Liiteguard also put a great honour in making some quality compression socks, which can help you on your way to avoid injuries that can cost you precious minutes on the pitch. Liiteguard has made two socks, one called Performance and another Pro-Tech. The performance sock comes with an inner sock, which keeps the shin pads in place, so you don’t need the sock tape. The Performance socks offers a compressive effect on the lower leg and this reduces muscle aches and stiffness, when you’re active on the pitch, out for a run or in the gym getting ready for a new season. Liiteguard has also placed an extra tight compression area around the achilles tendon, which can have effect on the achilles tendon pain.
The other sock is called the Pro-Tech sock and is a shorter version, while they feature extra silicone padding around the ankles. This silicone padding offers an increased stimulation in the area, when your ankle is in outer position, which will alarm the body to take action. It also features the achilles tendon compression, as on the Performance socks, while both the Pro-Tech and Performance sock come with a non-slip sole, which is coated with silicone dots, so you get a great grip in your shoes and reduce slippages in the boots and in general discomforts.
The Pro-Tech also comes with SoftAir material, which add a sublime comfort and ensuring the best possible sweat transportation. The SoftAir actually transports 4 times as much sweat as regular cotton, so you can imagine the difference that these socks offer, while blisters are going to be reduced significantly.
Some of you might already know, that it’s pretty hard to put on a compression sock. So, to help you on your way, to get the most out of the socks, Liiteguard made a guide on how to put your socks on correctly. Basically, you stick your hand into the sock and turn the sock inside out. Then you put your foot into the sock and place the heel in place and now you can start putting your sock on, by grabbing it at the end and pulling the sock up under your knee. Does it sound tricky, then watch the videos below.
