What: An an­tib­lis­ter sock made with newly patented tech­nol­ogy

Why: Socks made with a

GripLock­fab­ric that works by

‘stick­ing’ the sock to the wearer’s feet, min­imis­ing move­ment be­tween the ma­te­rial and the skin. This re­moves fric­tion from the skin and re­duces the like­li­hood of blis­ters. The socks also fea­ture Cool­max® tech­nol­ogy, to keep feet cool and dry. The SockMine de­sign fea­tures meshed fab­ric on top of the foot for breatha­bil­ity and ex­tra pad­ding on the sole for com­fort. Avail­able as track-spe­cial­ist, trail or marathon run­ning socks, they won a na­tional in­no­va­tion award last year.

Where: Track socks cost £12 per pair, marathon socks are £10 per pair and trail socks are £11. All from
