Why Red On socks?
Red On socks have zone-specific compression where you need it for the most superior comfort and support.
Specially developed HEX-TECH technology provides enhanced protection and grip through the mid-foot. Extra padding in the heels, arch and toes prevents blisters and breathable fabric reduces sweat build up, keeping your feet dry and comfortable all day long.
Snug and supportive fit
Designed to ensure a uniquely comforting fit that conforms to the structure of your individual foot, reducing friction and the risk of blisters.
Developed by elite coaches
Developed in consultation with professional sporting and tactical athletes, Red On Socks are made to be strong and durable, able to withstand even the most arduous of tasks
Made from the highest quality materials for a comfortable fit and long-lasting wear. The stretch cotton blend is soft on your skin and moulds to the contours of your feet, providing enhanced protection, grip and comfort.
The classic crew length ensures the sock sits above most boots, preventing rubbing, whilst being perfect for making a fashion statement in the gym. Available in a range of colours and styles, there is a Red On sock for anyone with any aim.
Coach Mike Chadwick
“As one of the leading Tactical Athlete coaches in the world, I manipulate and control training variables to ensure people have the ability to pass some of the most arduous courses in the world. I make them strong and durable to withstand anything thrown at them. But one thing I couldn’t control was their feet durability. During long workouts and gruelling tasks, people’s socks would often rub, fall down and cause blisters and become generally uncomfortable.
That’s why I developed Red On socks. The socks bridge the gap and ensure people’s feet are kept comfortable, supported and in optimal condition throughout their training and courses, no matter how intense, allowing them to train for longer, push themselves further and find a way to win.”
The technology behind Red On Socks ensure there is comfort in the heels and toes where blisters are most common and they’re breathable in places where sweat normally builds up. The socks also have compression around the Achilles tendon to help improve elastic energy return, making you more efficient, with studies showing running economy can nearly be doubled in humans by improving elastic energy return of the Achilles tendon.
This is because when you run your Achilles tendon stretches and recoils. As one of your feet swings forward,
the Achilles tendon in that foot is stretched out greatly. Then, as your foot hits the ground, your Achilles
tendon recoils, similar to how an elastic band will snap back into shape after its released. The added
compression in Red On Socks around the Achilles aides this recoil because, like the Achilles, it too wants
to snap back into shape as quick as possible.
Best of all, it doesn’t cost you anything – in terms of energy or oxygen. The energy comes from ‘stored energy’, put into the Achilles tendon when it was stretched prior to foot strike. With Red On Socks, your Achilles tendons have help in ‘returning’ energy, making you more efficient.
