Whether you’re just getting started or trying to break into the pros, soccer grip socks will help you get that extra edge on the field. With a combination of support, protection and traction often tailored for standing in shorts and cleats, they’re the perfect addition to any player’s wardrobe.
Taking a tumble in soccer can be disastrous, especially when you’re on wet grass or playing on muddy fields. Without proper footing, you could lose control of the ball or fall over, which can lead to serious injury. With grip socks, you can stay stable and confident on all types of surfaces, no matter how slippery.
Grip socks have special rubberized soles that increase traction, giving you the confidence to make lightning-fast cuts or evade defenders. They’re also designed to absorb sweat and keep your feet dry, which can help prevent blisters.
Grip socks are worn over regular football socks. Many players cut the foot section off their team socks, so they can wear them with grip socks while still keeping their official matchday kit in the correct color and design. Some even use tape around the cut-out section, to make sure the grip socks aren’t exposed outside of the boots. This way, the specialized rubber pads of the grip socks are always in contact with the shoes, instead of the cotton or synthetic fabric of the team socks. This also reduces friction, which can cause blisters. The reduced movement inside the shoes also helps to eliminate micro slips that waste time and reduce control.
