There's a new product making strides in the market. Currently being worn by a number of Premier League players including Wolves midfielder and England international Matt Jarvis, MetaSox are gaining momentum with their unique product designed to protect any footballer's number one asset - their feet. Check out this new piece of kit and share your thoughts online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
The sports socks, available in a variety of sizes, are designed to offer protection from injury to the Metatarsal region. Formed from a specially engineered, flexible and elasticated silicon compound, the MetaSox impact pad provides an extended contact period with the ball, passing on additional power to the wearer while acting as an enhanced protection zone.
Metasox Elite performance sports socks can be worn underneath your standard football socks and are designed in a winged shape to cover the full Metatarsal region from 1st to 5th. At only 3mm deep the MetaSox silicon panel can withstand 40 Newtons of force. MetaSox sports socks could be the perfect piece of additional kit to the increasing array of professional and amateur players choosing to wear additional under-socks.
The MetaSox impact pad is engineered to extend the sweet spot, like a driver in golf, benefits for a more accurate pass and shot rate with less reaction from impact when striking the ball off-centre. Matt Jarvis is currently one of the biggest names to back the products benefits. “I use the socks for training and games. They are very comfortable and lightweight and give me the added cushion I need with crosses and shots. The socks are now part of my day to day preparation."
MetaSox sports socks are available as both full-length "Club Classic" socks or the smaller sized "Sports Sock", as seen in the images above. As a product that focuses on injury prevention alongside performance enhancements, MetaSox socks could be on the cusp of a very successful 2012. Priced at around £20.00 GBP / $30.00 USD / €25.00 EURO they are now available to order from selected retailers.
