What is the GripLock™ Sock and What are the Benefits?

Here at Sockmine we think that it is important that every runner owns a pair of socks that are comfortable and protect you against blisters. With our 20 plus years of experience in the sock industry we decided we would create our own anti-blister technology that actually works! GripLock™.

What is GripLock™? 

GripLock™ technology is our own patented and innovative design which was created to solve the big issue that all runners dread, blisters.

As we all know blisters are caused by friction between the skin and fabric over a period of time. That is why it is important to have footwear that fits you perfectly, not just shoes but socks as well, as they have just as much to blame for those painful blisters.

GripLock™ socks minimise the friction between your feet and shoes, which prevents you from getting blisters. 

What are the Benefits of Wearing GripLock™ Socks? 

  • Minimises movement – The GripLock™ technology in our GripLock™ socks helps adhere the socks to your feet which minimises movement.
  • Breathability – To make sure your feet stay dry and cool, we use COOLMAX® technology for extra breathability while you run. 
  • Further and faster for longer – We designed the GripLock™ sock to give you the ultimate fit and control, which helps you to perform better for longer. 

Putting your GripLock™ Socks on.

Putting your GripLock™ socks on will feel like no other socks you have worn before. For a start you wont be able to just pull them on as they will grip you feet as soon as you try slide them up. You will need to roll them up into place.

The easiest way to do this is to bunch the socks up to the toes and then unroll up your feet. Don’t worry once you’ve don’t this once it’ll feel like normal.

Once you’ve got them on, they may also feel slightly tighter than your standard running sock especially if you have opted for the GripLock™ Lightweight range. This is just the technology in the socks doing its job and you will get used to it.

Wearing your GripLock™ Socks in.

 Like all good pairs of trainers, you will need to wear your socks in so that you and your feet get used to them, which shouldn’t take long.

We would recommend going on a light short run or walk just to bed them in.
