The England 16/17 Away Match Socks bring a vibrant spark of contrast to the head-to-toe look of the rest of the kit and highlight the most dynamic part of the footballer’s body - the lower legs - to accentuate speed.
NikeGRIP provides more friction for more traction during football specific movements such as acceleration, deceleration, rotation and cutting.
To achieve the increased grip, Nike looked to nature and specifically the gripping qualities of the gecko. Like a gecko, which can climb vertical surfaces thanks to the traction provided by hundreds of tiny hairs on its toes, the nanofibre of NikeGRIP socks creates far more contact points with the foot and shoe than one fibre alone. Twisting the nanofibre with traditional fibres used in sock manufacturing, therefore, creates the ultimate sock fibre.
Working off wear-testing data, Nike have increased contact points on the big toe and heel as well as simply improving the sock’s fit, dialing its size and eliminating extra fabric for a more precise heel-lock system. From there, NikeGRIP works in concert with Nike shoe insoles to ultimately boost an athlete’s purchase, and poise.Features Include:
- New heel lock fit for increased friction.
- Mesh zoned ventilation in the upper toe area and arch.
- Agility flex ribs eliminates bulk and allows maximum movement.
- Micro-cushioned arch allows sock to grip the foot eliminating slippage between foot and sock.
