GripLock™ Wins the Innovation Award at Meet the Manufacturer

We recently exhibited at Meet the Manufacturer, run by Make It British; a strongly patriotic campaign dedicated to supporting British manufacturing. Sporting our signature sequined suits, we were campaigning in our own way; spreading the word as far as we could about our finely crafted socks.



As part of the show, we pitched our GripLock™ technology to an audience and a panel of judges in an effort to win the Innovation Accelerator award… and we won!

The principle behind our GripLock™ technology is simple: the sock sticks to your foot so that there is no friction between your skin and your sock, hence no irritation that causes blisters. The technology is deployed into the inherent properties of the sock fabric, which follows the exact contours of the foot for maximum contact area.

“We are proud and honoured to have received such an award. We feel that innovation is a key part of growing our British manufacturing with our brands SockMine and Roy’s Boys. On a personal level, the GripLock™ socks have been working fantastically in my training for my half marathon in Derby.” – Ben Lowe
