks suitable for soccer as opposed to a general pair. This is because football socks have been specially designed to improve the security and protection of your feet while playing soccer. Our variety of plains socks all have these attributes which makes them perfect for adding to your soccer strip:
- Elasticated cuffs
- Fold over panel
- Ribbed ankles
- Arch support
- Cushioned toe box
- Padded heel
- Anatomical shaping
- Moisture control technology
- Knee high length
Elasticated cuffs are used on football socks to ensure that they remain in place at the top of the leg as well as to allow extra room to effortlessly glide over shin pads when worn underneath. These cuffs can sometimes to used also as fold over panels for added security and provide a softer feel at the top of the leg.
Ankle and arch support are also implemented in the form of ribbed panels which create a streamline fit in order to eliminate excess fabric causing irritation. This support also holds the foot in a way which takes the pressure off the arches while playing. To add to the streamline and snug fit, these socks also have been shaped to suit the left and right foot individually, therefore you will often find an L and R on the socks to specify which is for which.
To prevent injury and make sure that your feet are well protected, the key impact zones of the feet are covered with padded cushioning. These areas are often the toe box and heels as they are the most vulnerable areas for impact. The cushioning therefore absorbs the force of kicking the ball to shield your feet from injury.
Like your football shorts and shirt, socks also include a level of moisture control technology which not only wick sweat away while on the move. But they also help to prevent the fabric from absorbing water from the outer layer back down, so that you can play in the rain and still be comfortable and dry.
