How can a pair of sports socks help runners?
With the rise of the running trend, a variety of running equipment began to enter daily life. Runners protect themselves with these innovative, technologically-sense running equipment and help them perform various sports better. Among the many equipment, there is one of the most common and important functions, but is easily overlooked by us: sports socks.
Sports socks, as the name suggests, refer to socks that are specially worn during exercise. But most people disagree with it, because in many people's minds, a pair of socks can be worn for sports as long as they have no holes and are of good quality. There is nothing wrong with this idea, but more targeted sports socks are more important to us than ordinary socks.
So, how do sports socks help runners? Let's learn about it through the following
Sports socks, which seem to be no different from ordinary socks, actually have many invisible functions: quick-drying, breathable, sweat-absorbent, deodorant, fit to the shape of the foot, strong wrapping, etc.
different from the socks we wear daily, professional sports socks These features can help runners perform better when running.
1. Absorb sweat better
One of the basic functions of sports socks is to improve the quick-drying and sweat-absorbing function through more scientific knitting methods and targeted materials. In running, especially in long-distance running, people will have a lot of sweat on their feet. Without good sports socks to absorb sweat, it will easily cause sweat to pass through the socks to the insoles, running shoe linings and other parts. At this time, it is easy to affect the wearing feeling of running shoes, and accelerate the wear of running shoes.
2. Increase friction and stabilize your feet
Ordinary socks that are evenly woven have a smoother bottom and are difficult to friction with the midsole insole to stabilize the feet. Unlike sports socks, which have a special knitting treatment on the soles of the feet, they are more bumpy and increase friction, which can better stabilize the feet. This function must not be underestimated. Many knees and ankles are injured. It may be caused by the instability of the feet inside the running shoes.
3. Targeted thickening to protect your feet
Hold a pair of sports socks in your hand and you can see that they have been thickened in many places. For example: the thickening of the toe is to avoid damage to the toe and the inner fabric of the toe cap when the running shoe has the problem of the top toe; some sports socks with higher upper socks will also be thickened at the ankle, heel, and Achilles tendon. This is to avoid frictional damage to these parts when the material of running shoes is relatively rigid.
4. Provide certain support
Another difference between sports socks and ordinary socks is that sports socks tend to have better wrapping properties. Coupled with some part of the thickening treatment, sports socks can provide runners with a certain foot support function, So that runners will not have leg soreness after running.
5. Fit the foot shape, enhance foot feel, cushion and protect
Thicker sports socks often provide runners with good foot feel and cushioning protection. Many runners do not think how much cushioning ability a pair of socks can have, but in fact, the cushioning ability of a pair of sports socks is not bad. In terms of personal experience, when training barefoot, the difference between barefoot and wearing a pair of sports socks is very obvious. If you also try to run barefoot, wearing a good pair of sports socks is a very good choice. The good foot feeling it brings will also make you more motivated to run.
