X-Socks rethought stability. Over-pronation or -supination stresses the joints and ligaments. The X-Socks Marathon with Supination Bandage stabilises the foot in its natural rolling movement and keeps it from turning inward or outward. The runner is better protected and runs more efficiently. Together with other X-Socks Technology, such as AirConditioning Channel, AirFlow AnklePads und Traverse AirFlow Channels, the sock is the ultimate for the marathon.
Skin Nodor is a climate-activated nano-filament which incorporates an inorganic, bacteriostatic ingredient in its interior. The gradual release of ions, which are activated by body heat, is the key to the effectiveness of Skin Nodor. These ions inhibit the growth of microorganisms rather than eliminating them outright, thus preserving the delicate balance of the skin‘s ecosystem. In other words, Skin Nodor is bacteriostatic (i.e. it inhibits bacterial growth), rather than bactericidal (bacteria-killing). Therefore, allergic reactions do not occur. Skin Nodor is especially soft and breathable and provides superior fit.
A lightweight, pH neutral, hypoallergenic fibre. Reduces the accumulation of germs and bacteria.
Impact-absorbing, hollow-core fibres for reducing pressure and impact thanks to enclosed air chambers.
X-Socks positioned the Air-Conditioning Channel under the arch of the foot, the area that normally does not touch the ground. It begins there and then moves along the foot up to the cuff. Covering only 30 % of the skin’s surface, it is constructed using a fine-knit mesh, so with every step, moist air is pumped out of the shoe and fresh air is drawn back in. An optimal air circulation system for the foot is now a reality: fresh air can even be circulated within a snug-fitting shoe.
Traverse AirFlow Channel System
The three-channel cross-ventilation system helps conduct warmth and moisture into the Air-Conditioning Channel.
